Archery the art or sport of shooting arrows with a bow that can be enjoyed by anyone as it does not require great strength or extreme physical fitness.
Franklin County Archers focuses on providing an inclusive family atmosphere that caters for everyone no matter how young or old.
At Franklin County Archers we cover a number of disciplines; Target Archery with both indoors and outdoors locations as well as Field Archery courses, which sometimes includes 3D archery targets.
Franklin County Archers outdoor location has a large practice area and currently two marked field courses for both target shooters and hunters, giving a realistic experience surrounding in a beautiful natural bush setting.
We are also affiliated with the New Zealand Field Archery Association and Auckland District Archery and the club is used as a venue for several competitions throughout the year and also participates in interclub series with other clubs situated in the region.
Several of our members are keen hunters who like to get out as often as possible to put their target archery practice to use in challenging bowhunting environments. There are also organised club hunts throughout the year and an in-house competition annually for game claimed.
