Located minutes from the Des Moines Metro the Ankeny Ikes provides a premier members only shooting facility.
We host a wide variety of events that are open to the public, some of which include regularly scheduled Trap, 5-Stand, USPSA, Steel Challenge, and IDPA, and Multi-Gun matches.
Members enjoy access to our facility during daylight hours year round, allowing them to utilize our Archery range, manual trap thrower, as well as one of our five shooting ranges.
Members also enjoy additional discounts to many of our sponsored events such as Trap, 5-Stand, and our Competitive Shooting matches.
Our work is guided entirely by grassroots volunteers. Our chapter advances the mission of the Izaak Walton League – restoring watersheds, reducing air pollution, fighting litter, protecting wildlife habitat and open spaces, and instilling conservation ethics in outdoor recreationists. To reach potential new members we encourage members to bring guests to our facility to enjoy the shooting sports opportunities we have to offer. Facilities are for the use of members, their families and guests. Guests are not expected to be continuous users of the facilities and are encouraged to become members.
Please follow these rules when bringing guests to our facility:
Remember the primary purpose of bringing guests is to share our facility and grow our membership, be sure to suggest your guests join and support our chapter.
Our shooting ranges are available for members use and depend on our members using them safely and responsibly. To facilitate thus we have created two documents to assist our members in safely using the range. They can be found at the bottom of this page.
Please remember that our facility is run by volunteers, so clean up after yourself when you are done shooting. Take down your targets, clean up your trash, and police your brass. In general try to leave the range a little cleaner than when you arrived.
The Trap Range Safety Rules can be found at the bottom of this page.
Please direct all questions to the Trap Committee.
The archery rules can be found at the bottom of this page. Please direct all questions to the Ankeny Ikes Board.
