Archery/Trapshooting



                                                                           

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is the partner/coordinator of the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) "On Target For Life".  This nationally acclaimed youth archery program implements a curriculum-based archery education program into the public/private school system through the physical education department.  The NASP has been successfully introduced in 40+ states. Illinois was one of the first 10 states registered in the program.
The IDNR is hosting a statewide tournament for schools enrolled in the NASP. This annual tournament is in the spring of each year.  Please contact Joe Robinson at joe.robinson@illinois.gov  or 217-785-8060 for information concerning the tournament.




The World Shooting and Recreational Complex has the longest trap line in the world with 120 trap fields outfitted with a voice activated release system extending over 3.5 miles. Twenty-four are combination trap/skeet fields with 16 of those fields equipped with lights for shooting after dark. The WSRC is the home grounds for the Amateur Trapshooting Association’s Grand American Trapshooting Championships.


The following DNR facilities offer hand trap ranges for clay target practice and archery ranges for bow and arrow practice, please call the site for additional information:
