Bow for Son!!

I have been bow hunting for close to 15 yrs. and my son wants to get into it. Soooooo, we went and looked at a Parker Wildfire XP on Sunday. Going rate was 420.00 with everything but arrows at a near be shop that I use. Does anyone have anything to comment on these bows. My son is 15 yrs old with a 28 in draw and can pull around 50 lbs I would guess. I liked the bow myself but wanted to hear from anyone else about it.

It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it!

They make great bows. I'm sure he will be very happy with it.

i have no experience with them but they are a reputable company and people that have them seem happy so try it out.hope you both get to spend some "quality time" together.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Ronn and Joel

Thanks, man he is crazy about getting in the woods. I did not get to bow hunt this year. Had to go to a orthopedic surgeon, and was told that I have a frozen sholder. Painful as hell, was doing physical therapy that did nothing. Will end up having surgery, could not even pull back 25 lbs. anyway, he has shown great intrest, and I will will do all I can to help him out.
