Orvis Pulls the Trigger on New Podcast

Orvis "Double Barrel" Takes Aim at Hunters and the Shotgun Sportsman

SUNDERLAND, VT--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - The Orvis Company just released a new podcast on hunting and shotgun sports titled "The Orvis Double Barrel." This free, regularly-updated podcast features Orvis Hunting Product Developer Brett Ference and Orvis' Head Shotgun Instructor Bruce Bowlen as they discuss tips and tricks to improve your shooting and help you have more fun and success in the field.

"Double Barrel" comes on the heels of the wildly successful "Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast" hosted by Tom Rosenbauer.

"The success of Tom's fly-fishing podcast inspired us to create this new show," said James Hathaway, Senior Communications Manager for Orvis "Brett and Bruce have some great chemistry. Brett's a relatively younger hunter and shooter, and Bruce is the author of 'The Orvis Wing-Shooting Handbook' and a seasoned pro with more than 35 years of teaching under his belt at the Orvis Manchester Wingshooting School. They have some really informative, fun back and forth sessions on technique."

Most recently the show has featured guest spots by Jordan Smith, veteran gunsmith of the storied Orvis Gun Room as well as Orvis CEO Perk Perkins.

"We're shooters and hunters ourselves," said Brett Ference, co-host of "Double Barrel." "We are trying to create the kind of show that we would like to hear. I think we are doing just that and having a lot of fun doing it!"
