Traditional Longbows for Kids

Recently, I’ve had many customers ask me about traditional longbows for their kids.  Longbows are simple and real easy to shoot, provided they are the proper draw weight.   It’s not fun for a child to try to pull and shoot a longbow if it’s too hard.   They won’t be very accurate and their confidence will suffer.

My grand daughter just out grew her kids Bear fiberglass bow.  Her Bear bow belonged to her mom (my daughter).   It’s close to 45 years old and still works great, however my grand daughter was ready for a step up.

I had a new English style longbow in my inventory and let her try it.   Boy, she just loved it.   It’s her favorite bow to shoot and she’s very accurate with it.   It’s just the right draw weight.  It’s 35# @28″ and 64″ long.

As she grows, this bow will grow with her.   She isn’t drawing it back fully yet, so I made her shorter arrows for her draw.

Here’s the best part…as she gets stronger and taller, she can still use the same bow, but will only need longer arrows.

So, for the investment of $150, these lighter English longbows are perfect for young archers.    Watch this video of my grand daughter shooting the English longbow and see how accurate and comfortable she is.

I am so proud of her.

My workshop and finished arrows

I just finished a couple of dozen arrows for one of my customers and he stopped by my workshop to pick them up.   While he was there, he snapped a picture of me, proudly displaying my handiwork.  I really enjoy working in my little shop.  It’s always nice to chat with my customers and explain how I make my archery equipment.

Tomahawk Archers Public Shoot

Tomahawk Archers Public Shoot

Today, I went out to Tomahawk Archers in Temperance, Michigan.  I always have a great time out there.  That is a great archery club.  The people are real nice and treat me well.   It’s a great group out there that run the club.  First rate!  It’s located in southern Michigan and very close to the border of Ohio.

I bring all my longbows and arrows and set up a table to sell my handmade goods.  I bring my teenage grandson and have a wonderful time.  They have a guy at the club who hand paints the targets and they are a work of art.   Almost too nice to shoot at.   Each month they have a different theme for their targets.   They even have a “dinosaur” shoot for the kids.   It’s a great place for the whole family.

The club has public shoots every month.  I take my daughter, grandson and granddaughter in the summer and we all have a great day out there.  My daughter and granddaughter like to shoot and my grandson helps me to sell my merchandise.

Today was good day…I sold a longbow and took an order for 2 dozen custom arrows.   Time to get back to the workshop and get started on those arrows.
