Welcome to the Athabasca Gun Club information Web Page

One of the best priced memberships in Alberta and two locations for your shooting enjoyment.










2021 Range Memberships are required to use ranges.

Annual General Meeting is cancelled due to covid-19

Current executive positions will remain in place until further notice and the ability to conduct executive meetings resumes.


Athabasca Gun Club Range is now open dealing with COVID-19. THIS IS NOT A JOKE AND IT'S NOT OVER.

The Range will open under these rules:



These rules are NO JOKE. Break them and you are done for good. Membership cancelled no refund.

If you are not able to get on the range stay in your vehicle away from others.


Sign up waiting sheets on the large posts just inside each range Bring a pen.


Bring your own sanitizing materials.

If you cannot get into the range call Steve at 780-689-0724 or text me Jim 780-499-1017

Do not shoot before 10:00 am any day. Neighborly courtesy and good will people have quiet time too.


New Barrel Limiters have been installed on the rifle range, use them or loose opportunity to shoot here as I will cancel your membership. If you don't want to use them I will pro rata refund your membership so you can shoot elsewhere.


We are happy to advise that the cost of a Senior lifetime membership has been reduced from $750 to $500

Hopefully this helps some of our seniors consider the lifetime membership.


New Barrel Limiters have been installed on the rifle range.

They are there to assist in over shooting the backstop. If we do not use them we risk having the range shut down.

So instead of yanking out all of the tubes why not give them a chance, they are PCV so they will not rust or damage your firearm. The only thing left to do if people do not assist wit this is to close the range except when certified range officers can be on duty. This will severely limit the hours of the range. 

You are all range officers in spirit to the range, if you see activities and know that should not be going on then say something or call range management. If you don't then you are part of the problem and not part of the solution. 





Although we have extended the rifle range hours to 8:30 during the summer months we ask that you be courteous to the neighbors and cease shooting at sundown.

The sound carries much farther during the winter months when there are no leaves on the trees.

After May 1, of the year extended shooting 

hours will contine to 8:30 daily.











New range hours in effect.

In order to keep our neighbors happy and give them some quiet time the new range hours are:

Winter hours - Oct. 1 to Mar. 31 - 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM


Apr. 1 to Oct. 31 - 10:00 AM to 8:30 PM

We have New and Improved Range Signs














Over the last summer season many range improvements have 

been made for your shooting enjoyment.








*All new rifle range shooting bench tops and seats with routed edges and finished with epoxy paint.

*New target stands at 50 yard sight in, 100 and 200 yard targets. Cor-plast which is like plastic 

cardboard has been used as it does not shatter when hit by bullets and is lighter than plywood.

*I have provided vinyl target patches in Black and white so a person can cover holes in the cor-plast and on their 

targets at no charge to the range as well as push pins located on both the rifle and pistol range.

* Brooms and Dustpans have been supplied on both Ranges for cleaning up range brass.

* Pails for collection of range brass have been provided to keep brass out of the garbage.

* Squib / Fail to fire disposal bins have been provided to increase safety.














* 25 plus Metal targets of different sizes have been fabricated for the pistol range to be shot at with

.22 rifles or handguns only.  We will repaint the targets when we are there but it is best to bring your

own white paint. Canadian Tire sells cheap paint for $2.49 per can.

New top rails have been manufactured out of Metal to resist bullet impacts of pistols and 

small caliber rifles. Please as the signs indicate no high power rifles on this range.

Addition of Archery Target Area

A large stack of hay bales with hanging conveyor belts behind them can now be used for Archery,

it is faced away from the main clubhouse and is at 25 yards. All a person needs to do is bring their

own archery bag and hang it from the steel cables places across the front of the target area.




Rifle & Pistol Range

Range directions for both the Trap and Rifle & Pistol Ranges.

Here is a map showing the location of both the outdoor rifle and pistol range ( turn and head west at the A & W across from the health centre and at 

3km the road curves to the left. At the end of the road turn left and you are at the gate to the range. The Andy Wood Trap Range is east of town and 

then turn south on Hwy 827, we are about 1.5 km down you will see the range building and the Andrew Wood Sign at the gate. 

We also have our safety rules here and in our program guide.  Click on the picture to read a larger version and to download if desired. The Athabasca Gun

Rifle Range

The Rifle range has backstops at 25, 50, 100 and 200 yards to let you set your rifle to your preferred distance.

(Click on any picture to enlarge)

 When you turn north at the A & W on Hwy 55 drive 2.9 Km and you will see this corner, go to the left.     




The Rifle range has a Covered shooting area in the event of  rain or snow and 7 shooting    stations.

Targets can be set up at standard distances of 15, 25, 50, 100 and 200 yard distances to get you tunes in   for the average hunting or target shot.

Pistol Range

 The pistol range has many shooting positions and gives you target stops at 15 and 25 yards. 


Having old carpet down on the ground really makes finding and picking your fired brass much easier.


Both ranges are usable approximately 7 to 8 months per year depending on weather. Having covered shooting areas is great if we get an afternoon shower and if need be you can always go into the clubhouse area.

Andrew Wood Trap & Skeet Range 

The trap range is a great locations with 4 different trap houses and 5 shooting positions for each house. A true please to shoot at with voice activated clay throwers. The facility has a clubhouse, covered shooters area and recreational parking area with power available for visitors at club shoots.


Here is the range clubhouse and our sign at the front gate on the highway as you drive by. You can't miss us.


Here is  trap house "1" with 5 shooting stations, a highway view &  a cross view of all 4 trap houses and positions.

Annual Fun Shoot information








Come out and enjoy the challenge of trap shooting. You can meet some of the local trap shooters and make some new friends.

A wise trap shooter once told me "Clay Pigeons are not hard to hit... they're just easier to miss."

He was right but if you don't try you will never know if your a natural,  or like most of us could   use a few tips from the guys who have been doing this for a while.

Come on out even if you would like to watch and cheer on your friends or family member. Fun for all in this friendly competition.
