You will have the use of an outdoor Archery Range; currently set up with target butts with a range of up to 70 meters. These are target butts only; not designed for use with hunting arrows equipped with broad heads so you will have to bring your own broad head block. We have expanded our range with a cross bow only butt; and a sand pit for shooting broad heads into. We have built a field archery range for the use of target arrows only and will be adding to that range to make it a 12 butt Permanent range, there are plans in the works to hang bag targets on these butts for the winter months, again for target arrows only! for more information Ost287642@gmail.com.
We are planning on doing 3D rounds in the future. But we need someone to organize the event so contact me if you would be interested in helping
When Winter comes we also offer an indoor archery in Oliver and run the program all winter on Monday nights for adults with limited coaching. Our Junior Program runs on Thursday nights from 6 to 7:30 ish Adults after that. For more information on this program contact Mary Ostermeier email@example.com.
We also offer membership in the BC Archery Association and their programs.
We have a 185 yards long, range that will accommodate three to six shooters at a time in a covered shooting house with sound dampening installations. Do NOT under any circumstances use a shotgun nor Handguns in the Rifle Range! For Shotguns we have a patterning board ready for use in the Upper Trap Ranges!
|There are two trap ranges one of these are used weekly with an organized practice happening on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. The rest of the time you would have to bring your own throwers to make use of this excellent setup.
