Archery Ranges?

Recommended Posts

Leff

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!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.

      Starting a new thread for 2018 Pike River Hatchery progress. No new news today. Cliff

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.

      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck

      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
