Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a member to visit?

You do not need to be a member of Anne Arundel Archers to utilize the practice targets. The first 5 targets on the left as soon as you enter the range are open to the public, 7 days a week, from sunrise until sunset. There will usually be a few friendly faces around to help get you started.

The practice targets are closed during work parties (clean up), or tournaments. We have that information posted on Facebook when we do have those events. Join our Facebook page for those updates.

What can I shoot?

Anne Arundel Archers range allows many kinds of bows, however please note that the following items are not permitted:

  • Broadheads
  • Wooden Arrows
  • Crossbows

All guests and members must adhere to this guideline. Broadheads, wooden arrows, and crossbow arrows ruin our target butts, and it is very costly to replace them (which we have to do manually.) Those whom are found out of compliance with the above will be asked to leave the range.

What should I bring?

If you are coming to our range for the first time, you will likely find plenty of folks around to help you get situated. If you are coming to the county classes, practice, or a tournament for the first time, a few helpful items to consider are below:

  • Bug spray – Our entire range is in a forested area, so there are many critters and insects around. Bring bug spray to protect yourself.
  • Sunscreen – If you are going to be out for a long time, it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen, as areas of our range are not completely covered.
  • Closed-toed shoes – There are many roots and rocks and things to trip on around the range, so wearing stable, closed-toed shoes is highly recommended.
  • Water – Our range does have restroom facilities, but there are no vending machines or access to food/water. Please bring whatever you will need for your visit.
