Kern River Archers

ATTENTION: California Bowmen Hunters / State Archery Association Members,

FROM: The Kern River Archers, Lake Isabella, Ca.

WE HAVE LOST THE LEASE TO OUR RANGE!!

For over 30 years the Kern River Archers have had the opportunity to lease over 100 acres of Bureau of Land Management property located in the Kern River Valley through a cooperative agreement between BLM, The California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Kern River Archers. Parties involved have terminated our cooperative agreement causing the immediate cancellation of our lease and loss of access to the property for Archery purposes.

We are actively searching for a new location for the Kern River Archers to call home.

We would like to thank the members of CBH/SAA for their incredible support over the years at our Pow Wow, Bull of the Woods and High Sierra Shoots. We will notify CBH/SAA members once we have obtained new property and can host a tournament.

Thank you for your support!! We look forward to seeing you at our new facility.

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

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.
