Air Gun Steel Silhouette Target Range

There are now 44 individual - 3/16 inch thick steel air gun / pellet gun targets now installed along the north side (on your left as walk the trail to the east) on the 3D archery course. All of the targets are either painted neon green, orange, yellow or red. All targets are hung from a 12 inch spike nailed to either the side of a tree or on the face of a tree facing the shooter. Height of targets are anywhere from ankle to waist high. Every station has at least 2 targets, but some stations have 5. The archery course has a “general” shooting lane cleared for archers and the air gun targets can be shot from the same yardage marker stakes with targets being on the right or left side of the shooting lane. From the “white” shooting position stake, targets vary in distance from 15 yards to 50 yards. As with the 3D archery, shooters need to sign in at the range desk. Monitors need to inform shooters that they are limited to air guns only (no rimfire or centerfire guns allowed). Caller of pellet / air gun need to be lower than .25 caliber. There will be no fee to shoot this course.
