Default Spring/Woodlands bow hunters!

New to the Spring, Woodlands area. Any good archery ranges or just back roads I could set up my target for field points? Need a good place to get some practice in, currently living in an apartment.

The Bow ZONE near Carter Country on Treshwig has a range, I think the name is now Archery Connection or something like that.

There is also a county park a mile or so past TX Archery that has an archery range. I think it is called Carter Park.

Went to Texas Archery for the first time on Saturday to have a new string put on my bow. I mentioned it was my first time there and the guy took my info,tagged my bow and took me on a quick tour. Seemed like an awesome place I will definitely be shooting there come summertime

The public range past Tx Archery is free. It's pretty nice IMO and the times I have been it has just been me and 1-2 other folks shooting. They have permanent target butts from 10-50 yards.

Well carter park was awesome except the part where I stuck four arrows in their hay/wood targets and couldn't get them out. Four free arrows with field tips to whoever can pull the sword from the stone

TX Archery is awesome and they have really knowledgeable people if you need work done on your bow. Joe set up my bow with a new string I ordered from HogWire and he did an awesome job and helped me with a form issue while I was there. Can't recommend this shop enough. I visit Houston/Spring 3-4 times a year for work, if I lived there, I'd be there every week to shoot (and I would be broke probably).

TX archery is good, but its about 30 minutes from the woodlands without traffic.
I usually find an empty parking lot for an office or church and set up.

That sucks, but the arrows can be removed from the targets at TA

It's a great range the Carter family donated the land and it's a top notch outdoor range.

It was great. Quiet, wooded area, nice set up but if I go back I'm bringing my target for field points. I had to leave four arrows in the targets there because they stuck into the wood or whatever it is.

It's a nice little spot. Covered area. Can get a little muddy at times but not bad. I shoot there occasionally. Of your in the area just drive by one day
