    Question Target shooting at an archery range?

    I shoot a recurve bow at an open archery range (more like a field with some hay-bale targets) in Minneapolis, MN. It's open access (across the street from Lake Calhoun, if you're familiar with the area), out in public. I'm trying to figure out whether it would be legal to shoot a crossbow there as well, and I can't find any information. Finding much outside of hunting laws and restrictions on transporting crossbows is proving to be difficult.

    Does anyone have any insight on this? I certainly don't want to get picked up for firing a crossbow in a public space.

    But I want to fire a crossbow in a public space. (Legally and safely).

    Any thoughts?

    Welcome to the forum. Your local MDNR would be the best source of information. If vertical bows are allowed to be shot there, if would follow that crossbows would too, but I would check with the DNR so that there is no possibility that you would be considered to be "hunting". Some clubs allow crossbows to be shot if the shooter brings his own backstop/target.
