Bows and arrows and boys!

Ross has really been wanting to buy the boys bows and arrows for the last couple of year.  This year I relented.  Zane is old enough to at least try it and Zachary actually enjoyed trying this sport – I think.

These are not compound bows just those plain beginner bows with a 15 pound pull.  Remember learning how to shoot a bow and arrow in high school gym class?  I do.  Thought it was kind of fun but I definitely need some practice.  I could not shoot the darn thing. 

First you have to demonstrate the “how to” and give a few rules.  04-08-12 bow and arrows 01 04-08-12 bow and arrows 02 And remind them to WAIT to go get the arrows until they are all shot and no one is aiming at you. 04-08-12 bow and arrows 03 04-08-12 bow and arrows 04 04-08-12 bow and arrows 05 04-08-12 bow and arrows 06 04-08-12 bow and arrows 07 It was also a little harder with Zane as he is left handed and we had to let him try it with both hands and see what worked.  Well, what worked was either side!  04-08-12 bow and arrows 08 The temporary target.04-08-12 bow and arrows 09 04-08-12 bow and arrows 10 04-08-12 bow and arrows 12 04-08-12 bow and arrows 14 What happened?  It missed!04-08-12 bow and arrows 15 04-08-12 bow and arrows 17 04-08-12 bow and arrows 18 04-08-12 bow and arrows 19 04-08-12 bow and arrows 22Success.  04-08-12 bow and arrows 24 I think it will be fun to see how they can progress this summer.
