Youth Crossbow Recommendations?

My 10 year old daughter currently hunts with a Parker Challenger Youth Crossbow. Of course, Parker is now closed and can't find another one for my 8 year old daughter who wants to hunt now too. I actually like hunting with this crossbow too because it is so light and compact - 5.5 lbs and 31.75 inches in length.

Any recommendations for my 8 year old?? Thanks!

Wicked Ridge Ranger by TenPoint is a very nice bow designed for youth hunters. I held one but never shot it. Very light and short length of pull.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Having one child makes you a parent; having two makes you a referee... Take your kid's hunting!!!

My Excalibur micro 335 is 32 and 1/2 in long and 5.2 lb while it's not a youth crossbow it certainly is small I love it

Don't Tread On Me is what it says and I'll take that to my grave.

We were just on a hunt where they had everyone using Kodabow crossbows. They are made here in the Exton/West Chester PA area and worked great. The stock is adjustable and is an AR-15 stock so they could easily be adjusted to fit everyone very quickly.
