Archery – New Course Design

New Archery course designed recently, this is just one of the new shots on the course, the Running Bear.  Come try out the new course efore the season opens!

Many people think of FSC as a firearm shooting club, but did you know that we also offer Archery opportunities year round?

Nestled slightly off the beaten path and in a peaceful setting behind our horseshoe area lies our 3-D Archery range, available year round with no charge to our members.  This practice range offers you the flexibility of shooting from the ground, or from an elevated platform that simulates a tree stand.

As archery season approaches, it’s time to start tuning up your bows and your skills.  FSC has that covered too with our extended, “Through the Woods” 3-D Archery course twice a year in August and September!

The “Through the Woods” 3-D course has approximately thirty targets set in realistic shooting situations along a path through FSC’s own “Sherwood Forest”. Ranges vary from up close and personal shots to some at 40+ yards.  The course also offers elevated shots, platforms, a simulated blind, and a real arrow-buster on the rocks.

These life-sized hogs, elk, cougars, and of course, white-tailed deer targets along with other animal targets are placed in natural settings to allow for the best bow hunting scenarios you can have, just short of filling a tag!

It takes a pair of archers about an hour and a half to complete the course, with more in your group adding to that time….and with the eyes of your partner being upon you, adds a little more pressure, and adds to the realism.

After completing the “through the Woods” 3-D course, you have a chance to win some real money by shooting at a hanging egg or hitting a Money prize on a long range target!

EQUIPMENT: Conventional tackle, long bows, re-curves; compounds and crossbows are all are welcome.  Heck, bring your atlatl or blowgun if you want.  But you must use target tips no broader than the diameter of the arrow shaft – no broad-heads allowed.

Remember, this is a “Through the Woods” course – it’s suggested to bring bug spray, wear sturdy footwear, and have plenty of arrows.

The shoots start at 9 a.m. with the last shooters allowed on the course no later than 1 p.m.  We are a family friendly Club, and spectators are welcome to join you.  Our kitchen will also be open for breakfast and lunch.

All of this Through the Woods fun will set you back very little whether you’re a member or not.  Junior shooters are charged less, and 12 years of age and under can shoot for free.

2018 Events are now on the calendar!

Please take a moment to look at the upcoming events & any range closures on the calendar of events for the upcoming year.

An interesting feature is that the calendar can be “exported / uploaded” to your calendar so as not to miss a FSC event or range closure again.
