Wingshooting Trips
The piedmont of North Carolina and southern Virginia abounds with farms and fields perfect for an upland excursion, allowing us to put you on birds within 30 minutes or less.  With all of the hunting opportunities so close, it's crazy to drive for an hour or more to enjoy an afternoon of hunting.  Every trip we promote is focused on preserving the tradition of wild bird hunting.

Our Attention to Detail
Wing & Fly guided trips generally include guide, dogs, bird cleaning assistance, photography, and snacks.  Shotguns and shells available upon request for modest fee.  License required for most hunts. Call for more info.

Wild Bird Hunts** (1-3 persons)

Populations of wild bobwhite quail, ruffed grouse, or migratory woodcock are a precious resource that we do not take lightly.  This trip is only for those enthusiasts who care more about the pursuit than the harvest.  Hunters should expect a lot of walking and not much shooting.  A small portion of each trip goes to the landowner or local conservation partner to help manage habitat.

Full Day only at select locationsReservations required.

Piedmont Woodcock                                 $285

Managed Wild Quail (Jan3rd -Feb 28th)      $550

Early Release Quail                                   $490

High Country Grouse (Linville/Newland/Sparta)  $350

Mountain Grouse (Asheville, Waynesville, Sylva)  $400

**At least two weeks notice is required.  Hunters should be in good physical condition and able to walk 3-5 miles over moderate terrain through cover.  All grouse hunts are fairly strenuous. Locations and availability subject to change frequently.  Add $25.00 for a 2nd or 3rd hunter. No additional charge for youth under 16.


Wing & Fly Company no longer promotes or provides preserve hunts as a general service.  We do occasionally offer these hunts for repeat clients or for special circumstances (youth opportunity, dog work, or destination training).  Please call for more information or for a referral to a nearby preserve.

*-Base price, some locations may be higher. Bird numbers can be specified, but we plan hunts to mimic wild bird behavior rather than maximize harvest.

Hunting Locations

Our hunts generally occur within a 2 hour drive from the Greensboro area.  However, depending on conditions or forecast, we will recommend traveling farther to ensure a good hunt (specified by guide). Be sure to mention any planning restrictions at time of booking, as we constantly arrange travel to maximize hunting time and decrease "windshield" time.
