Shooting Sports

Protecting opportunities for recreational shooting sports and hunting has long been part of the League’s mission. By partnering with government agencies, the shooting sports industry, and other conservation organizations, the League helps to maintain access and promote responsible use of shooting ranges on public lands.

Izaak Walton League chapters own and operate more than 100 shooting ranges across the country, including archery, rifle and pistol, skeet, sporting clays, and trap ranges. These facilities are also used for firearms safety training, hunter education courses, and youth shooting programs. Many of our chapter’s programs are endorsed by the National Rifle Association, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and the Amateur Trapshooting Association.

Contact your local chapter for class availability and schedules.
