Orvis Names Harris Springs Sportsman's Preserve of Waterloo, South Carolina the Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year

MANCHESTER, VT--(Marketwire - April 23, 2008) - When your clientele is good with a shotgun, you want to be sure your customer service goes above and beyond what most would come to expect. The Orvis Company annually grants its Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year award to the wingshooting facility that offers not just the best bird hunting in the North America, but also offers an outstanding attention to guests' needs.

This week The Orvis Company announced that the Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge of the Year award has gone to the Harris Springs Sportsman's Preserve of Waterloo, South Carolina. Tucked away in the gently rolling Piedmont hills of South Carolina, Harris Springs captures the very spirit of the southern hunting tradition. The lodge is replete with groves of natural hardwoods, red oaks and southern pine, which embrace acres of fields gone fallow or ripe with crops.

For more than twenty years the Orvis Company has been recognizing excellence in sporting experiences through its Endorsed Lodges Outfitters and Guides program. Each endorsed operation has its own character, but all share the same high standards: great service, great hunting, and an experienced, professional staff. These standards of excellence are continually reviewed by the Orvis staff and evaluated by visiting guests in post-visit critiques sent directly to The Orvis Company. Orvis-Endorsed operations cater to all shooters, from beginners to experts.

Founded in 1856, Orvis pioneered the mail order industry in the United States, operates a chain of retail stores in the U.S. and England including its Flagship store in Manchester, VT; and maintains a network of more than 400 dealers worldwide. Orvis donates five percent of pre-tax profits each year to environmental programs. You can read more about Orvis on their website at
