Default Son wants to take up archery

My son wants to take up archery and I don't know anything about it. He bought a good bow from the Les Schwab guy but needs to get arrows and a release for him. What should I be looking at? He's about 6'00" 160lbs. and fifteen and a half. Maybe another inch of growing but hasn't started filling out yet.

Thanks,

Steve

Bow is a Hoyt magnatec ZR200. With sight, balancer and quiver. Do you use the same arrows for practice and hunting but change out the tips? Think it was 60lb. pull also.

you need to figure out his draw length, then get some arrows cut to length, and set the poundage on his bow. The first step is making sure the bow will adjust to the right draw length and poundage, lighter is better to start off with you can always turn it up as you become comfortable with the weight. You most likely can take the bow to your local sporting goods store or hunting store and they will have an archery department with someone that can get you pointed in the right direction as well as set up the bow for you. Hope this helps

you can use the same arrows, but what I do is buy some cheap carbon ones for practice or 3D shoots because I loose them, I am by no means an expert at this stuff but hope it helps.

I would think if the shop can get you setup with lengths and a couple arrows to start with, you can order the rest off of cabelas. Having an archery shop help you out is the way to go, they setup many every day and easier than using guess work that you read online haha. I would think setup and adjusting it wouldn't be much,but best to be setup correctly when he first starts.

Side note, wish my wife would tell me to order more stuff on cabela's....
