I've never bow hunted, but this year I went to a few hunting shows where I had an opportunity to shoot--and my sons, too. We really enjoyed it. Do you have any recommendations for a starter bow--one for my sons and one for me? They're 11, 9 and 7 years old. My 11 year old might be the only one big enough.

For you I would recomend the PSE BRUTE!!!


Easy to shoot and great performance at a very respectable price.

For the kids I highly recomend you go to parkers web site and see what they have! Also the Pse Chaos and Bear Young gun!!!! High performance rigs

Here is some big advice! Go to local shops look around shoot a bunch and see what YOU like! You may find some 08-09 models which would be alot cheaper! Shootem all and then come one here and tell us what you like

The 11 year old would have no problem fitting into a Hoyt Trykon Jr.

The 9 year old would also probably be ok with it. My 8 year old was boarderline with that model, it was just a little too much bow for him yet.

However the Diamond Nuclear Ice package is very very user friendly for him. Your 7 year old would likely do very very well with it. Get some better arrows with it, as the 3 that come with it are okish at best.

For you, I agree with the above post, hang around a couple of pro shops, talk to the guys there, and develop some preferences.

Athens of course. Why not have the best features of all bows on your first bow right from the start? SRM

In the past I have sold a lot of youth bows, only for the parents to come in and say that the "youth" gave it up! You might want to consider the used market for a while, until you are sure. I am not one to turn a customer down and I have both new and used but as a dad I would consider that myself.
