Dad spent $21 to restring an old bow, hoping this one would be powerful enough for Rebecca to hunt with. Dad’s bow is too large, and the other bows we’ve been given do not have a high enough draw weight for hunting. Unfortunately, even with the new string, this old recurve bow doesn’t have the oomph for hunting. According to Becca and Dad, it doesn’t even have enough oomph for target practice.
Rebecca was disappointed. Guess she’ll be just watching again this year. We wish we had the money to buy an appropriately-sized compound bow for her, but TKD and her new violin (to be posted soon) have taken precedence in our budget. Maybe next year we can pursue the hunting bow in addition to the violin bow?
