<a href="http://www.lehighvalleylive.com/sports/index.ssf?/base/sports-0/1273377986173160.xml&coll=3" target="_blank">The seed to Amanda Cobucci's current lofty national archery ranking was planted innocently a few years ago through a postcard to mom and dad from summer camp in upstate Pennsylvania.

"I told them if they would buy me a bow, I'd be able to shoot better than my dad," said the 16-year-old Cobucci of Moore Township. "My dad hunted with bow and arrow and I wanted to try it. Until then, the only time I shot was once a week each year at summer camp."

"We just found the postcard the other week," confirmed Peter Cobucci, an avid hunter and fisherman, with a laugh. "It's in a little girl's writing. She wanted me to buy her a bow."


Giving Cobucci a bow was like purchasing a piano for Mozart....


That's why she's the second-ranked archer in the nation in the female cadet (ages 15-16) compound bow class.

this is a great story, and follows the line of thinking: If you take your kids hunting, you won't have to hunt for your kids!!

Congrats Amanda!!
