Eugene IWLA

Eugene Chapter

The Eugene Chapter of the Izaak Walton League has worked to provide a safe and convenient place to practice shooting for local residents for over 50 years. We are a members only range and not open to the public. The chapter and members also participate in a wide variety of voluntary conservation efforts affecting our land and wildlife. We welcome newcomers to the chapter and encourage stewardship of the land.

Range is Open for all current members!

The range is open daily from 8:00AM to 7:00PM or sundown, whichever is earlier. The fourth Saturday of each month is range clean-up day. All or part of the range may be closed for repair, maintenance, or improvements. Eugene Chapter members are encouraged to volunteer for these activities and earn hours toward your work bond (which means you pay less for your Range Use Fee). Please remember to put a note with your name, the date, what you did, and the number of hours you spent, into the boxes in either pistol bay 3 or at the rifle range or by emailing whenever you do any work on the range so you can get credit for it!

If you have lost any items at the range, please check our Lost and Found tab to see if they have been recovered by anyone!

SplatMember Meeting! Saturday, November 25, 2023, 10:00 am.

This is 30 days notice of a member meeting to be held at the range for the purpose of voting on a few important issues. The meeting will be held at the range, in the picnic shelter, on Saturday, November 25 at 10 am, so please take the weather into account when you come! This is also range work party day so maybe you could help out a bit while we are at it! The voting will be by paper ballot.

Following are the issues to be voted on:

1. Do you wish to amend the Constitution to permit voting via email or other electronic means with proper notice of time and procedure? This would mean voting may be done without a physical meeting.
Yes [ ] No [ ].

2. Do you approve amending the Constitution and or By-Laws as needed to permit an increase in the size of the Board of Directors (BOD)?
Yes [ ] No [ ]

3. Do you approve increasing the prescribed number of BOD members from 14 to 21?
Yes [ ] No [ ]

4. Should the prescribed number of BOD members required for a quorum be increased and based on one-third the number of permitted BOD members? This will also change By-Laws Article 2, Section 4, and Article 5. Section 3.
Yes [ ] No [ ]

Increasing the BOD from 14 to 21 requires increasing the number of directors from 5 to 12. This will require altering the Constitution Article VIII Section 2. Where it is stated “five (5)” directors this will change to “Twelve (12)” directors. In the term of office portion of Section 2, “five” directors will be changed to “twelve” directors.

We hope to see you at the range! The meeting should be relatively brief.

Jeremy Brown, President, for the Board of Directors

We do NOT rent out firearms to anyone. Please make sure you bring your own firearms unless you are attending an event that says firearms are provided!

Please pick up after yourself after shooting! This means, take down your targets, clean up any garbage, and pick up your spent shells!

Lead Harvesters! Protecting the environment is one of the main precepts of the Izaak Walton League of America. Harvesting lead from the range is one of the ways the Eugene Chapter adheres to this ideal. We report the amount that has been harvested to the DEQ to show that we are serious about keeping our land clean. If you are harvesting lead from the Range, please let us know! Please email at We would love to find out how much you have harvested! That information will be used in a report we do for the DEQ, but your name will not be used. Thanks for helping us make our environment better!

Remember, for every hour you work at the Range, you get $10.00 off your Range Use Fee at the next renewal (Workbond credit)! Don't forget to put a note into one of the boxes in either pistol bay 3 or at the rifle range or by emailing whenever you do any work on the range. Please include your name, the date, the number of hours you worked, and what you did for that time to make sure you get your credit for it.

Please remember that during Board authorized events, the portion of the range that is being used for that event is closed for shooting to nonparticipants.

Range Safety information is in our Range Manual (must have Adobe Acrobat).
