Elkhorn Archers Today...

In 2009, the club wanted to be more involved with the youth of Baker County. In conjunction with the Baker County YHEC group, the Elkhorn Archers invited the YHEC group to shoot them during their Thursday night practice shoots. It was so well accepted that in 2010 the Elkhorn Archers took it one step further and offered an organized supervised instructional group setting just for kids. In 2010, this project was chaired by Creg Talbot with help from many of the club members. It has been a resounding success (See pictures)

The group continues to host the annual Father's Day Shoot at the Washington Gulch range, as well as one of the Co-host's of Eastern Oregon Supper Shoot in August. The Eastern Oregon Super Shoot hosts as many as 300 participants from all over the West. It is a 2 day affair and is held annually at Anthony Lake Ski resort. This is an family event that many make part of the annual summer "must do's". There is no other competitive event that takes place in a more beautiful setting.

In 2009, the Elkhorn Archery Club, in a effort to be more visible in the community purchased their own storage for targets and equipment. Thanks to many of the local businesses, their names and company logos are presented on the sides. This trailer is entered in all the local parades, as wells driven in the community to not only promote our sponsors, but to show the Elkhorn Archers commitment to their community.

Goals for the future, are as always:

  • To be true to our primary mission statement.
  • To continue to grow the youth program.
  • To continue to be more visible in our community
  • To pusue establishing a program similar to "Archery in the Schools" program (sponsored by Mathews Archery Company).
  • To continue to grow and promote safe, ethical bow hunting and archery practices.
