Archery Reminder

Local hunters and others participating in archery are reminded that sending arrows and other projectiles over streets and across property lines is considered Deadly Conduct (Texas Penal Code, Section 22.05).  Archery ranges should be equipped with some form of backstop to prevent errant arrows from traveling too far beyond the target.  Public accessible areas like neighborhoods, walkways, or trails should be at least 150 yards from all possible trajectories of an arrow.
