Sligo Sportsman & Archery Club is a local club made up of 45 members and is located at 1081 Elder Road, Sligo, PA 16255. The club was established in 1949. The club hosts a 10 week 3D archery shoot that usually starts in March, running through September. With COVID this year, slight adjustments have been made to their regular schedule.
The first shoot was on August 16th with one to follow on September 6. Registration is from 7AM to 1PM. Each shoot has 30 targets with 6 divisions: mens, womens, youth, senior, competition and traditional. Targets are anything ranging from deer, turkeys, raccoons, and even exotic animals. Their course is set up in maintained paths that give you a nice walk through just a part of the 120 acre property that is free for members to utilize in hunting season. The 3D shoots are open to non-members for the rate of $10 for adults, $5 for ages 12 to 16 and free for anyone under 12. Members get $1 off the shoots. Score cards are given when you register and you can earn a free shoot for the best score in your class.
The club also has their two day 30th Annual Bow Hunters Rendezvous scheduled for September 19th & 20th. Registration fees and times are the same as their regular shoots. Club members will be setting this course up as a Hunter’s set up with novelty shoots at the clubhouse.
The club offers burgers, hot dogs, drinks and more available to purchase at each shoot.
The club also has 2 ponds on the property that are stocked with fish for members to use. They offer use of their 300 yard rifle range and the 20 yard indoor archery range. The club offers an Indoor Archery League each January. Multiple classes are offered depending on the interest for men, women, youth and traditional shooters.
The club is always ready to welcome new members. Member fees are $20 to start with a renewal fee of $15. Their current president is Carter Henry.
