Looking for a youth bow for my 6 yr old daughter. Cabellas has a decent one http://www.cabelas.com/product/Hunting/ ... t103968180
I haven't used a bow in a very very long time. She got to shoot one at a show a few months ago and did surprisingly well. Anyone here have any experience with the youth bows. I may get one as well if it seems she is getting into it. Thanks

Guess no one's shooting recurves anymore? :) I learned on a progression of plastic and fiberglass and eventually a wooden recurve. Didn't touch a compound bow until I was 16 or so. I'm sure the one you have selected there will be great. I'd get one that has a wide range of draw lengths and draw weights to grow with her as long as possible before you need to get a new one, that'd be the one thing about the one you have linked that might be improved upon. Can't recommend one that would be better, though.

I remember going to a archery shop a little more then a year ago and the guy said he had the last youth bow in the state. They were selling like hotcakes. I believe his were PSE. I have a Matthews Drenaline, about 5 years old. Still a very nice bow. I don't think you can go wrong with the major brands.

I've been looking myself, my kid has a birthday coming up and has been at the local archery club for lessons a few times. Looks like she is not losing interest anytime soon. The instructor at the archery club said since the Hunger Games movie they have been swamped with newbies.

You should look at the Genesis.
http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/produ ... 27.4414430
Universal draw length compound bow. Zero let-off. Adjustable draw weight from 10 to 20 pounds. At 20 lbs of draw weight the Genesis™ has the same kinetic energy as a 35 lb. recurve bow! Available in Right and Left hand. Machined Aluminum components and composite limbs.


Especially if she wants to shoot with the school as this is the bow that is required by NASP. They used to shoot at Choconut on Sundays.
http://naspschools.org/

Although Dicks is showing $220 I think we paid $120 for my sons. I know Montrose Sports has them also. Looking that the NASP site they list the bow as $111 on the equipment page, but that may be for the school only.
