Change to WNYFAB outdoor shoots this year!
WNYFAB has decided to try something different this year. The WNYFAB Federation outdoor shoots this year will be only be 14 targets counted for score. Along with this a new "Hunter Division" has been added. 50 yard maximum distance, unisex, and no equipment equipment restrictions. This will shorten the time required to shoot the event and hopefully appeal to shoots who may not wanted to shoot the longer field distances. If you have not shot field archery before this new format and class could give you a good look at what it is all about. Come on out and give it a try!
Field Archery at Its Best
Rochester Bow Hunters (RBH) started in 1952 by local sportsman to provide an area to practice and enjoy the sport of archery. Their first property was a leased piece of land on the Barge Canal. A field course was laid out and in 1953 club officers where elected. Through the early years the club evolved and joined other archery clubs to form the Five Nations. In 1960 RBH became a non-profit corporation allowing the club to purchase, in 1967, the present home of RBH. The club held many shoots and continues to hold Field shoots on a regular schedule. The course is laid out in a wooded area of the property, we have 28 targets set out from 80 yds down to 20 ft. With the break up of the Five Nations RBH has joined the Western NY Field Archers and Bowhunters. This gives members of RBH more shooting opportunities and better competition against Archers of the Buffalo and Niagara Falls areas. Our membership fees are modest. Join us for the fun and come improve your skills as well.
Rochester Bow Hunters is a non-profit Archery Club
Rochester Bow Hunters (RBH) is a non-profit archery club and while RBH has been around since 1952 we were not incorporated until 1960. This was done so RBH club could purchase the property we now own. The land was purchased in 1967 and is 20+ acres. The field course is set in the wooded area of the property, with two full 14 target ranges. Future plans and hopes are for more tournaments to be held at our club.
