Wilson Archery Range

Salem, OR -(Ammoland.com)- Archers and bow hunters of all skill levels are welcome at ODFW’s new E.E. Wilson Archery Park at EE Wilson Wildlife Area (29555 Camp Adair Road, Monmouth), which is now open to the public.

The new Archery Park offers a five-target range for beginners that can accommodate up to 10 shooters. There is also an eight-target general range for up to 16 shooters at a time.

The Archery Park is open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. Using the range is free, though visitors need to have a wildlife area parking permit and bring their own archery equipment. Parking permits are free with the purchase of an annual Oregon hunting license or $7 daily/$22 annually. Permits need to be purchased online or at a license sales agent prior to visiting the archery range.

Organizations may also be able to reserve the archery range for special events. Contact E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area for more information.

The E.E. Wilson Archery Park was built using grant funds from the federal Wildlife Restoration Program, which collects excise taxes on the purchase of firearms, ammunition and archery equipment. It then distributes these funds to states for programs that improve wildlife habitat, support wildlife management, promote hunting and recreational shooting or teach hunter education.

The range perimeter fence was built by volunteers from the Oregon Hunter Association’s Capitol Chapter.

“Archery is fun and growing in popularity,” says Chris Willard, ODFW recruitment and retention coordinator. “This new public range in the mid-Willamette Valley will provide recreational archers and bowhunters a place to work on their skills.”
