Deer Creek Archery outfits fledgling archers with the skills and equipment to take expert aim year-round inside the facility’s 8,000-square-foot indoor shooting range. During 60-minute lessons, arrow aces lead pupils through the basics of form, technique, proper equipment use, aim, release, and secret hunter’s handshakes. Learned students then take aim at a variety of 2-D, 3-D, still, and moving targets inside the shooting arena. Archers keep their own scores, letting duos freely compete for most accurate distance shot, least amount of bulls-eyes, or best Ted Nugent impersonation.

Deer Creek Archery

The old warehouse didn't seem ideal to house much of anything, but the rent was cheap once George Bennett offered to make all his own renovations. Drawing from a background as a builder, he created his own architectural plans, and he and a friend set to work on construction. For months, George arrived early in the morning to demolish old partitions and install lighting and windows. As the transformation neared its finish, the pair mounted new walls, spread mulch floor covering, and set up targets and quivers in the 8,000-square-foot archery range. George invited the National Shooting Sports Foundation to examine his facilities and received a four-star rating.

Now, more than a decade later, arrows sing through the air, slipping percussively into three types of targets. The targets sprout up from a tree-dotted floor under rustic wooden rafters along the indoor range that spans 45 yards while computer-controlled moving targets in the form of three-dimensional deer, beavers, and wolves trot across the range. Additional animal targets positioned closer to the shooter's area allow traditional longbow and recurve bow users to test their marksmanship. A dedicated indoor crossbow range lurks in the back and an Archery-Tag range invites visitors to engage in a new twist on paintball as they wage battle on each other with string bows slinging foam-tipped arrows.

Special events can be held in the facility's party room, which is equipped with AC, heat, a fridge, and a range monitor to keep guests apprised of the happenings outside. To prepare for successful shooting sessions, the pro shop offers all manner of equipment repair and the chance for visitors to peruse racks of compound bows from the Mathews series as well as Mission gear and Matthews Officially Licensed Products. The shop also has quivers brimming with Carbon Tech arrows, and George and his staff make other arrows by hand, which George sometimes inscribes with Deer Creek's logo with the care of a painter autographing his children.

We had a great time! Our instructor got us acclimated with the rules and showed us how to properly use the bow and arrows. She kept an eye on us as we got started. We were left to our own devices for a while, then she returned and we had a final shooting competition, complete with a prize for the winner! Lots of laughs as we hit and missed things, but the lanes were set up nicely with a variety of targets. This was a well-spent hour of entertainment!

Staff was so very very friendly. I couldn't be happier with the experience we had ! So much fun and worth the hour and a half drive we had to take to get there
