Archery

Annual Big Game 3D Shoot
Each year on the second weekend in July, for the thirty years, WCW hosts a public Big Game 3D Shoot throughout the whole grounds.  The gun ranges are quiet for the weekend, allowing some incredible archery shots.  3D targets are all sizes from bear and moose, down to squirrels.

Ed Eliason Archery Field
This range is dedicated to World Archery competitions.  Numerous 720 and 1440 tournaments are held each summer.  Many State Records have been shot on this range.  In 2018, 5 World Records were set by Para-Archer, Kevin Mather.  This is the home range for a number of USA Archery National Team Members. Named after 1972 Olympic Archer, Ed Eliason, who helped established this range.

Flat Range
Our covered Flat Range has targets from 20 to 80 yards. The shooting line is under cover and the targets are lit for evening shooting by members with permission. Public shooters are done at 7pm or dusk.

Bow Hunter Walk-Thru Range
Our Walk-thru range has 50+ animal bag targets in a natural hunting setting. There are marked firing points and sheltered targets with no marked distances.  It is planed to be sanctioned as a NFAA Field Range in 2019.

Outdoor Ranges

Indoor Range
We have an indoor archery range which is open to members and the public during the winter months on Sunday and Monday evenings. Targets are shot at 60 feet. Recurves, compounds and longbows are used by the participants and the members in charge of each evening are always willing to help out those who would like to improve their shooting technique.
