Dixie Bowmen Archery Club was founded in 1960, and chartered in 1961 as a field archery organization. The club has
been in continuous operation since the beginning. Several years ago we welcomed Virginia Traditional Bowhunters Association as an affiliate of Dixie Bowmen. Our range is
presently located on thirty-one wooded acres in Prince George County, Va. We have a diverse membership that includes modern compound archers as well as traditional archers.
Dixie holds 3-D archery shoots starting in January, and running thru May, and in August and September. We use mainly Rinehart and McKenzie 3-D targets,
set on a competitor and spectator friendly course. Targets are set at reasonable hunting distances and take into account the differences of equipment and skill levels.
Meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month. During the summer months, we normally hold the meetings at the range, (weather
permitting), with a short fun shoot being held before the meeting by those attending. We normally hold a traditional only shoot on Saturday, and an open for all classes on Sunday as
per our schedule.
During the late spring or early summer, we hold a Traditional Rendezvous over a two day weekend. We have among our
membership several bowyers who specialize in laminated recurves, as well as traditional selfbows. We also have some primitive archers who do flint knapping and make river reed
Please check out our web site, and contact one of the officers listed if you have any questions, or come visit us during one of
our shoots, and get to know us.
