One of the good things about living in the country and having my own ranges for practice is the convenience. I can walk outside and shoot paper or 3D. When I finish a session it is a short walk home. It really is very nice.
When I lived in Maryland getting to Schrader’s Outdoors for 3D practice wasn’t too bad. It was only a 30-minute drive to their 30 targets in the woods. Shooting field style meant another 30 minute drive to Mid-Del Archers or the Tuckahoe Bowman ranges. Indoor shooting was a longer drive, an hour, to shoot at Cypress Creek Archery in Millington, Maryland. Here in North Carolina the only thing that prevents me from easy access to targets is bad weather. But, one of the biggest advantages is the bathroom.
Granted, there’s plenty of forested secluded natural cover for those pick pit stops where I live. Still, there are times when snake free and tick free comforts are greatly appreciated.
Spending hours on the range can lead to a time when those comforts and security from reptiles or insects is paramount.
