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!

Eugene IWLA Board is needs a Secretary! If you are interested, please attend the next Board Meeting on September 27, 6:30 pm to discuss your interest with the board. If you have any questions, please email

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!

IWL Ladies Steel Matches will start up again Sunday, April 24, 2022! All skill levels welcome. $20 fee. Early arrival to help set up is appreciated. New shooters should be there by 8:30 for new shooter orientation.
