yea i haven't worked with youth bows. my son was like 14 or so when we got him a bow and was big enough to handle a adult bow if not the weight. got him a pse deer hunter. not a lot of $$ and is a good starter bow. i've shot it and it shoots good. questions to ask is what is the range in poundage and how much draw adjustments
cool. remember "perfectpractice makes perfect". start him shooting with proper form and technique, don't let him develop bad habits.
most states have a minimum of 40 lb draw to be legal to hunt with. 40 doesn't sound like much but until he gets his muscles trained, it is. be sure to have him not push the weight to fast cause he can hurt himself. oh very important, never ever dry fire a bow. never shoot it without an arrow in it.
