Free range archers

We have a public archery range about half as kilometer from home. It's great to have such an opportunity just at the walking distance. But still, it requires some effort to get there. And once there you don't want to see all that trouble for a few shots.

That's why I also setup a small range at our backyard. There isn't much room to get any good distance top practice target shooting. But it's great to have a place where you can just step out and do a couple of shots whenever I want.

It's also good enough to do some technical practice. Something I don't want to waste too much time during the trip to the proper range. There, I want to focus on hitting the target at distance.

If you want to become good at something you need to be doing it constantly, daily. And if you want to keep doing something daily you need to make it as easy as possible to do it. Some things are naturally easy and can be done almost everywhere. But shooting a bow needs some special environment and conditions. I'm lucky to have such good options available to make it possible to practice every day.
