Youth Model Bow

Recommended Posts

hunter322

Anyone have any suggestions on a good youth model bow? My neice is 10 and she has shown interest in getting into archery and my brother is in the market for setup for her. Cost is definatly a factor. Thanks!

The big "C" has youth model Bears completely setup for about 270. Even comes in pink camo for the girls that are just getting into it!

Both of my daughters shoot the Bear Apprentice bows, and I could not be more impressed with them. Insane amount of adjustment in both draw length and poundage, extremely accurate as well. My oldest daughter(12) has the pink camo model and has that puppy maxed out to 50# and it is smoking fast for a kids bow imo. My youngest(11) has the regular camo and has it to about 40# draw so far and she can shoot apples at twenty yards all day long.

Neither one of the girls have shot a deer with their bows yet, but the Magnus Stingers seem to shoot real well out of these bows maybe hitting an inch low of field points.

Good Luck!

The Barnett Vortex is another option for the budget minded. They're about $160 right now at the big C store and the draw weight is up to 45 pounds. I bought one for my son last year an($99 on clearance + another $75 to get everything set up to shoot -- hostage rest, etc., at the local pro shop) and several of our friends started their kids on them. What's nice is it's not such a huge investment before you know if they actually want to stick with it. And some of our friends' kids are still using them a couple of years later and getting ready to hunt with them.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
