Archery Range Rules:
- DO NOT shoot arrows with broadheads at standard targets. NO broadheads allowed on the range
- NEVER point a bow and arrow at another person.
- NEVER shoot an arrow straight up into the air. You can end up hitting another person or yourself.
- At practice ranges, the only safe place is behind the shooting line.
- NEVER shoot an arrow until you are positive that no one is in front of you or behind the targets.
- Conversely, don't stand in front of a bow while it is being shot, even if you are to one side of the shooter.
- Wait for a verbal approval from the Range Captain or his designee before starting to shoot.
- Arrows should only be nocked on the shooting line and pointed in the direction of the targets.
- After you are done shooting, wait for the word: CLEAR from the Range Captain or his designee before going toward the targets to retrieve your arrows.
- WALK, don't run toward the targets. Remember that the arrows are sticking out and can injure you.
- When pulling arrows out of a target, stand to one side and insure that no one is directly behind you.
- If you are looking for a lost arrow behind a target, always leave your bow leaning against the target face so that it will be seen by other archers coming up. If possible, have one archer from your group stand in front of the target to prevent anyone from shooting.
- If archers will be shooting concurrently at varying distances, stagger the targets, not the people. This goes back to the previous rule about having one shooting line and staying behind it.
- If any person or animal (i.e. dog) enters the safety zone while shooting is in progress, the emergency signal must be given (3 or more blasts of a whistle) and all shooting must stop immediately. Even if the bow is held at full draw and the signal is given, the arrow must not be released. The bow should be pointed at the ground and the bowstring let slowly forward. The arrow should be removed from the bow until the range is clear.
- Archers should always be aware of the danger associated with their bow. No archer should shoot while under the influence of drugs or alcoho
I Agree All archers are expected to know, adhere to, and help enforce Down Range’s Safety Rules and Regulations. If you observe a violation of the range rules, please bring it to the attention of any staff member and we will take corrective action. It is our goal to maintain a safe environment for the enjoyment of our members and customers. Blatant disregard for range rules and/or intentional damage to property will be grounds for automatic removal from the range without a refund and will not be allowed back at our facility. Members will forfeit their membership fees and will not be refunded.
A SIGNATURE CONFIRMS THE APPLICANT UNDERSTANDS, AND WILL COMPLY WITH THE ABOVE DOWN RANGE SAFETY RULES AND REGULATIONS AND ATTEST TO THE BELOW WAIVER
