With the start of the archery-only deer hunts only a few weeks away, the Ben Avery Shooting Facility (BASF) is seeing an uptick in the number of customers, particularly bowhunters, utilizing the archery range.
In order to provide a more convenient and enjoyable shooting experience, BASF is urging all customers to pay their $8 daily fee online at https://bookben.azgfd.com/ before visiting the facility. BASF will not accept payment at the OneAZ Credit Union Pavilion, located near the archery range.
The archery range is open from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Archers will still be able to deposit their daily fee (youth under 17 are free) into a dropbox at the archery range entrance. Archers should then proceed to any available range or walking course, as there is no need to “check in” after having paid the fee online or at the dropbox location.
As a reminder, customers and staff are required to wear a face covering before entering any public building or restroom. A face covering is required for anyone who cannot maintain social distancing of six feet or more.
Also, to maintain social distancing, safety officers cannot provide personalized instruction. For everyone’s safety, a “zero tolerance” policy will be strictly enforced.
