    Wondering how many of you have kids into it and how that all came about. Did you push them into it? Coax them? Or did they just naturally want to do what you are doing? My son is 5. I'd love for him to one day be shooting side by side with me. Maybe a little premature but for christmas I bought...

    A few years back, I received this little Samick Angel recurve from TT member Matt Potter when my grandchildren were very young. They've all grown into bigger bows, so it's time to pay it forward. The first TT member to message their mailing address to me will receive this little bow at no cost...

    Short vid of my ten year old shooting. He's shooting well in a large part because he learned proper form from the get go and I gave him decent tuned equipment to learn with. If your kid has a real interest an inexpensive lLF riser is a great investment - SF axiom limbs are good and cheap I've...

    Here are my two daughters shooting. This is my eldest, Amy (5 years old) I had to help her a bit to keep her on target. The finger on her elbow is there to remind her to draw back properly. She is holding the draw weight herself. This is my youngest, Ivy (3 years old) This is her first time...

    My son is 11 (12 in November) he has shot 3 deer with a rifle and has been deer hunting for 5 years now. He wants to start bow hunting, he doesn't want to use a compound, he had one but says it's boring. He shoots his recurve pretty well and should be close to 35 #'s by deer season. Plan to set...

    Hello all, my kids have recently shown interest in archery so I bought them a cheap $20 bow set. What types of things would you suggest to have them focus on while learning that can keep them from bad habits later on? Bow is a small recurve neither of them seem to struggle to bring to full draw...

    Henry has outgrown his longbow and his arrows. Now Papa (that's me) and daddy (Jason) are designing a three piece longbow/curve for him to grow with. BTW he's 4 in a couple of weeks. I think carbon arrows are in the design also. Any suggestions on carbons for a 4 year old? Mike

    I have shot now this spring at 3 different locations. Two of the three had the stakes set up for re-curve and long bow shooters 15 yards or less for all 30 targets. My question is do any of you shoot in other classes to increase the challenge. I'm thinking of shooting in the hunter class, I...

    I know its not strictly 'trad' but I'm considering buying an original Mathews Genesis bow for my nine-year old son (Alfie). Any pro's or con's with this bow when used by children? Any arrow recommendations? Regards, James.
