Ten year old Seth has been having fun with his bow for six years. His dad Chris got him started early and used a simple training tool...keep things fun.
"We can go out in the evenings, shoot some targets, 3d, get close and minimize the chance of him missing, just make it fun for him." says Frame.
Seth really likes the sport and has almost out grown his bow.
"I shoot a Diamond Edge-the limbs on my bow are only up to 35 pounds. Are you about there? Yeah, I'm maxed out." says Frame.
You don't have to be Seth's age to start shooting a bow. In fact, some kids are naturally better shots than their dads, while others are working hard to get there.
Tom Oxely started his son Jared out at an early age.
"My son started shooting at the age of 3, some guys in our bow hunters association group made a long bow and crafted some arrows and he shot 3-d from the age of 3." says Oxely.
Jared Oxely just likes to have fun.
"It's fun to get outside and shoot the 3-d ranges, just have fun when you're not inside on a rainy day." says Oxely.
Keep things comfortable, make the targets hittable, and make them fun. That works for 9 year old Morgan Oxely.
"I like the balloon targets, you just load that end and it pops it. You get the best of both worlds....yep.!" says Oxely.
And that's what it's all about...spending quality time with your kids, having fun, and teaching them a life long sport.
