Since it's birth in 1988, Cottonwood Archery Club has grown from a handful of dedicated archers with a dream, to a legitimate club supporting well over 70 members to date, and we are growing all the time. Anyone interested in archery whether you are into target shooting or an avid bowhunter, beginner or a seasoned shooter, traditionalist or shoot the latest compound bow with all the bells and whistles, Cottonwood just may be for you.
Our club is very youth oriented. After all, the young people of today are the future of bowhunting and all shooting sports. Some of our members are archery instructors with 4-H Shooting Sports. Others are certified Bowhunter Ed. instructors. While others just want to help a kid get started. Cottonwoood members have stepped up year after year to instruct the archery section at the annual DU Greenwing Day, and Pheasants forever Youth Mentor Hunt, for the Hastings area Chapters.
Our outdoor events are held at Prairie Lake Archery Range. This facility sits on approx. 17 acres of Little Blue NRD ground. The NRD does a top notch job of maintaining the course while Cottonwood does it’s part in maintaining target butts and the shooting towers. There are restrooms and an outdoor shelter, plenty of parking space, 2 shooting towers and a walk out platform set up on a course the will accommodate a 24 target 3D shoot.
