Rules for Scouting Area Use
Hunting on the grounds
DBCL offers turkey and deer hunting on the club grounds to members. An application and fee is required and the slots are selected by lottery.
For more information contact Dan Joel, Hunt Chairman.
Daniel Boone Conservation League is well known for its fantastic rifle and handgun ranges, training activities and competitions. In addition, given the extensive growth in archery hunting popularity, it also has developed extensive field tip archery practice facilities for year round shooting by club members.
As you drive into the DBCL grounds on your right are stations with at least two Pacific Bow Butt targets each at 20, 30, 40 and 50 yards. These two targets include one for crossbow and one for all other bow styles. This area is open all year round.
Indoor shooting is possible all year round, as well, facilitated using video equipment that can be used any time with training verification. A Paper target league is held from October through March with a maximum distance of 20 yards in the club house basement.
Dispersed through the east section of our grounds are various Rinehart 3D targets set at distances between 13 and 80 yards with 3 elevated platforms. The 32 station league course runs from mid-April to mid- August across different topography and fauna. In addition there is a warmup area and long distance shooting lanes. Use of the course is free to members with a small league participation fee.
Contact the current Indoor and 3D archery chairmen listed in the Powderhorn, club monthly periodical, or website for current schedules.
100-200 yard Rifle Range
The 100-200 yard Rifle Range is the longest range at the facility. It features berms at various increments for steel targets and target carriers at 200 yards.
25-50 yard Rifle/Pistol Range
The 25-50 yard range is for short to medium range rifle and longer range pistol target shooting.
The pistol range features individually separated stations much like an indoor range with target carrier increments of 7, 10, and 12 yards.
The auxiliary range has both 50 yard and 100 yard shooting positions and also features the running deer target.
The club features five trap fields and one skeet field. Trap house 5 has a doubles machine.
The 3D archery range is a nice long walk through woods and fields with 25 3D targets setup at various ranges and positions to simulate hunting scenarios.
The Daniel Boone property has over 2.5 miles of hiking trails. Download: Trail map PDF file.
