Benton Bowmen, Inc., is a non-profit archery club organized in 1949 with approximately 20 members to promote the sport of archery in the vicinity of Corvallis, Oregon. Since that time the club has grown in size and scope and now offers a variety of activities including a summer 3D shoot, year-round practice range, NFAA target round, two year-round 3D courses, indoor shooting from December through April, several members only events throughout the year, a hunter awards program, volunteer opportunities as well.

The Benton Bowmen Archery Club is an organization run by its member-volunteers. It is important that members contribute their time and skills where/when they can to assure that the club continues to offer recreational archery opportunities in our area.
