    Are you looking for an olympic/field archery type range?

    Any indoor or outdoor archery range is going to be sufficient for recreational shooting or practice at hunting ranges.

    Most archery shops in the area are geared towards the compound and crossgun crowd. Bowie Outfitters in Baton Rouge has a small corner section with traditional gear and has some trad bows that can be shot at their indoor range. I've heard good things about Gotham Archery in Central, but I prefer to shoot outdoors so have not been there.

    Waddill Wildlife Refuge in Baton Rouge has one with a walk up tree stand.
    There are also targets set at different distances with a raised boardwalk so you don't have to get muddy. And styrofoam critters to shoot at. It's really a nice place. At least it was the last time I went there.

    There is/was also a 3-D range through the woods back behind the fishing ponds. I think there is one for traditional bows past the archery range and air gun range on the left.

    Correction: the raised boardwalk is for the air rifle range.
