Archery season is over but there's no reason to stop shooting your bow. A new archery range is now open at the Escalante State Wildlife Area west of Delta.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife range is free and open to the public every day. The eight hay-bale targets are spread out to allow archers to shoot from various distances and angles.
"Whether you're an experienced bow hunter or a novice just learning, it's important to practice with your bow as much as possible," said Carl Nilson, an avid bow hunter and the property technician at the state wildlife area. "It takes a lot of skill to hunt competently with a bow. This range will give people a convenient place to practice."
To get to the range from downtown Delta, turn west on 5th Street, also known as G Road, and go 5.2 miles to the wildlife area. The entrance to the range is on the north side of the road and the parking lot is clearly marked. Access to the range is by foot through the gate.
