What Skill Level is Required?
Our ranges and shoots are for archers of all skill levels. The only requirement is that all archers follow best practices and take all safety precautions. The primary goal is for you to have fun and gain confidence in your shooting abilities!

You do not have to be a member however there are benefits to becoming a member such as discounted rates for archery shoots hosted by Sonoma County Bowmen as well as discounts on archery lessons. Being a member helps the club maintain and purchase high quality targets for everyone to enjoy.
Why are membership Fees increasing?
The Sonoma County Bowmen Board has voted to eliminate the required maintenance fee, although we still appreciate those who would like to continue to volunteer, and are increasing our annual dues to to cover the eliminated fee.

What does the last chance broadhead shoot pay for?
The Last Chance Broadhead Shoot is the largest shoot in Sonoma County that fully benefits SCB. West Coast Archery Shop donates all of the proceeds from this event to SCB. The proceeds from this event are dedicated to purchasing 3D targets and replacing inserts for everyone to enjoy!
Where can I buy equipment?
West Coast Archery Shop in Petaluma is one of SCB’s biggest supporters. They have employees whose expertise are both in hunting and target archery. They have a wide range of equipment and a 20 yard indoor range.
