About Lars Jacob
Unless Lars Jacob is turkey hunting, everything that he does revolves around shotgunning. Jacob has been teaching the finer art of wing shooting for over 30 years. He currently is the Director of Shooting for Covey and Nye and the prestigious Dutch River Club. In the past he has run shooting programs and gun rooms for The Orvis Company and Upland Outfitters. Not only will he find customers a perfect shotgun, but he’ll also show them how to properly shoot it.
In addition to instruction, Jacob is recognized as one of the country’s finest gun fitters and recently worked with Perazzi’s Al Kondak to develop the Perazzi Ladies Sporter. He has a soft spot for side-by-sides and has introduced thousands of shooters to the nuances associated with shooting such shotguns.
“I’ve been able to study with some of the great names in shooting instruction both here and abroad. I’ve learned a tremendous amount from Alan Rose at the West London Shooting School and from Ken Davies from Holland and Holland. The kind of upland bird hunting done stateside is very different than the Brits, and so I’ve distilled a lot of their wisdom with my own experience.”
