.Boasting a 5 star NFAA rating, you won't find a nicer, club owned, piece of property for an archery range around. Located near Dunlap, the range consists of 60 separate target butts spread across 38 acres. Target distances range from 2 to 101 yds and both field and novelty shoots are held. The range also offers 60 separate broadhead pits and 3-D targets to hone your shooting skills. Nestled amongst the oaks, at an elevation of 1800 ft., the range offers an escape from the winter fog. In the spring, the hillsides explode with wildflowers making the short trip up Highway 180  a therapeutic escape from the stresses below. The FFA range has a large clubhouse facility with a fireplace and heater, a full kitchen, restroom facilities with hot showers and an indoor shooting block. Plenty of camping space and RV hookups are available for members if they choose to spend a night or two at the range. Individuals pay $35 and families $50.00 a year  in dues which gives them full access to all the above amenities.
The Fresno Field Archers  was reorganized from the Fresno Target Archery Club around 1956. The club moved from Pine Lake Lodge, near Roeding Park, to Millerton Lake in that same year. The first Fresno Safari was held in 1956 at the Millerton range. In 1958 the club leased property,with an option to buy in Dunlap and held it's first Safari there that same year. The members exercised their purchase option  and the property was paid off in 5 years, Dunlap became our permanent home. The Fresno Safari is one of the nation's longest running outdoor archery tournaments and has attracted some of the world's top shooters. In the early eighties, the Safari drew close to a 1000 shooters! Along with Safari the club also hosts the Gene Foster Traditional Rendezvous.  The Rendezvous draws traditional archers, bow makers, arrow makers, flint knappers and leather workers from around the state to try their hand at unmarked yardage 3-D targets, pop-ups, balloon shoots and speed rounds.
