apache bowhunters on the south end of cols by lockebourne.they hold several shoots throughout the year and public is welcome and on most of the shoots x-bows can be used.log on to thier web-site and you can find a shoot schedule.deleware state park has a public courseup off 229.these are the only 2 i can think of that may/will let you use a crossbow.there may be some other folks on here that know of more.

There is an indoor range in Hilliard called A1 Archery. I dont know for sure but I dont see why they wouldnt let you shoot a cross bow there. Fairfield outdoors in Lancaster and Broken Arrow Archery in Newerk both have similar indoor ranges and both allow cross bows.

There is a nice one in Delaware just north of the Franklin county line off 23. Google ODNR ranges and you can find directions. I have sighted my crossbow there every year. Here is the link:

I was just at the Cardinal Shooting center today. That is a fantastic lay out. Practice range is $5 and the 25 target walking 3d course is $8. Good deal. The practice range also has an elevated deck to simulate stand height shooting. It is sweet!

It is located at the intersection of I-71 and St Rt 61.

I never shot the one at Delaware until this weekend. I like it so much it may become a 3x a week visit.

$8 an hr at A1. $10 for 3D. I was there this past weekend sighting in my crossbow at 22 yards. Thats about the max. distance at targets. I think its reasonable when you compare it to a 45 min drive. Delaware bow range is nice...I just wished I lived closer
