Recommended Posts

That's funny, I was just told by a Chanhassen/Carver County person that there were no archery ranges in Chanhassen.

There is a nice one located on Lexington Ave. about a mile north of Hwy 694.
About a dozen lanes, a few of them are 40 yards. Don’t forget to bring the bug-spray!
It’s right behind the old Twin Cities Arsenal, too bad they don’t open that up for a special permit bow-hunt!

Cabin Fever in Victoria has a nice 20-yard range indoors and 40 yard outside.

There is one right off the parkway between Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet too.

Rapids archery in Coon Rapids is the best place I have been to by far! They have many targets at different distances as well as stands to shoot from at different distances... your shooting at deer & bear and so on.... it's nice and since I can't post their HSOforum, I'll try and be creative... try rapidsarchery. either org or com and see what you find.

It is open for a special archery hunt, but it's youth only.


There is a range at Keller Park north of Lake Phalen.(Hwy 61)

There is also a range in Bunker Hills Park.

Tarten Park in Lake Elmo, but you may have to be a member to walk the range, but I think the practice lanes are open to the public. There is also sod butts available for broadheads.

There is also indoor ranges at Bwana & Compound Doc.

Just remembered a couple more, Lake Elmo Park reserve, and Oakdale Gun Club has a few butts never shot my bow at either.

I think thats it.

Another vote for the Rapids/Bunker Hills park archery range. It's in the Bunker Hills park in Coon Rapids off Hansen Blvd. There's one field range and three hunting ranges. rapidsarchery.org is the web site for the club.

Yeah, I read in the regs-book that it was open for a youth hunt. Unfortunately, that would exclude me.

Some of the ranges that are being listed do charge a fee. We should also include that information as well. Although I am not sure of the cost I know that Bwana & Compound Dr. charge for lane time and I believe that you have to be a member of the Oakdale Gun Club in order to shoot or you are limited to “public hours”.

The outdoor range in Chanhassen located by Lake Susan was closed for the year because they were doing some work back there. I work right next to the park and I was going to teach someone how to shoot a bow this year at this spot... oh well. There is also an archery range in Plymouth, at least there was 2 years ago so I don't know if it's still there. It was in the park across from Lifetime sports center. The range was not setup well since they staggered the shooting positions and not the targets so from time to time people would be shooting at 20 yards and another at 50 yards!!! I have my own range now that I can shoot out to 100 yards on so I have not shot any other ranges recently.

There is a really nice one on the Rosemount and Inver Grove Heights border. It's at the Spring Lake park preserve.

They have about 30 or so targets. 5 yards to 70 yards. Stands to shoot from also. There are deer, bear, turkey, elk, and antelope targets. Really sweet course.

Take HWY 52 south to Pine Bend Rd. Take left. Follow dirt road until you see the signs.

Eats, have you been to the one in Elm Creek Park lately? They have a whole bunch of that place closed off and are tearing up the roads, etc. I drove back there and it looked like the archery range was torn up too.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
