The sport of archery—unlike punching the air hoping to hit a bird—persists as a popular hunting method despite its relatively low-tech equipment. Aim high with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an introductory archery package that includes a one-month range membership (a $35 value), an introductory archery lesson (a $15 value), one hour of virtual hunting for one shooter (a $18 value), and three one-hour bow rentals (a $21 value) at The Archer's Edge in Oakdale (an $89 total value). After using the first three bow rentals included with this Groupon, customers may continue to rent bows ($7/hour) or bring their own.
The Archer's Edge's passionate staff helps all levels of bow hunters hone their craft with wide array of equipment alongside real and virtual targets. Aspiring hunters can get acquainted with their armaments in a 20-minute session with one of The Archer’s Edge’s pro staff members, who will explain the importance of safety, proper form, and playing the bow as a fiddle. In the indoor range arrow-hurlers can empty quivers at seven 20-yard, temperature-controlled lanes (reservations recommended). With the AIS TechnoHunt, archers use their own equipment to explore more than 700 realistic hunting scenarios and a virtual partner who decries the high price of earmuffs. Although range targets are not included in today's Groupon, they are available for purchase in The Archer's Edge's full-size pro shop.
