The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) is pleased to announce the addition of a new archery range open to the public at the TWRA Region I Office complex, located at Lake Graham in Jackson, TN.

"We are pleased about the construction of this new range," stated Brian Thompson, TWRA Region I Hunter Education Coordinator. "The targets for the range were purchased through grant money provided by the Archery Trade Association. The range consists of stationary targets at ranges from 10 yards to 50 yards, plus a woodland walk-through course with five 3-D stations with deer and turkey targets."

Jeff Bailey, TWRA Lake Graham Manger and Bow Hunter Education Instructor said, "Our future plans include expanding the walk-through range to include elevated stations to simulate shooting from a tree stand and the addition of targets for the use of hunting arrows with broadheads."

The Lake Graham archery range is open free to the public, but archers must sign-in at the lake's concessionaire's office. Range hours are the same as the hours for fishing. All types of bows are legal to use on the range, but arrows are limited to field points only, at this time.
