Blue Ridge Bowhunters Archery Club
Leicester, North Carolina, USA
Located just 20 minutes north of beautiful
downtown 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 talks 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 dinner is available at the clubhouse!

The Blue Ridge Bowhunters club was shocked and saddened by the passing of long-time member Michael Rice on 6 November 2013. Mike was always cheerful, quick with a compliment on a good shot, ready to help with club chores, thoughtful, kind, and modest...a better man you will never meet in this life. He was an excellent shot with his longbow, and was an avid bowhunter and fisherman. His ever-present smile and that well-worn camo shirt he seemed to wear to every club event will be sorely missed.
The Blue Ridge Bowhunters wish to express
our deepest sympathies to Mike's family, coworkers, and friends.
Please consider joining us to provide support for Mike's wife by attending
our Michael Rice Memorial Open shoot, to be held at the club property on
March 29 and 30, 2014.
