    i just use my yard, the backdeck my just be a visual thing, if not just shoot a group at a time, dont make a long exibit of it, Get in get out. No way they can pinpoint ya in a matter of minutes.

    I shoot in my yard even though we're not supposed to. I also shoot at a local archery shop when I have the spare cash for the range fees. Do you have a range near you?

    Maybe get one of those block targets and shoot in the garage? short range is better than no range. or better yet shoot outside, but dont get caught. Do you live in the city limits?

    Mr.East- What kind of fish is that?

    I hate to recommend being a scoff law buttttttttt, its light enough to see at 5:30 AM in Virginia. I would sight it in one pin a day over several days while everyone is still in bed. Quit shooting at the nieghbor's cat :wink:

    Gosh, with a good backstop what would be the trouble. I have a fence with a target in front of it and have never had any trouble. Some people like to complain
    about things. No law here that says you can't. Thank goodness.

    Flag down that officer and tell him your dilema, he may have some suggestions.

    I'm sure there's a Archery Store near you that you can ask where to shoot or they may even have an indoor Archery Range for you to shoot in. Good luck and shoot safely.:roll_eyes:
