THE GREY MOUNTAIN RANGE

Course Layout

Whitehorse Archery is fortunate to have use of the Biathlon Yukon course on Grey Mountain for shooting in the summer. The course consists of two loops: Short Loop and the Hunter's or Long Loop. This year, the Short Loop is set up with 21 targets to facilitate those people with limited time. The targets are set up to tournament standards and feature a variety of sizes and degrees of difficulty from easy to moderate. There are three sets of stakes on  the Short Loop: pink for kids and beginners, white for recurve, and green for compound or advanced shooters. This loop can easlly be shot in under an hour with two people shooting one or two arrows each. 

    

The Hunter's Loop consists of an additional 23 targets. These feature predominantly game animals with shots ranging from moderate to difficult. Sheep Canyon is one of our favourites! This loop on its own takes about a 1:15. 

We have just completely rearranged the course so check the map below. 

For safety sake, please shoot the targets in numerical order on the Short Loop. You can shoot the Hunter's Loop in reverse but please be aware of shooters coming counterclockwise.
