Training Facility for the NC 4-H Hunting Skills Team
The TCYSS Range located at 210 Amber Hill Rd, Yadkinville or Mocksville NC (Use Mocksville for GPS and Yadkinville for Mail) is in the very NW corner of Davie County, North Carolina. Currently we have a 100yd Rifle/Muzzleloader/Pistol Range. A 40yd Archery Range and a Shotgun Field where we can set up for ATA Trap, "Hunter ED Trap", 5-Stand and Wingshooting Scenarios. We are currently in the process of creating a 3-D Archery Range. Our goal is to be able to provide a facility to train for almost any youth shooting sports skill. Our current project is to create a training facility for Hunting Skills that will include the Wingshooting
Shotgun Field, 3-D Archery and Rifle and Muzzleloader scenarios that simulate hunting situations. For instance shooting targets at unknown distances including from blinds and elevated stands. The hunting skills setup will be used for training Hunting Skills teams, Hunter Education Field Days, 4-H Summer Fun Days and for individuals and especially families that are new to hunting and want to increase their skills or need an introduction to hunting to learn new skills.
The TCYSS Range also has a small clubhouse/classroom, a covered shelter and a fire pit. Currently our restroom facilities are a bit "primitive" (Portable) but we're working on it!
