    I'm 19 and started shooting bows at age 16... I started out with a PSE Bruin, and same with my little brother who is 12. He just got a newer Bruin also. They are very easy to use and have a low poundage. Most Archery shops offer a full package with, sights, rest, and quiver. They are also fairly cheap! Good luck with you sons!

      You don't say how old they are. Regardless the best solution is to go to a Mathews pro-shop for advice. The pro will measure his draw length and evaluate the lad's strength to choose the right bow. Mathews makes several models that are excellent for kids and teens. Did that for my daughter and she loves the bow. Google Mathews, go to the website and there is a locater for your nearest Pro-shop. Nothing is more defeating than trying to shoot a bow that is too heavy or does not fit.

        BTW I have owned many bows. Mathews is my all time favorite. So far have bagged 8 deer and 1 Turkey with my current bow.

          Take him to a range or local archery shop and see what he feels comfortable with. Most people working there can help you with any more further questions. www.huntersfriend.com might even help.

            I bet the third son turns out to be a fisherman.

              Diamond bows have the largest draw lenght adjustment of any bow on the market. As the boy gets older you can increase the draw length.

                    The brand of bow is really going to depend on preference and price, as for draw length I started out with a 45lb draw when I was 16 it. Most bows pull weight is adjustable, so I would go with something in that wieght class. I was able to harvest a mule deer at 40 yards no problem with that wieght. My bow is a hoyt and I love it.

                        A parker Buckshot or a PSE Deer Hunter would be a good starter bow. But you should take him to an archery pro shop before you buy him a bow.
