Backyard Archery – in this week we focus on setting up our private archery range in our backyard. A Backyard Archery range is a luxurious thing. You can practice at your own space and in your free time as you want, save your money to go or rent archery range and skip the drive to the local range. At the end of these 16 weeks, the plan is to shoot one shot a day for a week. Until then, you will be using the range to work on you form, sight in with field points and broad heads and have a lot of fun throughout the summer.
If you have the space in your home a backyard archery, a garage or even a basement – and it’s legal to shoot a bow where you live (the fastest way to find this out is to call the police department and ask about any ordinances restricting archery in your area) you can setup a sweet range at home using classic tips below. The most important thing to remember is safety. Know your surroundings. Use a bal fingers or mats as a backstop to stop errant shots, and always be conscious of what’s downrange.
