My 13 year old niece got her first bow buck on Sat. Despite the fact she had a crossbow made available to her she refused because she wants to be a bowhunter. She used a real bow and arrow and had to practice all summer to get up to 40 Lb draw and made a 10 yard double lung shot. She is a bowhunter
Last year she killed a giant doe with her bow set at 35 Lbs.
All it takes is a commitment to being a bowhunter and lots of practice and throw excuses to the curb.
