Took the family camping this weekend and the 8 year old grandson came with us. He had been expressing an interest for bows (after all grandpa shoots one) so I got him Centerpoint Elkhorn. If he wasnt in the water he was shooting the bow. It took a couple of days of working with him to break some bad habits wanting to show up but by the end of the weekend he was hooked and starting to see some improvement in his placement. We spent several hours a day side by side shooting our bows. He loves my recurve so has decided that his next bow is to be a recurve like grandpas. This is my 3rd grandson I have taught how to shoot a bow and proud as hell to be continuing the tradition.
