I'am interested into getting into bow hunting and get my young kids into hunting. In Mn. the rifle season is to short. My kids shot a bow during a open house and at a booth was tring to inform people how safe archery is in schools. Kids acually injoyed shooting there bows. They had me thinking big time into getting a bow for them and for myself. Been out searching the last few weeks and Im driving myself insane figuring out what bow should I buy. For my kids I would like one that they may use for hunting if they are interested, which they are. Its intimidating trying to pick out bows and arrows. Anything would help. thanks

the best advice I can give you is to go to a sporting goods store like Bass Pro and try out the bows and talk with the personnel. I went to the Springfield MO store and spent a total of about 4 hours there trying bows and looking and watching customers. Finally I decided on the Diamond Black Ice package. Check out my profile for pics in Huntin' Camp.
Good Luck

I use the fred bear game over, shoots fast, light, quiet, smooth and most of all afordable, got mine for $470 but basspro has them for $430, and i prefer carbon arrows rather than aluminum because they are quieter and faster is you ask me.

Main thing is to find a bow that fits.  I personnally shoot a mathews with carbon arrows.  They seem to fly faster and straighter with less noise.  As far as the kids there are several good childrens' size compound bow.  I would find something that they can use to learn on. Don't drop big money on their first bow.  Big thing is to learn and have fun doing so. Good Luck

  What i did in the beginen when i was learning to shoot a bow was to hang milk jugs off a cloths line with fishing line.  walk off 2 or 3 differant yard sites then practice.

I bought my grandson a Mathews Genesis, and I can shoot it with him. It would be a good choice at a cheap price until you figure out if you're going to like archery. I hunt with a Mathews LX, and I really love the smooth speed of that bow.
