Does your child want to train in archery skills and stealth with our Rangers Guild? We have several options to train year round and take your child's accuracy, form, and technique to the next level.
A Year of Archery Training
Join the ranks of the Archery Rangers! This apprenticeship program takes youth and teens on a journey through the many worlds of archery. We train with the traditional wood bow of our Rangers Guild and also use modern laminate, recurve, compound, longbow, and more.
Apprentices attend a training field-day one monthly Saturday from September to May. They spend time in our Guild Hall crafting their kit and get time at the range with expert mentors in archery. Check out the class schedule below.
Become part of an elite team immersed in the following studies:
Accuracy and Form Our craft includes target archery in our indoor range and at local outdoor ranges. We loose arrows from a line and 3D ranges, along with a traditional woodland styles, such as from a knee, crouched in a bush, or on the move.
The Bow and the Arrow Your bow and your arrow become an extension of the self. Experience the care and respect that comes with the discipline and philosophy that encompasses being an Archery Ranger.
Stealth Archery Learn wilderness camouflage, invisibility, and the flow of the forest in order to stealthily move within it. Glean the forest and its inhabitants as our hunter ancestors once did.
TrackersCraft At Trackers we teach many types of forest craft. As an Archery Ranger, these skills include how to harvest and make your own bow, arrows, and even bowstrings. Other crafts learned in this apprenticeship may include basic knife use, fire creation, feather processing and care, quiver making, and natural cordage.
