Bow Hunting

The Big Mac Bow Hunters promote the outdoor lifestyle of hunting and target shooting with primitive means.   We work to educate the youth of our areas with 4-H Shooting sports and Bow Hunter Education.  The club maintains two outdoor archery ranges one at Lake McConaughy and one in Ogallala they are open to the public 365 days a year. In January and February we hold archery leagues indoors at Grant, Nebraska.  With shooters meeting twice a week for 8 weeks. There is usually 7-10 shooters and they shoot a 5 spot target from 20 yards.  The shoot usually lasts 2-3 hours and is a good way to keep your archery skills sharp in the off season.  If you are interested in these leagues contact Dennis Dahlkoetter at (308) 352-4775 or Pat Aerni at (308) 289-0961.   In the spring and summer we host 3D Archery Shoots at the Burma Road Archery Range at Lake McConaughy.  There is usually 20-40 shooters and you can shoot from 20-80 yards.  This is a great way to get outdoors walk the trail and practice shooting various sized targets.    If interested in this club contact Shawn Riley at (308) 284-2988.
