CITY OWNED SHOOTING AND ARCHERY RANGE OFFICAILLY OPEN

The City of Clovis is excited to announce the opening of the Clovis Wing-Shooting Complex and Archery Range at Ned Houk Park, located at 726 C R 17. Doors officially opened on Thursday, October 6 at 9 a.m. This newly constructed multi-faceted facility includes four trap/skeet overlay fields, a 12-station sporting clays course, indoor and outdoor archery ranges, an indoor air-gun range, and a multipurpose building for hunter education and other activities.

The Sporting Complex is constructed on city owned land and developed by the City of Clovis through partnership with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, utilizing funds from the Wildlife Restoration Fund administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The range is structured to provide a safe, supervised facility for the patrons of the High Plains region.

“The City of Clovis would like to thank New Mexico Game and Fish and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service Wildlife Restoration Fund for their funding support with this exciting project for our area,” advised Clovis Mayor Mike Morris.

The new shooting facility will also serve as a place for hunter education students to continue to develop firearm safety skills, archery students to practice what they learn in the classroom, and hunters to sight in their hunting equipment.

The range, which will be managed by the City of Clovis, will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will be varying fees to use the range.

Fees are set as follows:

  • $50 for 100 sporting clay targets or $25 for 50 targets
  • $8 for a round of trap or skeet
  • $15 per day for use of the air gun or archery ranges
