Bow

5 posts in this topic

What is a good bow to buy for a 15 year old kid? I don't want to spend more than $350 with everything. probably looking at 45-55 lbs if possible. If that isn't than 50-60. Thanks

Well there is a lot of good started bows out there for sale but you must now what you are looking for. What I would do first is take your son out to some archery shops and shoot some bows. Then i would find out what poundage he can shoot and what brand he likes and can shoot. All bows can be set up to any one by changing the limbs and cams to fix the draw length. Then you can go on line and start looking but this is just to help you find what you might be looking for. But my-self I stay with the local shops and support them and when I need some thing they have it. When it comes time to upgrade they can take your bow in on casement and help with the new set up. I hope your search is fun and you find what you are looking for. Every one might say name brands that they use but I have been Bow shooting for over 30 years and with the new bows out there they are all about the same but some are lighter than others. so take him out shooting and take your time. Hope you find what he can shoot and he keeps at it practice,Practice makes a good shooter. Well good luck and have a great day.

Good advice. A local pro shop is always your best bet. The worst thing you could for your son is buy a bow that doesn't fit him and isn't any fun to shoot. A local shop can also get him started with a few lessons to get him on the right track right away.

There are many good bows on the market today in your price range that are highly adjustable so he can shoot it for several years to come.

if your around St.Cloud by chance at all go to archery country.There are plenty of bows to look at and shoot. have him try a bunch of them and see what fits him best. theres a range and a hunt simulator there that he can try the bows out. theres good customer service and decent prices.

    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
    • Ever been to Stevens Point or Wisconsin Rapids? 
    •   Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....
    •   Probably no worse then the paper sludge biwaste that was coming out of that plant a few years ago!
    • Well it looks like we got out of expansion is pretty darn good shape. Haula + Tuch and we got a 3rd coming back to us, not bad at all. Tuch is no throw away prospect and could become a heck of a player some day but I feel like we still were able to keep our better prospects and center prospects which is big for us. Sounds like we still might move a D man to clear some cap space so maybe more fireworks to come. 
    • Thanks guys, appreciate the info!
    • Only so many heartbeats, lol.  Probably some study on hummingbirds or something and now the same rules apply to us and our consistent environment filled with healthy choices that are necessities for survival, just like a hummingbirds....  This was probably published by a group of medical providers that want to make you think it doesnt matter if you're lazy, fat, and dependent on "conditioned answers" to life's health and wellness questions and you will seek their "advice" when becoming ill.    
    • i've never done the plastic thing. but i've taken Reb's advice on planting grass, in particular filling in spots and its turned out great. so this is going to really hurt to say this, but Reb really knows what he's talking about when it comes to his lawn. i've also seen pictures.
    •   Right next to the river, no less.  Isn't anyone from the EPA concerned about this?
