Within the indoor archery lanes at Tallahassee Indoor Shooting Range, arrows leap off their bowstrings, disappear behind curtains of speed, and reappear at their destinations with mighty-and-satisfying smacks. Eight such lanes exist inside the range’s 30,000-square-foot warehouse facility, each one strewn with targets and decoys at odd intervals along its 30-yard length. Once archers have gotten comfortable slinging their arrows from a stationary position, they can move on to the interactive deer-hunting trail, where they’ll take aim at moving deer targets hiding within the facility’s indoor forest.
