Tallahassee Archery Club Safety and Range Rules

Range Safety

Always leave one member of the group or some other warning of your presence if you are behind a target. Example: Leave bow in front of Target.
Never release an arrow when you can’t see where it will land. Never “flight shoot” an arrow in the woods. Never shoot straight up into the air.
Never shoot a broken arrow. Inspect them as you retrieve them.
Remember… at all times a bow is a deadly weapon, just like a gun. Treat it as such.
