A Bit About Us



Membership at Deep River Bowmen has an annual fee of $100 plus a ONE time $100 initiation fee.  Junior memberships are available for those under 21 at a reduced price.  

What is included:

  • Membership covers you, your spouse, and children under 18, on a gated property with a combination lock for safety, security, and privacy.

  • Unlimited access to the regulation indoor range with 19 shooting lanes, kitchen, and indoor plumbing.  

  • Unlimited use of the scenic outdoor ranges

    • A 10-80 yard marked practice area​

    • A designated practice area composed of 3D targets that is broadhead friendly

    • A 20+ target course along a trail that winds throughout the hilly, forested property.  There are 3 elevated platforms and 2 permanent ground blinds to offer a little challenge.


We offer 2 indoor and 2 outdoor shooting leagues each year.  As well various public shoots throughout the year.

  • Mixed '300' league shoots on Wednesday nights at 7pm

  • Indoor public shoots are hosted on Saturday evenings January through April.


  • Outdoor public shoots begin in March with our infamous "Cabin Fever Shoot" while outdoor league begins in May.

  • Public shoots are the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from March through September. 

  • Cost is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. 



Being a member of Deep River Bowmen does come with a few expectations.  Member participation is key to the success of this organization.  There are various activities in which members are urged to participate:

  • On the 1st Tuesday of every month, there are membership meetings that make your voice heard.  All decisions regarding the club are made at these meetings.  

  • Because DRB is a non-profit organization, and operate on a tight budget, we must do virtually all repairs, grounds maintenance, and renovations ourselves.  Therefore, before scheduled shoots, there are "work parties" in which members get together and do whatever maintenance is necessary to prepare for that shoot.

  • During the summer months, Deep River Bowmen also hosts free youth shoots in various Porter County Parks.  Participation is needed to help load targets, set up, and assist with instruction.   

  • The best way to support this club (and definitely the most fun), is by coming out and participating in the various shoots throughout the year.
