OK, I am now in the market for a xbow for my son

I had posted earlier this year about maybe checking into a xbow for me, that my son would also be able to use. As the summer went along, I came across a terrific deal on a Mathews Heli-M. So, instead of a xbow, I got the new Mathews.

Well Saturday, my son and I hunted out of my blind. We saw some does and, with his approval and excitement, I shot a doe. He was really excited about the shot and even commented on where the Nockturnal nock had impacted.

The shot wasn't the best, but after bumping her from her bed on the initial track, I recovered her this morning. He was mad that I left to track before he got up and he wasn't able to help.

So with that being said, we talked today and he wants his own so that he can hunt next year.

Arrowhead, I'll be in contact after the seasons or before the holidays to see what Santa might need to bring!

The best feeling in the world!

Don't forget to mention that it's for a youth. We always give something extra to help get youth involved. Congrats to you for getting him started. There are many things that compete for hunting time and I know how difficult it can be to get them started.
