At Fairfield County F&GPA archery has become a very active venue. So active in fact that we have built a multi level platform stand for practice by our bow hunters. In addition we now host one of the finest shooting pavilions in the state of Connecticut. Our shooting range has target butts for field use starting at 20 yards out to 50 yards. Every summer we host a league open to the public one evening per week. Any level of archer is welcomed and encouraged to join the fun. A grill is available for those who wish to bring their dinner and eat in the pavilion. Our range is lighted and fully powered. Even if you are a new shooter and have never shot before, fellow archers will welcome you and offer their expertise. (Acceptance of this so called expertise is optional.)
