ARCHERY

Come and shoot your bow 

Our Members Only Archery Range is back up and running. With the lack of Ammo, why not come out and shoot arrows instead. The cost is not bad and you can learn a new skill. Remember, the good ole Duke boys could not own guns but they could really wreak havoc with a Bow.

 You are free to use our large 4'x4'  archery targets with your equipment and set up as if you were shooting live rounds. all safety rules for firearms apply to the use of the ranges for archery. The bay for these activities is the CCH bay, just ask the RSO to use the targets and have fun. 

You don't have to be a member to take any of our Archery Seminars or classes. We have Basic Archery Seminars on the training calendar for the 1st saturday of the month!!! 

Our intermediate and advanced classes are also listed at different times. We have Recurve and Compound Bows for you to rent and use when you are taking our classes and semianrs.  Want to learn the basics of Archery, our instructor Bryan Walsh will guide you through the Setup and use of either Compound or Recurve Archery for sport or Hunting.
