Season’s greetings Oranco members

Wishing all of you a happy holiday season,

I would like to thank everyone that came out on Wednesday evening and took part in our flint round league. It was a great 4-week league this winter. We had a great turnout of shooters. I want to thank Jim Teel and Mark Houston for helping with setting up every week. We held our league under lights and used the educational area for this league. If you missed out on this one. We may be doing it again before spring. Our next 3-D league will be sometime in January so stay tuned for upcoming dates and time.

As we near the end of this year I want to thank everyone from our board members to our club members for making this year a great success with all of our events that we held this year. I won’t try to mention everyone that has helped to make Oranco successful but you all know how hard those that take part with our club and its events. So please thank them and let them know how much you appreciate their hard work.

A few more things to remember the indoor State championships will be held in January so get signed up. Also please remember that our gate code will be changing on January 1st.

Thank you all.

Oranco Bowmen Archery Range

Occupying about 45 acres, Oranco Bowmen Archery Club is a NFAA certified 5-star range. This is the highest certification given by NFAA. We are the only range in Southern California with practice butts from 10-80 yards in 5-yard increments. If you need a place to "dial in" your bow, this is it! 

Oranco also has two NFAA roving courses: Our Valley Course is a level 28-target course, consisting of 14 animal and 14 hunter paper targets. For those who desire a bit more of a physical challenge, our Mountain Course is a hilly 28-target course offering 14 Field targets and another set of 14 animal paper targets. The Layout changes occasionally.

Oranco is not responsible for lost or stolen belongings.

Please remember to lock your vehicles when you are not present and always take your equipment home with you. We have received reports about stolen equipment, and want everyone to understand that you alone are responsible for your belongings. We advise you to put your identification information on your belongings and try not to leave anything unattended.

Remember: We are open to the public on Sundays and during shoots. During these events it is much more difficult to track who is on range property, especially if people do not sign in at the office.

Be safe and responsible everyone.
 Announcements 

Range Beautification Party: We would greatly appreciate your help and support to the upcoming Work Parties. Keep an eye out for the email blast. All Club Members and their families are invited. Per Joe Dotterer, Club President there will be an “ALL YOU CAN EAT LUNCH” served for ALL of our Volunteers who come out and help.

Your assistance ensures that the Oranco Bowmen Archery Club remains the best in Southern California. There is a reason why people travel from all over California to shoot at our Archery Club. Get involved and help us out.  
 
Cook Shack Workers Needed: Positions are still available for volunteers to help out during the upcoming shoots. Tony Tobinis back and will be taking over Cook Shack Assignments effective immediately. Terry Lopez will no longer be accepting calls for Cook Shack volunteers.

Please contact Tony Tobin in order to reserve your spot at: Cell# (626) 354-2268. Due to poor cell service in his area please contact him via TEXT message to assure he can receive your information. First Come, First Served.  

Target Camping: This is NOT Allowed...Period. Your Membership will be terminated for doing this! The Practice Butts are for sighting in, improving your archery skills, and honing your accuracy. The Roving Range is just that, Roving. Shoot 4 arrows, Score them, then move on to the next target. 

You have been warned. Don't do it. It is not worth it. 

Explaining Deer Antler Abnormalities

Antler characteristics such as droptines and double main beams generate a lot of conversation, but where do they come from?

Deer hunting in the late season can be feast or famine. It’s no easy task to fill your deer tag at this time of year. Knowing where and when to sit will require a hunter to do his or her homework. 
In particular, it’ll come down to 3 major elements to make it happen. Here’s a look at 3 keys to late season deer hunting from our friends at the National Deer Association (NDA).
