ARCHERY SECTION

2021 Archery Events

Weekly practice Tuesday nights at the silhouette range
May 25 to Aug 31: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Sept 7 to 28: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

 


We practice on foam block targets and 3D animals. If you are new to the sport, we have club bows for you to borrow. All levels of experience and bow types are welcome. If you have a crossbow or use broad-head tips please bring your own target, as they will damage the club targets.

Members who would like to bring their bows to the range outside our Tuesday time slot, we recommend using the Silhouette or the Plinking range. You will have to bring your own target.

Types of Bows: Image result for recurve bow

Recurve Bows: At the moment, this is the most popular bow we see at the range. This well rounded bow is popular for beginners not because it is easy, be cause it has fewer accessories to worry about. A ‘traditional’ or ‘bare’ recurve bow means there is no mounted sight to help you aim. Olympic recurves have mounted sights and stabilizers and are made for a competitive edge.Recurve bow

 

 

 

 

 

 

Compound bows: A popular choice for hunters, as they are shorter in length and have mounted sights. The wheels (cams) at the ends of the limps hold some of the draw weight when the archer pulls the bow string all the way back, allowing for more time to aim.
