  • GRACIES BIRTHDAY BOW

    Gracie got her new starter bow for her Birthday today.A week early,but she was thrilled.She was a little disappointed at first because she couldn't draw it back,but after an hour in the hot sun she was determined and finally was able to get the hang of it somewhat.I have no doubt that she will be really good at archery if she keeps with it,and I think she will.I know her form and technique aren't perfect,heck she's only 6.I was just happy to see the excitement on her face.She has as plenty of time to learn.Look out crows,lol!!!

    I 2nd Limbhanger...It's GREAT that you Got her a Bow...Her Form doesn't look bad at all to me. She is so precious, Dacota shoots when I do sometimes and she's Not bad really but Like Gracie...I love to see her face when she shoots because They do look determined to get it done lol...Gracie looks to me like she is dialed in on a Crow now lol

    Thanks
    Thanks for the comments guys.She was begging to try my crossbow,thats why she got it a week early,lol.She loved it after she saw what she could do with it.I told my daughter when she agreed I could get it for Gracie that she could keep it at my house and I would teach her and watch over her when she used it.But Gracie begged to take it home with her,she was proud of that bow.

    Awesome!!
    That is so awesome D!! It is so important to introduce kids to this kind of stuff at this age. If you get her interested in hunting, fishing, sports, etc..most likely she will steer away from all the negative stuff out there....I think her form looks good by the way!!

    Again..That's Great she Loves it already, Hopefully it will grow on her and speaking of your Xbow...Did ya watch the Video? I am referring to the Part about keeping your fingers away from the rail!!! I looked at the Enforcer Myself but have the Tornado and I'm thinking the stock on the enforcer had the finger guard as well...Just be Careful!!! Hate for you to damage that pretty trigger Finger...You Know!! The 1 you was pointing at me when that Turkey flew over the trees while I was standing on mine lol..Or was it when I was picking up beard strands? LOL

    Yeah I watched the video and heard a horror story or two that makes me pay attention,lol.I never was interested in bows until I got this one and then Gracies.Now I want one like Gracies,except the adult version.Parker has a lot of nice ones out.What do you think about diamond bows?

    Diamond makes a great Bow...Just a spin-off from Bowtech...Like Reflex is of Hoyt and Mission is of Mathews ETC...I wouldn't think twice about owning a Diamond myself...I Loved my Bowtech and wish I still had it...Xbows are deadly and Fun but it's just not Bowhunting to me...I have took deer both ways and the Xbow felt like I was cheating..I know it's legal but I Miss my Compound...My issue that needs a tissue LOL is when The weather cools, My Shoulder kills me!! It has hurt so bad in the early morning hours of Archery season that I just couldn't pull my bow back...I'm not a little guy and was only pulling 63 pounds but even that hurt...I'm gonna stick with the Tornado this season I think and see how my shoulder feels this year...BTW, ...There was this 1 time in a turkey blind and wasn't much happening as far as Turkeys and......... never Mind LMBO!!!

    Diamond
    Diamond makes a really good bow D...I know a 13 or 14 year old girl that has killed a few deer the past couple seasons with her Razor Edge. I have shot their main line bows the past few years and they are pretty awesome. I do not own one but all I have heard was good. There flagship bow right now is the Dead Eye which I love b/c it models Bowtech's previous flagship 'The Destroyer' which was one of my all time favorite bows. I love the Dead Eye though...

    razors edge
    DCB I was looking at the razors edge myself.Looks like a great bow.I'm going into this blind,I know nothing about bows.So I'm sure I will be posting a ton of questions,lol.I will probably go thru deer season with the crossbow,I do love it.It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. I just think it will keep Gracie interested if I learn right along beside her.

    Like DCB stated, The Razors Edge is a AWESOME Bow because you can Grow into it...It's pretty much universal so the user can get several years out of it...It grows with you I guess you could say...My taxidermist got his son 1 and I was impressed with this Bow.

    Thanks
    Thanks.I don't know who enjoys it more,Gracie or myself.The bow is something Gracie and I are learning together and we both love it.Makes it twice as rewarding when you have someone to share it with.
