Club History

The Deertrack archery range was formed in 1948 by Mrs. Abby Roberts, the eldest child of John M. Longyear. Mrs. Roberts had the course professionally designed for her daughter Mary who was actively involved in archery at the time. Due to the foresight of Mrs. Roberts and her family, many generations of Marquette area archers have been able to enjoy a “world class” range. The club holds the lease to the land indefinitely as long as it is operated as an archery range. Since inception the club has carried on a mission of promoting the enjoyment of archery and a tradition of outdoor sportsmanship. Club membership has included over 150 families and individuals of all ages, shooting styles, and skill levels. The club is a non-profit volunteer community service organization. Operating expenses are funded by membership fees and proceeds from club sponsored shoots.
