Little Crow Archers of Willmar is an organization dedicated to promoting the sport of archery and bow hunting. Our indoor archery range is home to some of the finest shooters in the state and many state record holders. We are here to help the novice or advanced archer improve their shooting abilities. Our facilities (indoor and outdoor) are made available to many youth organizations for teaching the basics of archery and to let them shoot just for fun. For the kids just beginning, we can even provide youth bows for them to use while at the range. We also have several NASP (National Archery in Schools Program) Certified level 1 & level 2 instructors. We have updated our indoor range with new lighting and Spyderweb bales, in addition; our club has expanded our inventory of Rinehart® 3-D animal targets and redesigned our outdoor range.
