Improve Your Archery
Are you looking for a place to improve and practice your archery skills all year round? Or maybe you just want to try something with your family that’s fun and different. At Buck and Doe’s Mercantile, our indoor archery range allows everyone, from beginners to those looking to sharpen their skills, a place to practice in a well-lit, climate-controlled environment. All lanes are available on a walk-in basis – no reservations or memberships required! Our targets range from a wall of block targets and moveable block targets to meet your required distance to a large variety of 3-D targets, and even crossbow targets.
We keep a full line of rental bows, recurve and compound, to ensure we can accommodate large families, parties and groups interested in trying something new and fun. When you rent a recurve bow from Buck & Doe’s, you’ll get set up with the bow and arrows, a quick safety briefing and some basics to get you started. If a compound bow is more your style, please allow 15-20 minutes for measurements and bow set up by one of our experienced archery team members. Bow rental fees are $15 for a recurve bow or $20 for a compound bow. All rentals come with a protective armband and all the arrows you’ll need to have a fun time shooting on the range.
Top five reasons you should visit our indoor archery range:
When you come to Buck and Doe’s Mercantile indoor archery range, you’ll notice that every aspect of our business is professional. That’s because we want to ensure that you always have an excellent experience when you visit our facility. We always aim to be the best. Our staff and on-site experts are polite and helpful, ready to assist you in any way possible.
Safety is our number one priority at Buck and Doe’s Mercantile. Everyone stands at a designated shooting line facing targets that are set 20 yards (18 meters) away. Targets can be placed closer for younger or beginning archers. Once you shoot your arrows, you will wait at the line until everyone else on the range is done. When everyone has finished shooting, the person supervising the range will give a signal that it is safe to proceed to the target and retrieve your arrows.
At our Gun and Archery Pro Shop, you’ll find a wide selection of all of the premier brands of archery products. We carry equipment that you can rent; or you can “try-before-you-buy” some of the equipment on the indoor archery range to see how you like it.
Selecting the right bow can be tricky – especially if you’re new to the sport. If you need help deciding on which equipment will work best for you to enhance your shooting experience, we are always able to provide some advice and pointers. Our staff will answer all of your questions so that you can start successfully shooting on the indoor archery range right away.
Buck and Doe’s Mercantile is Central Texas’ premier facility for hosting archery tournaments. We host a wide range of competitive tournaments at our indoor archery range facility. We offer everything from traditional archery tournaments to tournaments with 3-D, life-size targets.
We also have many options if you’re looking to get more involved in the sport of archery. In addition to competing in tournaments, you can also join an indoor archery league or club. We offer options for all levels of archers.
In addition to being a whole lot of fun, archery is good for you. Pulling back on the bow and holding it steady as you shoot builds strength in the upper body. As you continue to practice your focus, balance, and coordination will improve. You’ll also get a lot of walking in as you move between targets and retrieve your arrows, which can burn about 140 calories per hour.
Archery is also great for your mental and emotional health. You’ll gain confidence and improve your self-esteem as you improve in the sport. Many find the focus required in archery to be very relaxing and therapeutic.
