re: Question for the OB dads


I was thinking the over all length would be too much of a hassle because he's kinda short for his age.

No he's right handed. Thanks for the offer though. The barnett Banshee is 34" and the Bear Brave 3 is 26".

re: Question for the OB dads


my son is right handed but left eye dominant so he shoot his rifle left handed.

he will have to do the same with a bow.. i may be interested in it.

Eta: thought it was a youth bow.. the PSE Nova is a full size bow, right?

Not necessarily, I left eye dominant, shoot guns left handed, but I learned on a right handed bow so thats how I shoot my bow.

That Bear Brave looks like a solid choice. I got mine this one after this piece of junk fell to pieces after about 20 shots. He was about 5 and didnt have a problem pulling it back. Also he has a recurve made out of pvc. If you are interested in it I will post a pic and give you dimensions but its shoots just as far as the compound does.

I got my 4 year old a little bow from Simmons that cost about 30 clams. It's not a compound bow but it's not a toy either. I can make it chunk an arrow about 60 yards. Him about 1/2 that. It's similar to the one in tenfoes picture. Perfect imho

Thanks, I'd appreciate it. The Banshee may be too tall for him right now. However, I had not seen the Scout. Though it's a little longer than the Brave 3, its got a lower draw weight

My 8yr old has one of the ones like posted on the first page. Hard for him to handle it because of how long it is.

re: Question for the OB dads


Here is that homemade recurve. You will have to excuse the gump decor but it is 1/2 inch pvc 41 inches long with a saw cut in the end for the string. Handle is pipe insulation and quiver is 1 1/2 x 12 long with a pipe cap on the end. Arrows are 3/8 dowel rod with a saw mark in the end to notch it and the tip is a pencil eraser. It might not look like much but it will fling an arrow

re: Question for the OB dads


It's always been my opinion that you're more likely to waste your money buying cheap toys that inhibit their chance of success. Whether it's a BB gun, Fishing reel or a bow. Buy something that'll actually function properly and teach them how to use it and they'll enjoy it. Set them up to fail and they'll get frustrated and go play Xbox.
I bought my son a PSE Spider compound, sights and release at six. He started out shooting at balloons in my shop at about 5 yds, now he's 17 and prefers bow hunting over rifle hunting.

Also enjoy it while you can they grow up real fast.
