Help teaching daughter to shoot crossbow
Over the past year my daughter has expressed an interest in hunting this fall. I'm not sure she is ready yet, (she's only 8) but I am going to at least bring her with me a couple of times. Here is my issue. I am trying to teach her to shoot a crossbow I have. It has a scope and is perfectly on, but she can't seem to hit it. I have her shooting off of sticks in a seated position and the target isn't more than 8 yards away.
Any hints or other ideas to get her to shoot better? I have been using the practice makes perfect scenario, but she get frustrated and gives up. I don't want to push her too hard as she is likely to throw her hands up. Help please.
Sorry I posted in the wrong forum first.
