About Arrowhead Archery:

Arrowhead Archery features a 125’ x 15’ covered shooting shed with traditional targets spaced at distances between 20 yards and 100 yards for participants of all skill levels.

Arrowhead Archery’s  3-D Range takes the archery range into the woods, introduces unique angles, and creates new ways to have fun with a bow. We provide three-dimensional animal targets that challenge archers at each station. The targets range from small skunks to bears and are set along a course that meanders through a dense pine forest. 

Each target helps create a different shooting scenario. You might shoot downhill at a deer target, and then walk a few steps to shoot at a hog in a thicket. The shots try to mimic the countless scenarios bowhunters could face in the field.

3-D archery isn’t just for hunters. It’s exciting for any archer because no two shots are the same, and it’s meant to be played with a group of archers. If you are interested in the 3-D range, please make sure to call ahead to see the availability of the targets. 

Arrowhead Archery Programs:

Arrowhead Archery is located at 194 Soccer Row on the southeast corner of the soccer side of Traceway Park near the offices of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Arrowhead Archery is a cooperative effort between the city of Clinton, Mississippi College, Clinton Public Schools, and CCA to build two archery ranges – a covered outdoor archery range and a 3D archery range.

Arrowhead Archery hopes the range will be a place for novices and experts alike to enjoy the rapidly growing sport. Archery as a sport is growing exponentially in the USA. The number of Americans participating in archery stood at 21.6 million just a few years ago.

Parks and Recreation officials are working with the Director of Archery at the Mississippi High School Activities Association to provide opportunities for youth in the Metro Jackson area.  In just over three years, archery in Mississippi Schools has grown to over 8,000 students participating in archery from the 5th grade to the 12th grade.
