Rib Mountain Bowmen

The Rib Mountain Bowmen was founded in 1953, making it one of the oldest archery clubs in northern Wisconsin. Over the years the club has undergone several face lifts and expansion projects, including a new clubhouse being built in 1987. In 2008 RMB purchased an additional 20 acres giving us a total of 40 acres of lush wooded property.

Today we offer an 18 station, 20 yard indoor range. We also have a 10-70 yard outdoor field-tip range and a 20- 50 yard outdoor broadhead range, as well as a scenic 28 station walking broadhead course in the woods. This course is used for both 3D and silhouette shooting.

RMB is a supporter of several archery and non-archery related organizations in the state. Wisconsin Bow Hunters Association, Wisconsin Traditional Archers, Whitetails Unlimited, Wisconsin Waterfowl Association, Boy Scouts of America, and National Wild Turkey Federation to name a few. The club is a huge advocate for youth and getting youth involved in the outdoors. RMB offers the NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) and works with and supports our area schools also offering the NASP program.
