First off, if the moderators feel this isn't the right place for this thread feel free to correct/move.
Alright fellas, I just joined the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and after a pretty long wait they finally connected me with a little. I asked that they would pair me with someone that truly liked the outdoors and was willing for adventure (and if he also liked archery that would be more than perfect!) Low and behold he wants to learn archery/hunting!
Im not sure if you all know what the program is or what it stands for, but basically it sets up younger kids with a mentor that they can call their big brother and hopefully learn some life long lessons along the way. In my particular case my little (kid they paired me with) has never had a dad in his life and his mom thought this would be a great opportunity for him.
The reason for posting this thread is I'm first wanting to get him a bow and ease him into the sport of archery, hunting, and whatever else he would like to do. The only problem being, is the big (me) isn't supposed to buy him anything of any real value and a new bow would definitely fall into that category. Soů if anyone has an old bow out there just collecting dust (or any other hunting items in general) this would be a perfect way for it to get some use. He is turning 12 in a few months and is in the 5th grade, so if you think the bow/gear you have may fit him it would be more than appreciated!
