New England’s Premier Archery Club
New England’s premier archery club, Algonquin Archers is located on 25 wooded acres in Woodbury, CT since 1957. Our facilities offer a 10 lane 20 yard indoor range, an outdoor practice range from 10 to 60 yards, a broadhead practice butt, a long range practice butt out to 90M, a full 14 station Field Course, and a 30 station 3D course. There are elevated platforms on the course that simulate shooting from a treestand.
Algonquin Archers is a private club, members have full access to everything on the property and are allowed to bring guests on a limited basis. We are not open to the general public, except when advertised public tournaments are being held. You can email us through the contact page anytime if you are interested in applying for a membership.
We support a diversified group of archers ranging from Nationally competitive archers, hardcore bowhunters, traditional enthusiasts, and everything in between. We are Chartered members of the IBO, the NFAA and the CAA. We sponsor an After School Archery Program as well as a JOAD (Junior Olympic Archery Development) program for local youth archers. Family participation encouraged.

As hunting season approaches we are asking members to donate game for the annual Game Dinner which will be early in 2019
We are always looking for venison, but we also use just about any other type of wild meat, fish or fowl. The bone must be removed. Each package must be labeled with your name and type of meat. We also need deer ribs, this is often overlooked when paying someone to process your deer, you must request that they save the ribs for you. Please call Bob Bruno and arrange for delivery/ pick up. Bob will also process the deer if need be. A deer MUST be field dressed. We understand that some members don't know how to butcher an animal, or maybe even skin or de-bone it, that is why we offer this pick up service. Another option is to bring the animal to Bob's house, and get some hands on instruction if you want to learn about processing your game.
Do not hesitate to call Bob, at any reasonable time of day, to schedule a pick up or delivery. Bob Bruno: 203-720-2124; 860-250-2556 cell firstname.lastname@example.org

*BE ALERT----SAFETY FIRST
As an archery club, we are very fortunate to have an Indoor Range and 3 outdoor courses on our property: 3-D, Field, and Knock-a-Block. All members need to remember that multiple archers, can be on any of the courses, at any given time.
** SAFETY ALWAYS COMES FIRST
Also, for your awareness, you may see hunters on the property. Do not be alarmed, as these are club members that have permission to bow hunt deer and turkey.
Have fun, Stay Alert, and be aware of other shooters at all times.
