 SAFETY REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES

1.  New archers must make themselves known to facility personnel for orientation on safety and field procedures.

2.  Listen carefully to commands given by MWR Staff / Range Safety Officer (RSO).
- “Clear to Fire” – you can nock the arrow at the firing line and shoot the target.
- “All Clear – Retrieve Your Arrows” – you can go down range and retrieve arrows.
- ANYONE can call “CEASE FIRE” or “HOLD” in an emergency.  DO NOT release an arrow.      Safely relax the bow arm and wait for additional commands.

3.  Do not retrieve anything in front of the shooting line (even if it is within reach) until you hear the ALL CLEAR command.

4.  Do not nock or draw an arrow unless you are at the shooting line and unless MWR Staff / RSO has given everyone the command CLEAR TO FIRE.

6.  Always use field points at this Archery Range.  Broadheads or Blunts are not allowed.

7.  Never approach the shooting line without inspecting your equipment for damage.

8.  Never run while retrieving your arrows; you could hurt yourself with an arrow lodged in the ground or fail to stop in time and hurt yourself with the arrows lodged in the target.

9.  Make sure no one is standing immediately behind you when pulling out an arrow from the target as you could accidentally hurt them when forcefully pulling the arrow out.

10.  If an arrow travels too far and lands behind the Arrow Stop, make sure MWR Staff / RSO / Other Shooters are aware of this before you retrieve the arrow as you may not be visible to others on the range.

12.  Do not shoot any arrows beyond the left and right limits.

Frequently Asked Questions
  Question Answer
 

What is Skeet Shooting?

Skeet Shooting is a recreational and competitive activity where participants, using shotguns, attempt to break clay targets mechanically flung into the air from two trap houses (high and low) at high speed from a variety of angles or eight (8) stations.

A round of skeet consists of 25 targets, with 17 shot as singles and 8 as doubles. The first miss is repeated immediately and is called an option. If no targets are missed during the round, the last or 25th target is shot at the last station, low house 8. The shooting sequence is as follows:

•Stations 1 and 2: High house single; Low house single; High house/Low house pair

•Stations 3, 4, and 5: High house single; Low house single

•Stations 6 and 7: High house single; Low house single; Low house/High house pair

•Station 8: High house single; Low house single

Skeet is shot in squads of up to five shooters. They move from station to station around the half moon, ending up in the center, at the end of the round.

 

What is Trap Shooting?

In Trap Shooting, the targets are launched from a single "bunker" or machine, generally away from the shooter.

 

What is Five Stand?

Five Stand is a shotgun sport played with 1 to 5 shooters with five linear stations. Each station has a menu of 5 targets, players shoot at 5 targets from the first station then rotate to the next stand, where they find a new menu of 5 targets. Shooter(s) will continue rotating until they have shot through all five stands. Best out of 25 targets shot wins.
