Buck and Doe’s Mercantile in San Antonio is one of the area’s largest archery dealers, with an indoor archery range making us the only stop you need to be ready to head to the field with confidence. We typically stock 50 to 70 compound bows for target, 3D and hunting, so you have a nice selection to choose from. We also carry a large selection of accessories. Buck and Doe’s Mercantile can help you find the perfect bow to fit your needs.

Bow Types

Buck and Doe’s Mercantile offers compound bows, recurve bows and crossbows for hunting, target, or pleasure. There are several factors to consider, and the experts at Buck and Doe’s Mercantile can help you with every decision along the way. The bow that is the right choice for you will draw efficiently, operate smoothly, and be an extension of your body.

Our archery experts at our archery pro shop can assist you to:

  • Determine your dominant eye – should you be shooting left or right-handed.
  • Determine your draw length – Knowing your draw length will ultimately determine your match to a proper draw-length bow. Keep in mind that using a release aid can add ½ to 1 inch to your draw length.
  • Determine an anchor point that works for you. Consistency is the key to success.
  • Determine your draw weight – It’s important to pick a weight that you can draw comfortably under less than ideal conditions. 
  • Determine let-off – Let-off is the difference between the maximum weight required to pull the bow to full draw and how much weight you hold at full draw. This is an often-overlooked area that makes a difference in comfort and accuracy by being able to hold steady on a target.

HeliCoil technology is the engine behind Ravin Crossbows. This revolutionary technology delivers several industry changing advantages that work together to create the most accurate crossbow ever designed.

This revolutionary design creates an incredibly compact crossbow filled with features that produce rifle-like downrange accuracy.

Took my LTC class with instructor Ron Benton. I honestly thought it would be a boring class, falling asleep, etc. Boy, was I wrong! Very informative, laid back, cracking jokes. I really enjoyed myself. I will recommend everyone I know to come take his class because I know they will have a great experience as I did. Thank you Ron.

– Joshua Rice

Buck & Doe’s is such a great to learn gun safety. The staff is so helpful on any level your at. Their instructors in my opinion are the best and I look forward to learning more. If you have any interest in practicing your second amendment right, this is the place to to start or continue.

– Curtis Kilgore

Disappointed I didn’t come here sooner! Great place and experience. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Ron Benton was my instructor and he was professional, courtesy, knowledgeable and friendly. Atmosphere wasn’t super uptight or stiff but safety was addressed first and foremost. Plan on coming back real soon!

– Cuong Nguyen

Great spot to get the supplies to exercise your 2nd Amendment right and do a little shopping! Nice selection of smoker and cast iron supplies. Huge supply of holsters made locally. Gun range was clean and solid with reasonable rates.

– Julie Winter

Ron Benton was the instructor for my LTC course, and he was fantastic. Had an awesome experience completing my certification. Every single person I interacted with here was great. They treat you right and all have a great attitude. Unlike some other ranges, you feel like these guys and gals actually want to be there!
