The Range

Occupying about 45 acres, Oranco Bowmen Archery Club is a NFAA certified 5-star range. This is the highest certification given by NFAA. It is the only range in Southern California with practice butts from 10-80 yards in 5-yard increments. If you need a place to "dial in" your bow, this is it!  Oranco also has two NFAA roving courses: Our Valley Course is a level 28-target course, consisting of 14 animal and 14 hunter paper targets. For those who desire a bit more of a physical challenge, our Mountain Course is a hilly 28-target course offering 14 Field targets and another set of 14 animal paper targets.  The Layout changes occasionally.  Range Map

Oranco hosts 6 major shoots each year. Including 4 one arrow unmarked yardage 3-D tournaments, 1 mainly 3-D with three hand painted paper targets two arrow marked yardage shoot, and 1 two arrow marked yardage paper stump shoot.

The 3-D's are 42 target, unmarked yardage with one arrow shot at life-size foam animal targets. The marked yardage 3D shoot is named the Tomahawk, is done in an Indian theme and is designed to be as challenging as the Safari or the Silver Dollar to the top spot shooters.

We have plenty of camping room if you want to come out Saturday and stay the night before any shoot.

Oranco also hosts the popular "Scalps &Skins" mini 3-D's with 24 targets and the Club Champ Shoot and more! Oranco is proud to have been a host site for the 2016 CBH State Field Championships.
