Re: Need help with youth archery set-up
Fred, You have not offended any one. The kids are 10, 12, and 15 here, with the boy being the oldest. Ive had them shooting .22's since they were too young about 5. They have all enjoyed the .22's and when they inquired about the bigger stuff, I introduced them gradually. The boy has shot everything... and even has the "kiss" from the -06... but he keeps asking to shoot it all. The girls will comfortably shoot my Hi-Point Carbine (.40 S&W) and they don't mind it at all.. I thing the "Bark" of the .243 scares the 10 year old.. but she doesn't mind if some one else is shooting it.
Any way.. they have all expressed going out into the field with me.. the girls have hounded me to take them to hunter safety... The youngest is an avid angler, the middle one is the "gun smith" / "reloader" and the oldest just likes to waste my ammo.
I like the idea of the camera, to get them use to being out there.
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
