Talking Where do you pratice your shooting ?

I'm an archer who has to pratice in order to even shoot good .

I have about 11 yard range in my basement and plan to shoot again at my archery club's 20 yard indoor range , a few times a week !

Where does everyone else here shoot their bows during this time of year to pratice ?

I also have a short range set up in my basement. It allows me to work on my form/shot execution. I also will go shoot spots indoors during the winter.

About 8 yards in the house when I'm feeling lazy or I go to one of the local indoor ranges on weekends or days off. Oh yeah, there's also the weekly leagues and Sunday tourneys to keep the muscles limber....

at the shop once in awhile during the winter but mostley spend all my time blank baling in my basement at 10 yards.

Pretty much hate punching paper, so the basement is fine till there is indoor 3d shoot to attend, but once outdoors start..its all outside.

I can get 30 yards in my yard. If I need to shoot farther I go to a friends and use his 100 yard range. I also use this for my firearms.

In nice weather there is a public range in a park near my office. I can get up to 90 meters there. In bad weather, my boss lets me shoot in the warehouse after hours. I also have 5 yards in the basement & 45 minutes away is my club.

So I don't have an excuse to not practice, but somehow, I manage to find one a couple of days a week.

I at a one of our empty industial sheds at Capalaba!!!Great this time of year as it gets you out of the heat and pouring rain. Also 4 walls and a roof make for tuning a pleasure as you don't have to contend with the wind factor.We can shoot out to 40yards at the moment inside ,just watch some come down now I've written this and rent the thing out!!!

Haven't shot much lately, but when I do, I live on 4 acres, so I can shoot in my yard if the weather is decent. Sometimes I go out to the range, but it is a 40 min drive.

Talking A little known fact !

I can shot at my club's indoor range !

Here is a outside photo of my club's indoor range , than the inside and finally my basement 11 yard setup !

This is where the shooting of archery begins and continues as I'm not a very good natural shooter !

My pops and I shoot and hunt together. We have 16 acres behind our houses that we practice on. Used to have a twenty target 3d range but, some of them have been shot out so that's down to ten now.
