    Default My son needs a new bow

    My son Randy is 10. His grandpa got him a bear warrior 2 bow for his birthday last August. That plunged both of us deep into addiction of archery. We found out that his bow isn't all that good, and not really ment to be upgraded. We put sights on it and a wisker bisquet, and we can't dial in the sights because the ring makes contact with the vanes of the arrows. We checked out the Diamond razors edge and like it alot. I'm looking for some good ideas on raising the $329.00.

    Do you have deposits on aluminum cans where you live? We don't here but I know in Michigan they get like a dime a piece for them. Talk to your friends and relatives and see if your son can collect those to raise money for his bow. He'll appreciate it alot more if he works and buys it himself... Just a thought...

    Keep your eyes on the ground. I saw on the news that a family of 4 found over $1,100 just laying on the ground. Every time they go to Walmart or the mall They just look. If all else fails maybe I can get you a part time job stripping in the same club I do

    The Razors Edge is a great bow to take a little one completely through their growth. I now have the Diamond and Ross bows listed on my website, free shipping and 10% off on accessories bought with Bow purchase.

    The Razors Edge is undoubtedly one of the hottest selling youth/women bows on the market. Even a great starter/turkey/deer bow for lots of men. It is one Hot performer.

    I have 4 Grandsons that someday will be shooting these Bows!

    Have him write a letter to our president explaining his situation! I will glady give up some of my tax dollars toward this. This is a much better cause than what we are doing now! We can take up a small donation toward a certain % to get him started and then he can collect cans, cut grass, do yard work for elderly folks in your community, They always need a hand with their daily chores and such! That is what we always did as kids when we needed money for things. I will give first $5!

    just be up front with the folks and explain to them what he is doing and they will see an American way of interprize and a young man will to work for his desired object
    kids have a way of getting to us especially those that don't want a hand out

    with a little camo paint on his face and old cloths he would look dirty, and pathetic. They would give him money for sure.

    Put a jar or can on your bedside table.

    Every night empty all of your loose change into the jar.

    It takes me a couple of years, but this is how I afford my new bows.

    I did that as my christmas fund until I got married, then my wife stole all my change. Good idea though.

    You might check out the Alpine Micro. This is a powerhouse of a bow for a youth bow and not quite as expensive as the Edge. The bow will drive tacks.

    ...or just 329 to donate a dollar.

    Though I'd rather pitch in extra for you to get him to do yard work for an elderly widow.

    Default new bow

    I started my son with the Parker Challenger. It is the Youth/female bow designed to be upgraded with need. The bow I bought was 40 pound max weight but after he outgrew it I paid a few pennies and got the upgrade to 50 pounds (new string and limbs). The bow looks and performs exactly like mine (Parker Untralite31). The one modification I recomend is getting adrop away rest vice the biscuit. They make several styles that will retain the arrow on the rest until drawn back. This keeps the arrow secure for small shaking hands and with greatly increase the accuracy. My son has since outgrown his bow so I dropped it back down to 40 pounds and fit his sister. Go to parkerbows.com online to find information. I highly recommend this from experience. My son has harvested several deer with his. email me if you have questions.
