Archery and Knife Throwing

Partake in the ancient art of archery and go for the bullseye at our private range. It’s a great way to get outside and stimulate the mind by lining up that perfect shot. Right nearby is another cool activity, tomahawk and knife throwing! There’s nothing more satisfying than hitting the target with a well-timed throw and it’s the ideal opportunity for showing off your skills, or learning the ropes if it’s your first time. All of these activities and more can be bundled together in our Texas Dude Ranch Adventure Package for the ultimate day in the great outdoors.
