(Houston, TX- May 20, 2024) Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) is pleased to announce its partnership with their newest corporate sponsor, Copendero Indoor Archery, Pistol & Rifle Range.

Copendero offers a 32,000 square foot premier shooting experience. Their brand-new facility, located in Conroe, Texas, houses a 25-yard Shooting Range and a 25-yard Tactical Range. One of Copendero’s main attractions is their 100-yard, fully indoor rifle range. Fully enclosed 100-yard ranges are a rarity in the United States, and none of them are quite like Copendero’s. The 100-yard range is perfect for adjusting scopes or taking aim at a real-world distance in a controlled environment. Copendero also offers a 20-yard indoor archery range, firearms retail space, shooting instruction, and more! All of their shooting lanes feature ultra-modern Genesis retrievers from Action Target, giving shooters advanced digital control over their range time.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the esteemed Houston Safari Club Foundation. This collaboration marks a significant milestone for our organization, as we join forces to serve our incredible hunting and shooting community. We are excited to embark on this partnership with Houston Safari Club as we aim to elevate the hunting and shooting experience for our members and customers, as well as promote the values of conservation and responsible firearm usage. As part of this partnership, we are eager to explore various collaboration opportunities, including joint events, educational initiatives, and community outreach programs. Through these endeavors, both of our organizations strive to strengthen the bonds within the hunting and shooting community and promote safe and ethical practices,” stated Jerry Copeland, Owner, Copendero Indoor Archery, Pistol & Rifle Range.

“Copendero has really stepped up to boost HSCF’s programs in youth education, scholarship and conservation. We are extremely appreciative of their support and look forward to an enduring partnership,” states Joe Betar, Executive Director, Houston Safari Club Foundation.
