One of the best things about archery is that, as with BB guns and air rifles, it's often possible to set up an archery range right in your back yard. That's because the effective range of a bow and arrow tends to top out at 60 yards or so, so many suburban homes will have room to shoot archery safely right out back. However, the operant word in that last sentence is "safely." Just like firearms and air guns, archery equipment isn't a toy and should be treated with utmost respect--but the good news is that isn't difficult to do. The Archery Trade Association just released this informative video that offers all the tips you need to practice this terrific sport without leaving home...it's a must-watch!
