Default I have to brag on my 4 year old.

Today I took my daughter to her first archery tournament at Archers for Christ in Paris, TX. She shoots traditional and came in 3rd in the Jr. Trad Eagle class. Ella is 4 years old and very proud of her trophy. She scored 84 on 20 targets. Daddy came in 4th and didn't win a trophy but I think this was the best 3D shoot I have ever been to.

Huge congrats to the young lady. A few more years and she can show daddy how to shoot pigs.

What is her setup. I have a 5 year old chomping at the bit but I figured she wasn't old enough to pull anything back.

She is shooting a Bear 1st shot I got from Amazon. 8-10 lbs draw weight. I got some youth wooden arrows that shoot better than the fiberglass ones. Had to serve the string and put on a nock point. The arrows don't stick in the target too well and we scoot up pretty close but she can handle the bow fine.

Good to read men and kids both enjoying traditional style bows. My son is 7 and shoots a recurve too. Good job and congratulations.

Bisch, I think you and your longbow were whacking and stacking African animals when this post came up.

Well yaaa you had to be proud dad. I suggest 1/4 " shafts from three rivers. The make points and knocks in 1/4" also . I don't think they make a taper tool in 1/4" though. So you have to do that yourself. Trial and erra. Shafts are reasonable . Making matched taclkle for the little folks is the most difficult. Deb is 4-8". Lol ask her arrow makers. Arvin
