When looking for a fun weekend outing, nothing comes close to the unique experience many had at the Orvis Game Fair and Country Sporting Weekend at Sandonona Shooting Grounds in Millbrook, New York. Sandonona Shooting Grounds are a place of extreme natural beauty, especially in the fall with the gorgeous scenery of the Historic Hudson Valley. Not only is it a stunning location, but also it brings traditions of field and hunt to experts and newbies alike.
Around this picturesque site you find artists, craftsmen, exhibitors, vendors, events all dedicated to the country-sporting lifestyle. Everyone had a great time with the fly-fishing and shooting lessons, dog-training seminars, birds of prey exhibitions, learning how to cook wild game, and an adventurous Land Rover driving course. Most of these activities were open to all ages and all experience levels. It was a chance to experiment and try to find a new lifetime hobby, refine your skills, or try out some of the best equipment available.
When looking at the weekend as a whole, it is almost as if you are stepping back in time creating a link from the past passions to the current ones and passing traditions on to future generations.
