SALEM, Ore.—It’s even easier to practice the ancient sport of archery in Oregon. ODFW recently opened two new public archery ranges: one in Hillsboro at the Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus and another in Junction City next to ODFW’s fishing pond.

The department also recently added an elevated shooting platform at its EE Wilson Wildlife Area range near Corvallis.

The range in Hillsboro was developed in partnership with the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District with help from the Black Rose Traditional Archers. It’s located at 17705 NW Springville Road (at PCC’s Rock Creek campus complex) and includes 10 targets from 10 yards to 60 yards. The range is free to use and open to everyone, though people need to bring their own archery equipment. Parking may be limited without a PCC parking pass.

The second range is the Junction City Archery Park located at 92430 Hwy 99N, right next to ODFW’s popular fishing pond. This is a family-friendly range which includes a youth range with eight targets and another general target range with 16 targets. All shooting lines are covered, so practice in rain or shine. There is also a large covered area to accommodate groups. The range is free to use and open to everyone, though people need to bring their own archery equipment.

Finally, ODFW recently completed an elevated shooting platform at its EE Wilson Archery Park to help bowhunters practice simulated treestand shots. Archers who want to use the platform need to bring their own appropriate safety harness and can clip to one of three straps/cables available. Thanks to Oregon Wildlife, Oregon Bowhunters, Traditional Archers of Oregon, Oregon Hunters Association and Archer’s Afield for help developing this new feature.
