When it comes to outdoor gear and the outdoor lifestyle, if the Orvis Company doesn’t come to mind, you should probably think again!
Orvis has been an outdoor lifestyle brand since before lifestyle brands were cool and they remain at the forefront of the industry today. Last week I caught up with our guest, Reid Bryant, where he was repping the Orvis Company as wingshooting services manager at Pheasant Fest in Schaumburg, Ill.
Ever wonder how somebody becomes wingshooting services manager for Orvis? Tune into the show to hear Reid tell you himself. We cover Reid’s intro and journey into the world of upland hunting before transitioning to our trials and tribulations in becoming better wingshooters. We examine the rich history of Orvis while shedding some light on just how much the outdoor lifestyle is ingrained into the fabric and people of the company. Our conversation would not have been complete without discussing one of Reid’s biggest writing projects to date, The Orvis Guide to Upland Hunting, which “serves as a definitive resource that explains all there is to know about upland hunting.”
Orvis Guide To Upland Hunting
“The Orvis Guide to Upland Hunting provides an in-depth primer for new or aspiring wing shooters, covering all aspects of upland hunting from selecting ammunition to field dressing game birds. Filled with stunning images by acclaimed outdoor photographer Brian Grossenbacher, this book is far more than simply an instructional piece: it will give the pursuit of upland game birds flesh, emotion, and identity. Extensively illustrated, it serves as a definitive resource that explains all there is to know about upland hunting. Hardcover. USA.
