Archery / Air Gun Range

The Archery / Air Gun Range is an approximately 3 acre facility built for the enjoyment of Pecan Plantation residents and their guests. Located at 10026 Ravenswood, next to the Shady Campgrounds RV Park, the range includes separate areas for archery and air gun target shooting. The archery area has target butts set from 10 to 50 yards as well as trails for various animal 3D targets. There is a shooting line cover with lights and fans. The air gun section has a covered area with shooting tables, gun rests and stools. Various types of paper and steel targets are set from 10 to 50 yards. There are also separate targets for BB guns. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult who is a PPOA member. All guests regardless of age must be accompanied by a PPOA member.

The range building, completed in 2016, has storage facilities for targets, a workshop, and storage for lawn and maintenance equipment. In 2017 bathroom facilities were completed. There is no cost to use the range, but residents are asked to complete the application process at the PAC and receive a copy of the rules. The Range is open for use 24/7 with some lighting for the targets.

The Pecan Plantation Archery / Air Gun Association (PPAA) is a separate organization whose membership is open to all PPOA members. PPAA dues are $25 per year per family, and dues are used for targets, equipment and for maintaining the facilities. Membership details of the PPAA can be found under the Club Information section of this website.
