    The equipment will stay with the Spring 4-H so that those who come and go will not take it with them and so others can use it too.

    You will have many kids that struggle with 10#. You'll have 15 year olds that can't draw 40#.

    I have to turn most of our Genesis bows way down for most of the beginners to shoot them.

    Also, the recurves and Genesis bows are great for fitting a wide range of shooters. We have some donated compounds that are not very adjustable and only one or two kids can shoot them because the poundage is relatively high and/or the draw lengths are just too long for all but a couple of the teenagers.

    I have had older PSE and Bear 70#, 30" DL bows donated before that no kids can shoot. I gladly accepted the donations and sold the bows on AT and bought other needed items with the $.
    I plan on getting the genesis or low # recurve if we have to buy any... or when we have to buy them.

    BTW you're awesome with the ideas! keep'em comin!!

    we are going to use the local shop for indoors (20yrds) but when we start practicing outdoors... well I don't know.... hoping to maybe raise enough money to by some or learn how to make them.

    I have 19 kiddos! some have quivers, some don't. Each kidd that is shooting, has to wear proper saftey eqiupment, i.e. arm guard and quiver. The program... is actually a year round program, just like how we have different types of tournaments. 4H shooting sports is a national organization. I've just started with the archery disciple at my local club. I'm the only one certifited to teach and be with the kids at an event, until I get some more parents certified. So the program will go on as long as I have intrest.

    There is a guy on AT (I don't remeber his username) that sells the target bags with a target face on them. All ya gotta do is go down to the local Goodwill store and ask em for all the clothing there gonna throw out. If you use jeans and stuff with metal buttons take those off before stuffing the bags. Old blankets work the best. Stuff them bags full and so up the tops and you got some sweet bag targets for shooting outside at a fraction of the cost...

    Thanks Ben!!! Wrist slings are much easier to learn on with a compound. I'll let you know if I need some!

    you have all the free target filling you could possibly ever need, stop and ask a farmer, they will gladly let you take it......TRUST ME......

    just buy some empty target bags......

    the other option is that they burn the stuff......
