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!

New Member Orientation is held monthly on the 4th Saturday (same day as Maintenance Day); Please see our Calendar for any additonal updates. The next New Member Orientation will be May 27, 2023.

Please be at the Range no later than 8 am to fill out paperwork and pay your fees. Please make sure you bring either cash or a check since we do NOT take credit/debit cards! After you pass through the gate, please turn left towards the Picnic Shelter and park anywhere in that area or along the uphill road.

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).
