Dustin and his support team, Ryele, Josh and Steph,...his family, taking a lunch break in the sun in front of the new project.
Amongst the work needing to be done, was clearing some trees to make room for a parking lot. Future fencing will distinguish the private drive to their rental home. To rent this 3 bdrm. country home, call 1-715-762-8526.
After a thorough cleaning, the painting, shellacing, rewiring, building new walls, putting safety glass windows in, building a bar and waiting counters, tables and stools, redoing the floors, and more and more, work had to be done to prepare for opening the doors to the public. The bar/waiting area turned out beautiful. This is the area the guys and gals can wait for their turn to shoot at the targets with their bow and arrows or just sit and relax with friends over a pizza and beverage while watching the other shooters or the outdoor sports programs.
The first official membership was sold, and the fun begins.
The range is supplied with 3D targets as well as 9-spot targets. You cannot see him, but there is a full sized average black bear target standing between the first two boxes. There will be more targets to come and the finishing touches on the range are still in motion. There are also tree stand shooting areas that will be in place soon so the shooters can shoot from an actual tree stand vantage point.
This is what the Northern Archery shooting range is all about. Practice, practice, practice from different distances until all is perfected. All are welcome. Bring your own bow equipment and have a go at it.
8 a.m.- 8 p.m.- Mon.-Fri.
9 a.m.- 4 p.m.- Sat.
Closed on Sun.
This has turned out to be a fun project for me and Bill to get a bit involved in too. We are so proud of the beautiful place that Dustin and his partner, Carl, have made for this outdoor sports community to enjoy. So, if you are ever in the north central Wisconsin area, stop in. They are easy to find just 2 1/2 miles East of Park Falls right on State Hwy 182 as you round the first corner. They would love to see you.
This has turned into a bit of free advertising but that's o.k. I am anxious to see how this all materializes on the business end of things. During this time of stressed economy, it is especially difficult to get a new business to thrive. It's scary. The boys are anxious, cautious, excited, all at the same time. They decided when they started this project, that, if all else fails, they will have one heck of a nice cabin. Now, that's the attitude. Dusty has always been the positive one and believes that you will never know until you ' try,' whether or not something will succeed. We Wish them all of our Best. Thanks for listening.
