The Quiver - Latest Archery Newsletter
The Archery Venue has something for everyone with enough variety to keep your interest and skills strong. We have a field range with target butts from 10 to 70 yards, a three kilometer trail with a variety of 3D targets. There is our field house and the Old Archers Cabin complete with a wood stove to warm up on chilly winter days. Not only all that, the venue is home to the world's longest long bow, proudly displayed on the road up to the range.
We have over a hundred members participating on a regular basis with everything from traditional long bows, recurve bows and compounds. Our members range from recreational target shooters who enjoy testing themselves on the trails, to hunters honing their skills. We have monthly meetings and publish our newsletter, The Quiver, on a monthly basis to keep our members informed and involved.
We hold an open invitational 3-D Shoot every spring and a women's 3-D shoot in the fall. This year, 2017, we again hosted the North America Longbow Safari with archers from Whitehorse to the Bahamas.
