Develop or enhance public archery ranges through DNR grant

4 posts in this topic

This is a really cool program!  I'm skeptical I could get matching funds for the program, but it would sure be cool to add an archery range to our community.

Having a near by outdoor range is awesome.  The one that is near my house in St. Paul gets a lot of use by a very diverse group of people.  I see dads with their kids, teenage girls, groups of high school boys, guys up to 70 years old, and everything in between.  

I've been especially impressed with the groups of high school boys that I've run into. I've shown up when it was just me and one of those groups at the range.  When I showed up they were playing music pretty loudly and goofing off and normally you'd think aw man I've got to deal with these guys while I'm trying to get in some range time.  But instead the minute I walked in they stopped messing around and got back to shooting and apologized for the music and were going to turn it off.  I stopped them and told them to crank the music back up and have a good time as long as it doesn't bother anyone else that shows up.  Not often any more that you have a group of teenage boys show proper consideration for those around them.   

Having these ranges and giving these younger guys and girls a free place to shoot within the city is important.  Without access to the ranges these kids are off doing something else and the sport suffers.

The outdoor range I go to could use some new targets as some are getting pretty well worn.  Hopefully the city that maintains it looks into these funds and takes advantage.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size?   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
