Title: Archery?
Post by Gmoney on Nov 11th, 2009, 7:29pm

Hey folks, I have a young son 11 years old and I need a recomendation on where to get him some lessons. I dont know a whole lot about archery other than what I picked up in scouts. I want him to get the proper start so he doesnt pick up any bad habits out of the gate.

Don't know a thing about it, but there appears to be a place in Emory:

also noticed a place in Commerce for canned hunts
(I think that's the term, not sure)

Anyway, the range in Emory sounds like it might be the ticket.

Not clear whether you are speaking of target archery or bow hunting. There are hundreds of ranges scattered around. Just about any of them have guys that will be willing to help, especially a youngster. If you think he is going to be interested in bow hunting I`d suggest buying him some books by one of the greatest there ever was, Fred Bear. A good subscription to Bowhunter magazine would certainly be a plus on either account. The articles by such greats as Chuck Adams, Judd Cooney , Ted Nugent, etc. will have him wrapped up in the doubt.
A couple of hay bales or a good target in the backyard is the ticket to consistency . It`s something that needs constant practice and as a plus it provides hours upon hours of good, clean entertainment. I`d also suggest for a youth to use the K.I.S.S. approach with the equipment. You can always work up.....and will. The choices are endless. The techniques are endless. Everything from the good old basic instinct shooting to bows rigged so much they look like they belong in a Star Wars flick.
This is one sport that I would most certainly like to see more of the youth get interested in.

Well Captn, you are certainly right about options. I have found somebody to help get my son on the road to being a safe bow handler. I have acuired him a competition style compound bow with all the bells and whistles. I am sure we will start with simple targets but like anything a young man will get his hands on maybe just maybe he will find his true passion early on in life. A subscription is already on its way. I am a hobby nut and read anything and everything related to what ever it is I am doing at the time and my son is NO different.

Thanks everbody
