Windy Meads Archery Hunt and Novelty Shoot

Sunday April 10th, 2022
Davis, California

Fair weather is returning! Grab your bow and join us under the trees of Yolo County’s premier forest for our annual Hunt and Novelty Shoot!

Life-size 3-D foam animals sheltering under the trees await your arrows. Watch out for that 9-foot grizzly! Can you hit the enemy fighters popping up from behind the barricade or that giant red dragon flying across the field? Targets suitable for beginners to champions will be in the mix. Youth and novice archers are encouraged to join in the fun and some loaner gear will be available.

No compound bows (SCA rules) or crossbows (Club rules).

Not interested in shooting? Join us anyway and work on your project under the trees.

Archery lessons and loaner equipment are available at the Cynagua archery practice held at Yolo Bowmen Club the 2nd and 4th Sundays each month at 1 PM. Email for info.

Please bring your own lunch – picnic tables are available.

Online maps have been unreliable — like miles off — do not use them unless you want to see miles of backroads that do not include the site!.
Take I-80 to Davis. Exit at Mace Blvd. Proceed south on Mace 4 miles. Mace becomes County Road 104. At Tremont Road, turn left into the parking lot of The Yolo Grasslands Park.
If manually entering the address use the Grasslands Regional Park address: "Mace Blvd & Tremont Rd, Davis, CA 95618". The listed address for Yolo Bowmen when entered will take you half a mile south of the site.
