Outdoor Range

The outdoor range sits on approx. 80 acres of beautifully wooded leased land. There is a clubhouse, picnic tables, fire pits, playground equipment, and room for RV parking.  Outdoor shooting on the static range and 3D loops is available year round. In summer, three 3D loops are open that vary in size from 3.5-5 km in length, and in the winter one 3D loop is maintained. Traditional and Compound Bows only – No Crossbows or Broadheads.
