Active or Passive Aiming?

Generally, with Active aiming your sight pin will be in focus and the target will be blurred in the distance.

This method is sometimes used by compound archers who will hold the pin on the target whilst being as steady as possible.


With Passive aiming the target is in focus and your sight pin will be a blur in front of the target.

This is a more relaxed approach allowing the target to be in focus. We’ve found this method works best with an open sight ring.

Zombie Archery Event

In light of the latest Government restrictions we have decided (with a heavy heart) to postpone our New Year’s Day zombie shoot. At this moment in time we think it is the responsible thing to do. 

Our next special Zombie Event is on New Years Day!

These are aimed at getting everyone involved from complete beginners’ to experienced archers from the archery community. We’ve added more sessions, more times, and introduced family friendly sessions.

We have been working hard to make sure your archery experience is fun while closely adhering to COVID safety restrictions.

Sessions last 90 minutes and cost £12 per archer. They are available for 8 years upwards, and all the equipment is included.

All our sessions take place at our private shooting range in West Norfolk. 

Bookings can be made by using the calendar below. Please select the date and time you require. The session time, date and cost is then highlighted below the calendar. Additional people can be added by clicking the time selected again.

Once you’ve filled in all the boxes complete the captcha verification then press submit.

You’ll then be taken through to Paypal for payment. Please note you do not need a PayPal account; just a valid bank card. All payments are non refundable.

**IMPORTANT** If we unfortunately need to cancel due to Covid-19 we will reschedule as soon as possible.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be available on the day.

Prizes will be awarded for the highest score achieved per session.

On arrival at The Quarry you will be taken to a safe zone where you will be given your introductory training session in readiness for fighting the zombie infected.

You will be provided with all the safety equipment needed as well as the necessary bows. Once your archery skills are in place you will be taught where the zombie kill zones are in readiness for leaving the safe zone.You will then enter the critically infected area of The Quarry where you will need to put your archery skills to the test.

Can you locate the zombies and hold your nerve long enough to eliminate them before they eliminate you?

**Our Latest COVID-19 info**

23/2/21 – Following the governments announcement regarding the roadmap for England we will be running archery and axe throwing experiences from 29th March 2021 onwards. These sessions can cater for up to six people from up to two households! 

Please remember it is really important that the number of people visiting us at any one time is kept to a minimum. Therefore, shooting opportunities will be limited and controlled to ensure the safety of everyone.

Below are our Covid-19 guidelines.

On arrival at the car park please leave 5 metres between cars to allow social distancing.

If you have your own equipment, please put your bow together at the rear of your car and leave your bow case etc in your car.

You MUST practice social distancing at all times and maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from anyone who is not in your household.

On arrival YOU MUST clean your hands with the sanitiser provided. This will be labelled and on a table.

Toilets are not to be used and will be locked. Please come prepared i.e. go beforehand.

There is also no first aid kit available; so please come equipped

Spectating is actively discouraged. However, attendance of a parent/guardian (non-participant) or a carer for a disabled archer is permitted. Parents/guardians/carers are limited to one per archer; with social distancing strictly observed while watching the sessions.

You MUST NOT come to archery sessions if you show symptoms of any illness, but in particular of Covid-19. These are highlighted on NHS Direct and include:

  • A persistent and dry cough
  • A temperature

If you are symptomatic, living in a household with a possible COVID-19 infection or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, the guidance is that you should remain at home.

You must notify us should you develop symptoms after attending the archery range.

Each target will be restricted to two archers or one group of archers if from the same household.

All the targets will be placed 4 metres apart which is the distance recommended by Archery GB.

Please shoot at a distance which you are confident at i.e. you can hit. Any arrows which miss the target must be found within one minute. This is so archers are not delayed since sessions will have to adhere to strict timings. Any arrows still missing can be found at the end of the day’s shooting and you will be told where to collect them.

After the session, you should sanitise your hands. All surfaces and Grey Goose equipment that has been touched will be disinfected after the archery session.

We will be providing one free target face for you to keep. We ask that you either re-use this on another session or dispose of at home after use. You may purchase and bring your own target faces to sessions or we will have some target faces for sale.

At the end of the session please remove the target face and place your target pins in the bucket of disinfectant provided.

We kindly ask that once the session is over that you leave quickly so as to allow other archers to start their session. We also ask that you do not congregate and socialise after your session is over.

On leaving the Quarry please close the gate behind you and remember to sanitise your hands as soon as possible. It is recommended that you bring your own personal sanitiser with you.

We hope to see you all very soon. 

Stay safe

Wedding day archery

Used grey goose archery to help entertain my guest during a weekend celebrating my wedding at #langley Grange. The staff made sure everyone was involved getting plenty of time on the targets. All my guest loved it.

Well worth the money. Thank you grey goose
