The FCA has two archery practice ranges to practise and sight in your bow before venturing onto our 3D archery course. Each range consists of Warthog targets placed at various distances. Arrows are easily pulled from these backstops. Only field points are allowed on the practice ranges and 3D course. Broadheads may be shot at the broadhead pit and if you supply your own target.
Maximum arrow speed on the 3D archery course cannot exceed 300 FPS (feet per second) We provide a safe and healthy environment for all our members and encourage families to join with their children.
Our traditional (longbow and recurve bow) archery range is next to the pavilion and picnic tables. No compound bows are allowed on this range. There are several bow racks and four shooting lanes. The Warthog range targets are placed at various distances: 10 yards, 18 yards and 26 yards.
The main target range is adjacent to the clubhouse area and can be used by all archers (longbow, recurve bow, compound bow and crossbow). There are five shooting lanes starting at 20 yards. The Warthog range targets are placed in 10 yard increments to 60 yards. At this time, crossbow shooters need to bring their own targets.
Our professionally designed 3D course winds through the woods with shooting lanes for fifty Rinehart targets set along a well-maintained path. The targets vary in distance and size, including bears, deer, sheep, goats and varmints. We also have a few exotic targets like an alligator, cobra, velociraptor and even one called the Hogzilla. For archers wanting to test their long-range accuracy we have a 100 yard target. The course takes approximately two hours to complete.
If you are new to the sport of tomahawk and knife throwing, we have a wall of tomahawk targets for your throwing enjoyment.
Because of their weight, axes are not permitted.
Our clubhouse has a fireplace, kitchen and BBQ’s that are always full of propane. This is also where we hold our Executive meetings and Annual General Meeting.
There are three washrooms (outhouses): two are located between the front gate and the clubhouse. The third one is located in the forest, halfway through the 3D course.
