K“Keep practicing," he told her.
"Until I get it right?" she said. But he corrected her.
"No. Until you don't get it wrong.”
― John Flanagan, The Royal Ranger

Our love of archery:

Why do we love archery? Why do other people love golf? Honestly, why do other people like golf... you have this ball, and a club, and you loose all your balls, you keep buying more expensive clubs and equipment, and you do really well one day and another day you swear you are going to quit and never do it again because everything went wrong. It's basically the same.

Man do we love archery though! When it isn't deer season, you can find us participating in Traditional Bowhunters of Texas (TBOT) matches all over Texas, in the Texas State Longbow Championship, and just up the street at the Sherwood Forest Fair's Royal Archery Open and Longbow Competition.

Hosted Archery Tournaments

We are honored to host several amazing archery tournaments during the year.

In April we host the IBO Traditional Texas State Championship. You can read all about the International Bowhunting Organization in the linked website. For more information on the championship event please visit the Facebook page we have setup for the IBO Traditional Texas State Championship.

In May we are very honored to continue the nearly 40 year tradition of the Texas Stick Bow Roundup, aka "The Chester Shoot." This competition among traditional archers in Texas was historically held in Chester Texas for 36 years, and in 2019 Valkyrie Ranch asked to take over the competition rather than have it end. This is a major charity event benefiting cancer research. We are proud to continue this tradition and continue supporting this charity work.

Tickets for Archery Tournaments

Valkyrie Ranch runs its own event ticketing system. You can find tickets to our archery tournaments on this page as early as three months before the events. Payment is processed by PayPal.

Archery Instruction and Clinics:

The ranch is home to several Level 2 Archery Instructors. In addition, we host several clinics throughout the year that are taught by wold champion archers. You will almost always find a clinic being held during a major archery tournament at Valkyrie Ranch.
