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. And remind them to WAIT to go get the arrows until they are all shot and no one is aiming at you. 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! The temporary target. What happened? It missed! Success. I think it will be fun to see how they can progress this summer.
