Lost Arrow Archers of Casper Wyoming is a Not-for-Profit Recreational Archery Club. Our Club’s primary goal and purpose is to provide an opportunity for people with similar interests to gather in the Sport of Archery, and to promote the sport of Target archery, 3-d Archery, as well as bow hunting in Central Wyoming. We WELCOME and encourage all Archers and non-archers to join with us, and participate in making our club a social and family oriented partner in Central Wyoming.   Lost Arrow Archers schedules several 3-D archery tournaments every Year, including a Triple Crown Event. In the summer a weekend Hunting/Competition event is scheduled on top of Casper Mountain at the Natrona County Archery Range. During the long winter Months we have archery league where everyone is invited to compete against one another or just come on out and get together and practice the sport of Archery.

One of the purposes of Lost Arrow Archers is to provide bow hunters, both experienced and new, with the basic fundamentals of good, safe bow hunting while maintaining the highest ethical standards in the sport. The immediate objective is to instill in all bow hunters a responsible attitude and to adopt and follow acceptable behavior towards people, wildlife and the environment in which they hunt.
