Question Need Advice I'm New to Archery

Need the TBH community's advice on where to go and get my new (used) bow tuned and set up. Looking for good friendly customer service and professional knowledge. I have shot before but not that much. Looking for somewhere they won't make me feel like an idiot, answer questions and seem to care, and not blow me off. I am in Mansfield (Tarrant County) and don't mind driving to go somewhere Good!

I've been happy with Cinnamon Creek Ranch. Maybe some south metroplex guys have a shop that's closer for you...

Cinnamon Creek Ranch has a bunch of great reviews. I'll bet they could hook you up with whatever you need. I live east of DFW so I go to On Target Outdoors in Canton. Great archery shop with an indoor range and knowledgeable staff. There are some other good shops in the general area as well. Best of luck and welcome to the site!

I live in Mansfield, happy to help you figure archery stuff out. Alvarado Archery is probably the closest to Mansfield, I have a couple buddies who got set up there who were very happy with the service. You can PM me if you want

I'm in Mansfield as well if you ever want to shoot. I also frequent Alvarado Archery and CCR. Both are great. Are you new to Mansfield or just new to archery?

Ps I saw you are into mountain biking. I just got hooked on mountain biking and go out to Cedar Hill SP and TexPlex.

Ive had great experiences with CCR and Alvarado archery. CCR is definitley worth the drive just to meet Jeff (fishndadio) besides the wealth of knowledge among the staff, and i think the guy that I liked for technical stuff at Alvarado opened his own shop in Stephenville. I try to give Alvarado a share of my business just because of the great service I've gotten there, and I like supporting the local bow shop, but CCR is first choice if I need bow work or just want to hang around a bow shop.and range for a couple hours.

Iím in Mansfield as well. I usually go to Alvarado, unless Iím going to be in the North Ft. Worth area. Both are great shops, and neither of them will make you feel dumb. Steve at Alvarado got me set up with my bow, and spent the time to work with me on the range.
