The term 3D archery generally refers to shooting at 3 dimensional life-like targets made from self-healing foam in field situations which would mimic real life hunting experiences.
Early use of the targets was primarily for bowhunting practice but over time, shooting clubs began setting up courses to challenge hunters which led to more competitive venues, leading into what we know today as 3D archery.
Most early targets where made to resemble deer but today, manufacturers like Rinehart and Mackenzie make all kinds of animals in various sizes – from skunks to giraffes and everything in-between including dinosaurs and aliens!
The CVA 3D Range is under new management and has been updated with new shooting lanes and targets. The CVA 3D Range is slated for a total of 30 targets and covers an area of approximately 9 acres.
Targets include deer, wild boar, Javelina, bear, turkey, raccoon, coyote, and bobcat. In addition to these targets, we have recently completed a simulated 'pond' area along with a wooden dock, where archers can shoot at aquatic themed targets including a carp, frogs, a giant mosquito, and 9 foot alligator.
NOTE: This shooting area is for CVA Members only.
