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!

CLUB  NEWS ITEMS (updated 04/15/14)

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Mike Rice Memorial Shoot.  The weather was truly awful on Saturday (and a grand total of 2 shooters braved the elements), but on Sunday 37 folks shot the course, enjoyed some food, and helped us raise a total of $500 for Mike's wife.  Thanks to all club members who helped make this a successful and meaningful event. 

Thursday afternoon "3D and Dinner" started on April 3 with a good turnout of new and old members.  Shooting 'til dark, dinner on Ken's porch, laughter, and tall tales means that these are occasions not to be missed.  We'll meet every Thursday afternoon after 4 PM from now until Daylight Savings ends.  Come on out and join in the fun! 

Blue Ridge Bowhunters is now on Facebook!
Many members and guests use Facebook for connecting and sharing information, so Blue Ridge Bowhunters now has a page.  It is a closed page, meaning that you can see the page but you cannot see posts or photos unless you ask to join and are approved by an administrator.  We hope that this additional source of information will be an asset to the members and guests of our club, and will allow easier sharing of news, photos, and other items of interest, so come on over and join in the discussion on FB.

Don't forget that 2014 CLUB DUES are now overdue.  See Cecil with your dues as soon as possible!  Remember that you can join at the base rate of $20 (without NCBA perks) or join both Blue Ridge and NCBA for $40 (which provides life and accident insurance).
