Well my 9 year old is obsesses with hunting, took him squirrel hunting and deer hunting this year, and now he wants to go with a bow. He doesn't have the strength or size to shoot a compound like me, so i was wanting to get him a crossbow. Figure i wouldn't mind spending some money on something decent, but i need it to be extrememly light weight. I had a Barnett Buck Commander for a couple months last year and ended up selling it because it was just too heavy, and switched to a compound. Any advice on a good xbow that will last a while? I have a 3 year old daughter that i'm getting in the woods as well.
