Starting in December, through the last day of January, we will be closed for the winter.  We will, however, be open on Sundays from 1 pm till dusk if weather permits. 

We are so very excited about everything we have planned for the 2015 shooting season!  We're going to have more tournaments and events than every before, which means more shooting and more fun for all ages!

February is right around the corner, so I wanted to go ahead and give everyone the event schedule for the next 60 days so that you can plan accordingly.

  • February 13th -  ATA Big 50 - this is not a tournament, but allows ATA shooters to get a jump start on registered targets.

When originally opened, The Paul H "Rocky" Willmuth Shooting Sports Complex featured a 1200 square foot clubhouse, three skeet and four trap fields as well as archery fields.  We also offered two pavilions with grilling facilities.

In 2013-2014, we added a new 1200 square foot education center, a fifth trap field, and an additional pavilion. Visit our photo page to share the pride that we feel.  

We thank our sponsors:

for making this complex possible.  

The range is operated by a commission appointed by Independence County and City of Batesville officials. The range is open to the public during designated hours, but Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program participants are given priority on the range.
