ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

Tucked back in the woods of Turner County is an archery course, free to the public.

The 3D, realistic course, run by the Turner County Recreation Department, is on about 15 acres of land.

It opened three years ago and has 11 targets and six stations. Hunters just need to bring their bows and arrows for realistic, safe practice.

"That's the key thing is to give them somewhere to come and practice realistic shots, but be safe about it and so that everybody knows where everybody is when you're out here," said Mike Coker, the Turner County Recreation Dept. Director.

The course is open the first and third Saturday from February through the first weekend in September.

The hours are from 9am until 2pm. It's open to anyone and there's no charge.
