    i miss my bow but a pretty major injury put it to an end, i was using a 70lb buckmaster compound. to give you an idea of the power it put an arrow all the way through a holden kingswood wreck.

    Massey archery club is probably closest to you and is a Field archery club (3D targets and the like). They also have a kids club that runs Wednesdays from 4.30pm. Last one for the year is next week (I take my son to it).
    There are a selection of archery shops around town and their pros and con have been discussed before.
    If the final goal is to hunt, then get a compound bow as the learning curve is a lot quicker.
    Me, I like a nice recurve bow . . .

    How old and how strong is he? I brought a 30lb compound bow for my 10 year old girl from Archery Direct 5 years ago now. It did not take long for her to gain strength and move up in weight
