Is it legal to shoot a Bow at a public park?

The park I always go to is completely deserted and was thinking about just target practicing inside the caged up baseball field. There's no houses around, just more dead grass and was just going to shoot from home plate to the mound

    it may not matter if it's legal or not, carrying a gun is legal in some places but you still might have the police called on you and get arrested or it could be like jaywalking illegal but nobody cares. use your judgment see what kind of .people are around and how they might respond do they see you as someone having fun or about to shoot a school up

    Not sure, but it definitely is if you hit someone.

    If a baseball game is being played at the time, I'd say it isn't a good idea.

    Be truthful. You really just want to shoot some squirrels, don't you ?

    Laws vary around the world, you'll need to be more specific.

    No, its not legal. A bow counts as an offensive weapon, so you can't use it in a public place.

    You'd need to check relevant laws for your area. However, in most cases the answer is no.

    As long as you are not aiming your bow at a samaritan, you should be confident unless the cops show up.
