Cherokee Rod and Gun Club invite you and your family to experience the excitement of our Archery range.

The lower range has static targets that range from 20 to 50 yards.  In the future, a complete range equipped with Rinehart 3-D Targets set in a unique hunting environment, with easy walking trails, with lanes that will help you test your distance measuring skills. In the meantime, the lower archery field is available to test out your bows as you prepare for bow hunting season or just shoot for fun!

Cherokee Rod and Gun Club shooting lanes are set for competitive and recreational shooters regardless of the Archery Association you may belong, or just for weekend entertainment for the entire family. In addition, being a family-orientated club, we strongly encourage youth and ladies to join in the fellowship!

Beginner and intermediate classes are available.  Contact Coach Jenny Dutton to get scheduled. Visit the Cherokee Rod and Gun Club Calendar for posted lesson dates and other Archery related events.
