    Speak Up! - View Question #21907

    printer friendly version

    Question: I was wondering if it is legal to shoot archery in your backyard, assuming there is a fence around the yard to act as a protective barrier and you are shooting into hay bales.

    Answer: Arizona Revised Statutes reveals only a mention of archery in four places: A.R.S. § 17-301, § 17-601, § 17-621 and § 9-461.05 and these laws do not place any limitations on archery. In reviewing a variety of municipal codes, archery was not generally prohibited and appeared to only be prohibited in city parks. This doesn' t mean its perfectly legal everywhere, however; it would be prudent to determine both the county and municipality and review their codes and ordinances for guidance. Also, if the backyard is within a homeowners association there could be a regulation effecting archery.

    Archery in your back yard ought be just fine. Be safe! Enjoy a good sport. In regards to it being dangerous... so is walking across the street if you don't watch for traffic. Shooting skeet while drinking beer? Please review a few of the effects of alcohol and then determine if you want someone standing next to you drunk and holding a shotgun.

    I think that it is legal to target practice with a bow and arrow in your back yard. As long as you are using common sense and do not shoot the neibors dog or cat it should be all right, also the home owners association should have a say on the subject. If your yard is big enough it should be alright to do sd.

    I would contact the city and police first and then set up if they said it would be ok. if not, I wouldn't because archery is potentially dangerous.
