Archery Ranges
An archery range is where the sport of archery is played. Archery involves shooting with a bow and arrow or crossbow, usually at a far-off target. Ranges are safe environments where people can learn this skill, practice, and train for competitions. Some archery ranges are part of private sports clubs, while others are public. Many feature heated indoor and outside 3-D courses where people can train on their own or take a private or group class. Archery can be a fun hobby for many. Others take it more seriously and use it as a method for hunting. Many archery ranges feature clubs and regular tournaments, along with neighboring club affiliations. Target and 3D animal shoots also take place pretty regularly, as do cross bow competitions. Some even feature a campground, where visitors are welcome to camp out for the weekend. Similar to the more primitive bow and arrow is the crossbow. Crossbows are weapons involving a bow mounted on a stock that shoots projectiles. In medieval times, the name “crossbow” was taken from the word “ballista,” a torsion engine that looked very much like a crossbow. There are many different types of crossbows, including recurve, pistol, compound, and repeating. There are multiple parts to a bow and arrow system, such as quivers, releases, shafts, jigs, and nocks. Arrows and systems are usually made of aluminum and are very durable. Participants need to wear special safety gear, which they can learn all about during a bow and arrow class. Supply items, equipment, and accessories, such as treestands, can be found at a hunting supplies store or archery specialty shop. Some archery ranges post their happenings at local recreation departments. Some also have their own websites outlining services, rates, events, and club information.

If you enjoy bow hunting game like deer, pigs, caribou, and sheep, then you might want to spend some time practicing at archery ranges that have targets to help you hone your skills. Some archery ranges have equipment and products that you can buy, such as longbows, arrows, quivers, cases strings, tabs, gloves, arm guards, blinds, glue, and outdoor gear like tree stands. Some outfitters also have re-curve services. Re-curve services will help ensure that your longbow is in top condition and accurate. When you contact the archery range, ask them how long they have been in business. Those with several years of experience should have access to the targets, arrows, equipment, and services that you need. Ask them if you need to purchase a bow hunting archery membership or if you can pay to use the archery range when ever you feel like using it. Ask them if their archery ranges are in a building or outside. There are advantages to both. Those in a building can be used regardless of weather or time of day. Primitives might prefer outside ranges, though, because they more accurately represent the environment that the sports take place in. Ask them if they are affiliated with any other companies or organizations. You might want to choose one that is a member of a sports organization because they will understand what you need to practice your bow hunting skills. Find out what their hours are and where they are located. You should also get their contact information in case you need to call them in the future.
