    Yes I agree make it fun for the boy because if he has good experience at a young age he will become an outstanding shot later on.

    This would be great for your son. My son is ten now and he shoots a Mathews Genisus and a Bear Odyssey. Archery is getting big in the schools her in my area. Try a Bass Pro Shop if one is in your area. Good luck with your son and keep him in the outdoors hunting and fishing:big_smile:

    Welcome to the BOC Larry and get him one that is not to difficult for him to shot and let him get out there with you and practice. Make it fun for him.

    Make sure you get him measured for a bow. Proper draw length is critical even for a youth. They outgrow a bow fast. So I'd at least go to a bow shop to get sized. If they don't have anything in your budget then go online. It's a great sport. 3-D tournaments are a super father/son thing to do.
