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 family-friendly.
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!

The ever-popular weekly gatherings for the 2017 season are still going strong despite the wet weather.  Come out to Ken's place Thursdays, starting around 4 PM, for shooting, socializing, and then dinner on the porch.  It's always a pot-luck dinner, featuring Ken's famous grilled hot dogs and whatever yummy dishes Ms. Nancy has whipped up, plus whatever others bring along.  Bring your bow, your appetite, and your best hunting stories every Thursday for this great time of fun and fellowship.  Totally family friendly with no foul language (other than the occasional turkey call), no alcohol, and no crossbows permitted on the property. 
Check the maps link below to get directions.  First-timers and those interested in
 joining are very welcomed and encouraged to attend.  Officers and members will be
 available to show you around,  answer your questions, and discuss the benefits of membership.
