winter indoor season begins 🙂

Question:

Just thought I’d say hello.  Winter indoor season begins next Monday. I bought a used Hoyt compound target bow a couple of weeks ago and I can’t wait to loose a few arrows. Any Canadians on this site?  I shoot in Cambridge, Ontario. cheers Bob

Response:

Im a beginner archer based near Toronto, probably going to shoot at Hart House as soon as I can afford the membership.  I don’t own any equipment other than my finger tab and arm guard at the moment, but I prefer a nice Recurve bow at the moment. Not really experienced enough to tell the differences between the brands yet. Sabrina

Hi Sabrina, I shot a target recurve last year in the winter with hopes of shooting in the summer. I found I was just too busy in the summer to devote the time required to really gain enough skill to carry on with the recurve. I really like this Hoyt bow, its about 5 years old and very quiet. Good luck with shooting. Bob

Hi Bob, I was going to devote more time this summer to archery as well, but then the free time barrier hit me as well, Still, I find range get togethers a great way to spend an afternoon. When I was shooting in the summer (not as much as I hoped, but some nonetheless) most of the people were also beginners as I was, and the person who operated the range provided us with lender bows until we were experienced enough to know what we wanted from our own bow. There seem to be alot more people taking up archery in the GTA than I remember. And of course, I see that as a good thing Sabrina

Response:

Another Canadian clocking in to say hello too.  I finished a beginner introductory course in Vancouver last year and loved it.  Unfortunately, I haven’t done any shooting since then.  I’ve since moved to Toronto and am looking for a good place to get reacquainted with the sport before I spend any money on equipment. Sabrina, perhaps we’ll bump into each other as I see you’re in Toronto too. Would you recommend Hart House as a club?  Do they accept non-student members?  I don’t really have any idea where to shoot yet.  Suggestions?

Response:

Hi Jon Well, the Hart House shooting range is the ONLY indoor range I know of in the city. They do have a membership program for alumni of Canadian universities other than the U of T, Although I’d like to speak to a member of their archery staff and tour their facilities before I put money on the table. As far as I can learn from their website ( http://www.utoronto.ca/hharcher/index.html ), they do provide equipment and training though. I’ve been researching ranges now for a few months, and so far they are my best bet when I take into account the necessary commuting and my budget. Of course, if any other Canadians on the board know of a range close to Toronto that I’ve missed, I’d love to find out. There is also an outdoor range at Seaton park, right next to the Ontario Science Centre, but you have to provide your own equipment, and since it is an unsupervised range there are no training options available.   And, well, winter IS coming so I am not sure if that range will even be open once the snow falls. Hope that helps! Sabrina

Response:

Thanks for the info Sabrina!  So Hart House is the *only* indoor range?!?? I’m surprised.  I thought there would have been at least 2 or 3.  It’s more than I intended to spend and so, like you, I’d want to check the place out thoroughly to see what we’d get for that kind of money.  If you do come across any other alternatives be sure to post (and of course I’ll do the same).  Cheers -Jon.

Jon, I emailed the head archery coach at Hart House last night. I will keep you posted! But yes, so far Hart House is the ONLY indoor range I know of in the city. Sabrina

Response:

Thanks again.  And please do keep me (and everyone else here) posted.  If there are more options, I’d like to know about them.  Hart House is more expensive that I’d like.  Cheers -J.

Jon, Received a response last night. The gist of it that they are still deciding what they are going to do with regards to registration in the Winter, but that for the fall at least, they have all the students they can take. He doesnt anticipate a problem though If i want to sign up in January They did say though that I could drop by anytime during club hours to tour the facilities, and that pretty much any type of bow can be used/provided. Now I just have to make myself wait two months! Sabrina

Sabrina, You’ve got to be in Eastern Canada, since your ISP is Rogers.com. Is this right? Only reason is that I’m in western Canada. I wanted to just kind of get the feeling of outdoor winter 3d shoots in your neck of the woods. We got one coming up here in November. It’s flat land 3D but I’ve been told that it’s fairly a challenge to complete. It’s spread over about 15 hectares, give or take.  Oh BTW I’m just outside of Vancouver. Cheers, Darrin

Darrin, Definitley eastern Canada, I am in Toronto. I have actually only done 3D shoots during the summer here, and even still I have only done it a few times when I staffed at a summer camp that had archery. I enjoyed it alot, and would love to do it more frequently, but first I am working on finding a regular place to shoot indoor OR outdoor here. It was a very small 3D range, since the camp had some very small campers, but I found that having to shoot around terrain obstacles added to the challenge, and the hike to various targets was as much fun as the shooting!
