The closest one is Nock Point in Mountlake Terrace... It's either that or Gun and bow in Kent.
I however would make the commute up to nock point, because one of my good friends is "best buds" with the owner, and I've never been dissappointed with the stuff there...Good prices too, I might add.
Hey - where in seattle are you? North or south?
Send me a PM...maybe we could get together and shoot sometime... I know of a couple trad-only groups tht meet in the South Seattle area weekly.

I'm in Ballard, so a bit north.  I moved here from Chicago 3 years ago.  I used to work for/with Mike Mitten and after reading his book I'm getting back into archery after a long time away (wheel bows and such).  I saw Nock point on Google, so I will definitely go to them after your recommendation.
I would definitely be up to go shoot if you know of a good place.  How about you?  Where are you located?

I'm a bit south, in the Seatac area.
One of the groups I know meets Saturdays in Kent (right next to the ikea) 11-2. I can give you directions if you want 'em. (I'm a regular with them this time of year)
The other meets indoors thursday nights at the north seatac community center (7-10) (I've been going there for 8 years now...), and its a lot of fun. We shoot in the big gymnasium.
(both groups are trad-only) (just so you know).
The Saturday one is free, and the thursday night one costs $8 for drop in (to cover use of the facility)...
Hope you can come out and join us sometime....
