Beekman Ridge Archery offers a 3D range with over 40 targets. Featuring blinds, tree stands, and water shots. While you roam along the mile and a half of natural setting trails you will encounter elk, deer, bear, mountain goats and maybe even Bigfoot. All targets have three different shot lengths, one each for compound bows, traditional bows and of course youth shots. They offer two separate courses so there is never a crowd. And when you are done with the shooting they give you an opportunity to stay and fish in their private ponds and perhaps stay over to enjoy the beautiful mountains for the night.
Large groups are welcome but should make reservations, concessions are available through the Butte Falls Cafe. The range is open and available without reservations every weekend and Tuesday through Thursday it is available with reservations.
To find the Beekman Ridge Archery range just head north on Hwy 62 until you get to Butte Falls Hwy , go 15 miles toward Butte Falls and turn right at the sign (just before the first cattle guard) and then follow the sign on into the range. The address is 15580 Butte Falls Highway.
Prices are quite reasonable at $10.00 for the Bigfoot Range and $15.00 for the Grizzly Range or you can shoot both for only $20.00. For more information and reservations call 541-865-3651 or 541-601-4784.
