YOUTH BOW

5 posts in this topic

Just curious what everyone has started their kids out on. Is there any good reason to start a kid with a recurve rather than a compound? Is there any good reason to start a kid with a compound rather than a recurve?

I have a left handed 8 year old and I'm just not too sure what I should do. He has shot before but he has been trying to shoot with a right handed bow. I want to end that so that he can learn to shoot the way he is supposed to since he is left eye dom.

Any advise would be helpful.

I started my oldest son out when he was 4 with the bear brave bow, he has now moved up to the warrior and the youngest has started on the brave, they are nice little compounds that they can pull back, I have also made them each longbows out of hickory. So they shoot both styles compounds and longbows. and love every minute of it,

My son has a Brave bow but I bought that before I realized that he was left eye dominant and they don't make the brave for a lefty.

Diamond makes a great youth bow the Edge. A friend bought one for his 9 year old. He shoots 38 pounds, but he is pretty big for 9. The bow has a lot of adjustment so he can grow in to it. I see him shoot a ground hog a 30 yards with it.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
