Where to shoot?

11 posts in this topic

I just got a bow and now need to shoot it, looking for a place around the Prior lake-Savage area. Any help would be great.

Thanks

in shakopee, as you head across the river to 212, there is a outdoor range to your left as you cross the river. I beleive you have to go through the boat landing and under the bridge in your vehicle to access that area....looks like they have 8 0r 9 stations

yes it is free. it is thanks to a wildlife trustfund. i believe it used to be an old ball park or something like that. nice setting, lots of room, big targets. they even have sod set out to practice your broadheads. they even have a target out to 100 yards, if ya feel like losing an arrow mad

The "Ponds Park" in PL had a small archery range last year by the baseball diamonds, and I do mean small, if I remember correctly it was like 3 stations. Park by the baseball diamonds and it was like a 500 foot walk.

There is a small range on France avenue as you are coming into Bloomington as well. Not quite to the Normandal Campus. It will be on your right side as you are coming up France Ave towards Bloomington.

Troy if you bring it to work with you there is a cool little outdoor range there in EP. It is open air but has walls and 10 to I think 40yds. I have never ran into anyone there either always had the place to myself.

if its the one in starring park or something like that, it is a nice one. however, for me it is a 20 minute drive, at least, and i've gone there a few times to find it was closed for the evening for kids archery classes. bummer for me, but great for them!

The one in Shakopee sounds a lot nicer, but there is also a small outdoor FREE range in chaska in the park on the opposite side of the pond fron the Fireman's park.

There is a place to shoot in Savage off of Glendale. I think the park is called Hidden Valley. It's not nearly as nice as the EP range but it's a place to shoot. They have a couple hay bails and I think you have enough room to shoot up to 40. There's also a range behind the dodge dealership off of 35W and Cliff road. I think that one has 5 stations and you can shoot up to 60 I believe.

I now this would be a bit of a drive for you. But one of the best bow shooting facilities I've ever been a part of. Coon Rapids Archery club. Check out there web page see for your self. If you ever golfed before then you will love there walk around ranges. Just like a game of gulf. Take some friends make a day of it. Pick-nick table for lunch and all the shooting you can do. Only $3.00 for the day. You will have your choice of four different areas to shoot at. A lot of great people shoot there.

Have some fun.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
