Oranco Bowmen is a private, not for profit, Archery Club. No one gets paid for their time. We need volunteers to
help maintain the range and keep it Safe, Attractive and Operational. This is why our volunteers are so important. Keeping about 45 acres safe and clean is a big job, but with the help of our members, we can keep Oranco the nicest range in Southern California.
Work parties are held on the Saturday prior our major shoots. If you would like to get Work Party announcments, make sure to get on our email list. Sign up here
Occupying about 45 acres, Oranco Bowmen Archery Club is a NFAA certified
5-star range. This is the highest certification given by NFAA. It is
the only range in Southern California with practice butts from 10-80
yards in 5-yard increments. If you need a place to "dial in" your bow,
this is it! Oranco also has two NFAA roving courses: Our Valley
Course is a level 28-target course, consisting of 14 animal and 14 hunter
paper targets. For those who desire a bit more of a physical challenge,
our Mountain Course is a hilly 28-target course offering 14 Field targets
and another set of 14 animal paper targets. The Layout changes
occasionally. Range Map

The 3-D's are 42 target, unmarked yardage with one arrow shot at
life-size foam animal targets. The marked yardage 3D shoot is named the
Tomahawk, is done in an Indian theme and is designed to be as challenging
as the Safari or the Silver Dollar to the top spot shooters.

We have plenty of camping room if you want to come out Saturday and
stay the night before any shoot.

targets and the Club Champ Shoot and more! Oranco is proud to have
