Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethecs & Sportsmanship

This was put on by one of the local sportsmans clubs.
They have short seminars on trapping, calling & using scents. fishing rod casting. Laser gun grouse shooting and archery. Plus others.
They had coffee, hot chocolate and donuts in the morning and hot dogs for lunch.
I took my 12 year old grandson Saturday.
This is him shooting the bow.

This was his first shot, He did not get to break the ballon with 3 shots.

He realy enjoyed the bow shooting. So I know what to get him next Christmass.

He looks like he had a good pull in that picture! I got into Archery and love it. I don't hunt but shoot at Targets instead. I bought a 30 lb Comet Re/Curve break down Bow for about $135.00 a while back. I can allway up grade the pull to more weight, 30 lbs is perfect for targets. I went to a class and made my own arrows, string and set the bow string and arrow length for my pull length. My Wife and Daughter also got one and we do it as a family affair. Both are better shots then I am but I am catching up! Lot of fun too!!!Mark H.

Dave, it looks as though those kids are having a good time there. Keep up the good work and with God's help maybe they won't wind up doing drugs or some other dumb stuff..........gfp

I bought my boy,11 yrs old his first bow this year. I knew nothing about bowhunting except that my nephew once shot a deer with a 22 then stuck an arrow in him to make it look good. But back to the point. I finally went to a good archery shop where they fitted him with a bow for his arm length and the right # of lbs for his ability. Costly but worth it. I think lots of folks think you can just go to wally world, buy one and be William Tell overnight.

The Boston Valley Conservation Society that I was a officer in sends 5 or 6 youths to New York DEC Camp every year. This year the grand son gets to go. He will take the Hunter Safety Course while he is there. Also a friend and his wife that come here to hunt are also both NRA instructers and they have a course going on next week end at the BVCS.
