Archery ranges in atlanta?
I have recently been inable to go practice archery for the past 3 months due to my work and the distance to my normal place. I'm looking for an archery range and such close by the atlanta area if anyone knows of one. I've done various google searches but most of thema re atleast 45min-1.5 hours away. I'd love to find a place that is closer so I am able to go practice more often.
Anyways, if any of you are archers in the atl area, please impart some ideas on where to go or even share where you practice archery.
thankyou for your time guys!

the Kenesaw range is north of Atlanta just a bit and a really good place to shoot. call Jim Cambell or Neil Foster for directions. a nice quiet place and a really nice overhead cover / picnic area. they even have a restroom out there. enjoy.

"Atlanta" covers a large area, what part of Atlanta are you looking in so we can give better information.
Kennesaw is an awesome place and some of the greatest people you have ever meet..
A family that shoots together stays together forever.

Sorry that I was terribly vague. I live specifically in Decatur about 10 mins from Emory Universty. The place I've been going to is the Army Navy Store which has an indoor practice range and they let me use it for free, the problem is it's waay up there near anvil block and it takes a while for me to get to so I can't devote too much time going there. Hopefully ya'll know of some place nearby the decatur area.

If you want to shoot with us in Lawrenceville, you could drive up 85 or 29. We shoot every Tues night around 4:30 -7 and some Sat. mornings behind the National Guard Armory a little past down town Lawrenceville.
tchiex at gmail.com if you want some more information.
Oh and its free. And open to use anytime except the 2nd weekend of the month when our Brave Army Guys are using it.

From another in Decatur....
Welcome to the great archery void!
The closest range (and easiest traffic IMO) is out in Covington, 12 Pt Archery at Piedmont Outdoors ((770) 784-1111; 2467 Access Rd; Covington, GA 30016)
From downtown Decatur, I would estimate 45 minutes to an hour, but the traffic is not nearly as bad as heading up I-85.
Contact Jake Veit, jvarcher at charter.net, for options up I-85. He shoots at the armory mentioned above and another place or two.
And definitely come out and join us on Saturday in Conyers, http://www.gaarchery.org/appsTools/e....php?id_evt=81.
Conyers is just a bit closer than Covington, about 40 minutes from Decatur. (I'll be there... and shooting if my new limbs show up by some miracle!)

The place I go to often is called the Army Navy Store that's a good half hour away in Henry County. Great people there and definitely great service too if you ever need it. I'm going to look up where 12point archery is in regards to where I live and i'll probably go check it out one day when i'm not too busy.

Does anyone know of any archery ranges in the Alpharetta/North Atlanta area? I've been doing google searches for a week now and I can't find anything that isn't out in the sticks! I'm very interested in trying out some of the local tournaments and leagues if I can find one that isn't too far away.
Also, can anyone recommend a good pro shop in the ATL where I could go to get some good buying advice and test the pull on a few bows?

We have some great archery going on in the area! For N Atlanta, the closest is Kennesaw archery club. That's where we go -- it's about an hour from us in Alpharetta. We also have some great coaching -- one of the Jr. Dream Team coaches is in the N. Atlanta area, and coaches at KAC if you're a recurve shooter -- he's also a Landcaster dealer. Also one of the best compound coaches in the country is a few hours away.
The Georgia Games is coming up in a couple of weeks in Conyers -- you should come to that as well! There's info on the Georgia Archery Association website.

@ButchD: I'm interested in getting my feet wet with either recurve or compound--it's been years since I shot with my dad, and I've just recently picked it back up. I'd like to get a taste of all the different indoor/outdoor/3d shoots to see what suits me. At the moment, though, I'm looking for a bow!
Hoyts have been recommended by just about everybody, but are pretty expensive, even used. I found a Martin Jaguar Recurve I get get online for $129, which I'm seriously considering for throwing my first arrows.
@archerymom2: That makes more than one person recommending Kennesaw as the place to be. Shame I don't still live in Acworth. Still, I've looked at the site and I see that they have beginner classes in the latter part of most months, so I might come out July 25th.
@xcreekarchery1: Thanks for the invite, but I need a bow first! Sounds like you have a great place to practice, though. Where in the world did you find 90 meters in Alpharetta?? :]

I think we should get some guys together and a place. Everybody bring a target and setup our own range once a week
