wonderin if any of your club courses have stakes for the wee ones?

i see the nfaa has the course markers to be green. any particular shade of green or something that wont get lost in the woods?

personally, i think they should be a little brighter than green especially if you use low profile markers.

Some of the courses I have been on have them....others might. But since I don't shoot up there and don't have any rug rats I never really payed attention to it.

Pee Wees are allowed to walk up to a comfortable diistance in 3d venues. For indoor and field, they will usually shoot from the cub stakes.

NFAA has the stakes being green and the distances being half of what the cub are, no further than 15yards. the PeeWee information is on page 88 of the NFAA constitution and rules.

DCWC does have the Pee Wee stakes, at least on the front side. Only reason I'm sure of that is that Mandy & I installed them. :teeth: I'm reasonably sure the back half has them as well.

:nod: I have just been walking little sarge up half way between the target and the cub stake. He doesn't have the attention span to shoot a full round yet though...got a picture or 2 on my phone on Saturday. May have to post them up if I can find a data cord ...

We have cub stakes, but no pee-wee stakes at Lee county Archers. I just let my 8 year old daughter shoot from 7 or 8 yards, and she's doing great.
She can shoot 56 arrows without breaking a sweat and is scoring about a 200 average. Not bad for 3 months experience, shooting barebow recurve

We let the little guys/gals shot from where they are comfortable. Interestingly, they often pick distances that are pretty challenging.

They also "win" a trophy every time.

Pretty much what I do with little sarge...with my older son, I almost immediately started challenging him, he instantly was having fun and wanting/needing that...my youngest is a whole different animal. He would simply quit if I was to challenge him, so I just let him shoot where he is comfortable...

I just try to make sure they are both having fun...just each has different needs in those areas...

We have Peewee stakes at our range, as a rule of thumb we usually do a 15 yard stake for adult targets 50 yards or longer, 10 yard stakes for 30-49 and 5 yard stakes for 10-29 yards. This way a little one only needs 3 pins--5-10-15 and can get some confidence built up. :)
