    Your 12 year old son will get bigger and stronger. In my opinion, having instructed numerous youths, some becoming world champions, your son may get two years out of a proper fitting bow even with draw length and draw weight changes.spankbang redtube porn600.me

      Traditional...........my state min # is 35 for deer.
      Kid drawing 24" shooting a 40# @28" recurve is getting less than the legal amount.
      Dunno if any possum cops pay that good attention.

      Compound..........my youngest wants one but has health issues. Surgeon said she won't ever be able to pull enough to bowhunt.

      Some of the kids bow have some zip, harsh draw cycles for what they are.
      Might have to look into an Oneida, as cam/lever bows are the smoothest drawing.
      The Osprey can go 20-40 but the shortest DL is 25.5.
      That might yet be too long for her. Not a cheap bow either.

        Trad.........am thinking about a Samick Discovery riser w carbon shorts.
        That'll get me a 58" hunting rig.
        Can order a set of lighter (wood/glass) limbs and let her mess with it.

          When my son was 9, we bought him a mini kit from Genesis. It was a pretty cool set because it included all the needed equipment (arrows, quiver and arm guard). Now he has a new Barnett compound bow. It is cheaper than Genesis but it's because you have to buy additional equipment like arrows and etc. (my son also claimed he needs a sight for his bow).
          My husband not often takes our child with him to hunt. Nevertheless, my son really enjoys hunting with Barnett.

            Knevity, welcome to the Q&A portion of the site. Obviously we don't have many women members so your input will add an interesting perspective. I'm looking forward to more of your posts.

            Barnett makes some good crossbows. I gave my old one to my son-in-law in hopes he'll get interested in archery. Some crossbows are pretty tough to draw back. Is your son using one of the pulley devices?

                My bad, I didn't notice it was a compound.

                  Honestly, I would not feel handicapped running a smooth bore shotgun for deer out to 125 yards or so. If I had to, it'd be the green/black camo old M500...

                  I had an 835. Older one. It worked fine.

                  Thanks for the heads up about RFC. I just require minute-of-squirrel accuracy and probably wouldn't fit in on that forum.
