Blue Ridge Bowhunters Archery Club
Leicester, North Carolina, USA
Located just 20 minutes north of Asheville,
NC, the Blue Ridge
Bowhunters Archery Club is dedicated to promoting field archery,
3-D archery, and bow hunting.
We have one of the largest club memberships in the state of North Carolina,
and are proud to offer opportunities for archers of all ages, from the
novice to the professional, to practice, compete, and enjoy camaraderie
with other archery enthusiasts.
All of our activities are
Safety and fair play are paramount.
We firmly believe that passing on these traditional skills to our children and grandchildren is the only way to ensure that our sport remains viable in the future.
While many of our members shoot the finest and
most advanced compound bows,
our club also includes a large number of traditional archers. If you are interested in
any aspect of archery, you will find someone in our club who speaks your language.
Crossbows, however, are not allowed on the property
of Blue Ridge Bowhunters at any time!
We regret that we are unable to offer formal archery lessons. If you are interested in archery but do not know where or how to begin, we invite you to contact a club officer with your questions, or to attend one of our shoot events. Better yet, consider joining our club so that you are eligible to come out every Thursday evening (during Daylight Savings Time) and shoot all you want on the club property. There are always lots of members on hand who will be happy to offer suggestions and encouragement, and afterwards we eat dinner at the clubhouse!
