Friends of Punderson Archery Stationary Range
The Stationary Archery Range and Archery Walking Trail are located opposite the Marina. Both are open to the public and are free. There are 14 stations on the walking trail. Each presents a challenge to the shooter both on distance and elevation changes. Doug is pictured here on the stationary targets. Geauga Bowmen’s Archery Club Friends of Punderson member Mike Ballash plans several events throughout the year. Check the Events page for any Friends of Punderson upcoming events. PLEASE be aware that this range is active throughout the daylight hours. Be safe, keep your eyes and ears open. Be aware of your surroundings and observe hunter safety while on the range and walking trails (Broadheads not permitted).
The Geauga Bowman’s Archery Club hosts a variety of “shoots” throughout the year. “The Great Ohio Squirrel Hunt”, the “Northern Ohio Bow Fishing Tournament”, and the “Pre-Season Warm-ups” at the Punderson State Park Archery Range and Walking Trail, just to name a few. Then there is the “Game Dinner” in the fall where you get to have what you shoot, or their signature event for over 50 years, the “Annual African Safari”. They also have Archery Demos at The Geauga County Fair and the Friends of Punderson Fall Festival, both in early October. Feel free to visit the Geauga Bowmen’s Archery Club for more detailed information.
