About Waukegan Bowmen

The Waukegan Bowmen Archery Club was incorporated in 1948.  The club had its beginnings with archery minded individuals in the Waukegan area.  Eventually, the club secured property in Bristol, WI and built its beautiful facilities.  There are 2 outdoor ranges, an outdoor practice range, a clubhouse, and an indoor range.  The main purpose of the club is to promote ethical bowhunting, community fellowship, and good sportsmanship.


Waukegan Bowmen is a club governed by a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Corresponding Secretary and Range Captains.


The Club meets on the first Wednesday of every month.
