The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has completed construction on a new public archery range at the R. Wayne Bailey-Caswell Shooting Range. The new archery range, located at 3670 N.C. 86 South in Yanceyville, opened to the public on Aug. 30.

Now that construction is complete, the site features a roaming course with 10 separate 3D targets and two ADA-accessible sighting lanes with bag and 3D targets, with an ADA-accessible parking lot. The project was funded using Pittman-Robertson funds and license sales receipts.

“This new archery range is free for the public to use,” said Myers Mast, a landscape architect with the Commission. “It provides a great opportunity for people to practice honing their archery skills in a realistic, wooded environment.”

The range is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The range will be closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, state holidays and during special permit hunts.
