August is packed with some really exciting events that you don't want to miss!

August 8th - Southern Bank Back To School Tournament - this is our annual tournament for all students.  This will be an individual tournament.  Winners will receive the latest Under Armor backpacks full of school supplies.  There will also be drawings for school supplies.  Cost is $20 per shooter.

August 15th - Zachary "Kern" Lillard Memorial Trap Tournament-  We are honored to be able to host this event put on by the Lyon College Trap Team.  This is a 2 round event.  Shooters will be flighted after the first round.  Prizes will be given for the top 3 individuals in both flights.  There will also be several raffles to raise money for the Zachary Kern Lillard Scholarship Fund.  $75 per person to enter, which includes your lunch, provided by Hawgs.  Come out and support a great cause.  Flyer is attached.  Please pre-register by email, fax, or phone by Wednesday, August 12th.  We are expecting a lot of shooters so register early.

August 21st - ATA Big 50

August 26th -  ITS BACK!!  The 2nd Annual, Angle Porting, MOCK DOVE FIELD.  We had hundreds of rounds shot during last year's Dove Field.  For those who haven't heard of this, we turn field 5 into a mock dove field.  Birds fly from the high house, low house and wobble trap house, and you never know where its coming from.....just like a real Dove Field.  Beside the hay bales and corn stalks, we are also adding another mobile target thrower that will add an angled bird flying across the field...just in case it wasn't hard enough for you last year!!!  We're going to give prizes for the best scores turned in on the Dove Field this year.  So shoot straight and often.  It will run for 2 weeks leading up to Dove Season.

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 5-person 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. 

During December and January we open Sunday 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. WEATHER PERMITTING.

If you want us to notify you about weather-related closings and upcoming events, send us an email and we'll be glad to add you to our mailing list.
