Shooting a bow in Tauranga

Hi, where can I go shoot compound bows in Tauranga? The local archery club has a 60 pound limit on the poundage. I shoot a 70 pound and a 80 pound bow. Any ideas will be very welcome.

Have you asked what the reason is for such restrictions.A number
of people seem to resent the shooting of big poundage bows.
Just make up some targets of your own and do your own thang.

It'll be due to target damage or ability to safely stop the arrows

Maybe also to limit how flat a bow can shoot??

Good to know. Maybe wind back your bow to 60 when you go there and have a different sight to bolt on when at that poundage?

Bit of a pain, but an option...

Hi, thanks for the replies. I found a actual bow hunting club about 30km drive Tauranga, I joined up and can go shoot there anytime. So all is good.
