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.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
