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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
