“Great family owned business with a whole lot of new items and great ideas on involving the community. John was very helpful and gave us personal attention in finding a great bow for my son. Gives discounts to 4-H kids and went above and beyond our expectations in customer service. They are putting in a lot of hard work remodeling the place, and I believe this will be a great asset locally in Canon City!”

“The owner John and his wife are fantastic! John has never failed to greet me with a friendly smile and firm handshake. He has an excellent knowledge and experience pool. He carries a wide variety of equipment and seems to be in tune with what the community wants/needs to see the shop become. If you are a local archer, guide, or simply curious about archery this is you go to location!”

“Being new to the sport, I did a lot of research online. After talking with John and his staff they made even the most technical stuff easy to understand. I had a budget in which I needed to stick with, and they never tried to up sell me to the more expensive products. This is the perfect place for beginners, and experienced archers alike, to hone their skills. And the indoor 20 yard range is a wonderful place to learn.”

Customers, RGArchery

The owners John & Misty are super! They seem really passionate about what they do here at the Royal Gorge Archery & Range. Even though I don’t know much about archery, they are kind and more than willing to teach me and my family whatever they can. This is one of the best-hidden gems that your family can enjoy here in Fremont County. Come join in on the fun… you’ll be glad you did!

This Is Our Passion

Owner John Vernetti is passionate about archery. John has been involved since 1994. 

John is right on target for commingling his new business venture with community involvement. He purchased Royal Gorge Archery & range at 309 Main St in October 2015 and has already found ways to give back to the community by offering discounts to 4-H members and first responders and hosting fun shoots as a way of collecting food and toys for local organizations.

In John’s own words, “We are passionate about archery and we treat every customer the way we want to be treated.

Whether you are a beginning, intermediate, or even advanced archer, Archery will give you something that’s almost impossible to find elsewhere.
