Archery Ranges?

12 posts in this topic

Hello SWMN!

I am hoping you folks could point me to the nearest archery range near Redwood?

I'm getting into fletching my own arrows and also need a good bow tune up, so I am hoping I can get some suggestions as to where to go around here for that.

Thanks a ton!

i think the Saratoga Archery Club by Tracy would be the closest. there is also a club in Wilmar. You could also check out the Minnesota State Archery Association's web site. they have a list of clubs from accross the state. if you need help finding a club, let me know.

Twin Rivers in New Ulm had an indoor range, there is also a outdoor one there in the summer months. Also I could give you the number for Bear Tracker archery in Lafayette. Those are probably the closest other than Tracy for you in Redwood.

Thanks guys!

I'm pretty sure Saratoga and the one in Willmar are both private ranges right? Don't you have to become a memeber and pay a bunch of money? I would have no problem joining, aside from living so far away.

I'll check out that site and see what I can find.

Thanks again!

Saratoga is a great club, but beware if you go there, you are going to want to keep going back.

That's great!!! Sounds like Saratoge is the place.

I would be up for shooting anytime, so I'll keep ya posted.

Does anyone know the hours? I've tried to call them a few times and never even get an answering machine.

Actually there isn't a lot offered on their site as far as contact info. I had to do another search to get a phone number, and it didn't even connect me to the range, it was to some guy that couldn't even tell me if there was any type of open shooting. All he could tell me was it was members only, but wasn't really sure how it was all set up.

Doesn't appear to be the place afterall!

I'd have no problem becoming a member, except for the fact it's too far away for me to get my monies worth.

Looks like I'll have to pursue the place in Willmar, or else there is a place in Bird Island too, Renville Rangers Shooting Club. Anyone ever been there?

All I really want to do is get my bow tuned up and get some advice, being I'm 1 year into the sport now, I have more specific questions that I need answered. I plan on doing most of my target practice at home, but a time or two w/ a pro would be sweet!

      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!

      Nice bass Eyeguy. I can imagine that Northern was fun peeling out line and all on the yak lol.   Hit the miss on my way home.Was curious what was hanging out by a drain I often fished in the past.Found a few typical average sized bass and a sucker.Way to kill 15 minutes on my way home from work lmao.I love it

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.
