Yes! We encourage everyone interested in conservation, hunting, fishing, archery and wildlife education to purchase a VWF membership - this club is active in this community and provides youth education events and training programs such as sponsorships to Narrow Lake Camp and youth archery/coaching events. We are also affiliated with the Alberta Fish and Game Association (AFGA), so part of your purchase goes directly to protection and stewardship of our lands. We have for purchase both regular memberships and range memberships (see membership page for more details). We sell a limited amount of Range key memberships each year and you must have a key to shoot on the outdoor range during a non VWF sponsored event. Range restrictions will apply and be aware of firing lines.
If the flag is up it means someone else is engaged in shooting process. They could be on the firing line or down range checking targets. Check with the other shooters and identify the range officer before proceeding to set up your position.
The VWF Archery program has been restarted. Archery classes are taking place on wednesday evenings at the VWF clubhouse in downtown Vegreville! Call Jamie Lowes @ (780) 208-7900 for more information.
The rifle ranges can be used simultaneously. The rifle ranges cannot be used when trap shooting is in progress and vica-sersa, only one layout can be used at a time.
We are in the process of getting a thursday night pistol group together at this time. The first session will be June 9, 2022. For more information contact us at email@example.com or call Jon Borstel @ 780 632-9906.
