it's time for a little fun in the sun, and some times the summer heat is a little unbearable in this neck of the woods. Fortunately, we can come indoors and still get our hunting done. Plenty of animals to go for and plenty of fun to be had.
"It's nice to be able to come in here and stay in the air conditioning, because it's summer and you hardly get to shoot your bows in the summer because it's too hot," says Donald Matthews of the Full Draw Indoor Archery Range.
The good news is that archery is a sport open to all ages, whether you're good enough to challenge the Lord of Nottingham, or spent the majority of your life living in the city.
"Everybody, reason we want everybody is because it's a sport that everybody can enjoy, it's a family sport you spend time with your kids, and you've got the hunters who will come here to sharpen their skills, and you have tournament people here just to do tournaments," says Full Draw co-owner Paul Falzone.
On that note, my first lesson was an expensive one, as my first shot went awry. The good people at Full Draw Indoor Archery Range noticed they'd have to buy a new air hose as I lifted my kill. But, they didn't lose faith in their novice.
"Oh yes, we'll be able to teach you and show you everything you need to know to do it," states a confident Matthews.
And soon redemption was had, as the targets were hit, and the animals were scared.
The beauty of indoor archery is that you can still pose with your trophy and at the same time, no animals were hurt in the making of this video.
If only the same could be said about the air hose.
