Features:

The Elm Fork Shooting Complex offers multiple shooting sports (pistol, rifle, shotgun, and ARCHERY) in one convenient location. The archery range is isolated on the northwest end away from most gun ranges, a sporting clays course is adjacent – so there is gun noise. This is a flood plain, sometimes swampy, with open and forested undeveloped land. Wear appropriate clothing and insect preparation. Most of our areas have gravel walk paths, but be on watch for poison ivy, snakes and critters. Form Wall, Instruction Range, and Practice Range are well groomed. The  3D range is currently closed.

 

The Elm Fork outdoor archery range is operated by Texans Archery Club

NOTE:  The TAC range at Elm Fork is open to members Wednesday thru Sunday, roughly daylight hours.
