Last month my niece was the lucky winner of the TGMM youth bow giveaway. When I first showed her the bow, arrows, and armguard she was just silent for a few minutes while she looked everything over, then she looked up and told me to go get my bow too, so we can shoot!


Last night we just shot at some clumps of grass and dandelions but this evening I set up a hay bale with some balloons on it for her. I was surprised how much she has already improved from the first session, she was able to do a good job of keeping the arrow shelved during draw and has no problem letting em rip!

Her first balloon pop, she was pretty impressed!

Check out how well that little armgaurds fits and as well as the cresting on her bright chartreuse fletched arrows.

Kids are funny though, after one particularly good round I applauded her on how tightly grouped her arrows were, to which she responded "hey uncle Clay, hold this and watch how fast I can run" ..... lmao :lol: :lol: :roll:
