When he is at full draw and the bow has let off the arrow ony stick out about 2" He still needs a little help sometimes.

Where did you get the "half-pint" bow?
Dick's Sporting Goods a few years ago. It is a good bow to start with

http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4007044 - They have them in Melville
I bought better arrows and a better wrist guard. He likes it so I will invest in a better bow as he gets older and outgrows this one.

I was interested in taking my kids there. What is the cost of membership?
Varies, if you do "work days" it'll offset some cost.

I just joined Suffolk Archers.
Is anyone else here a member?

It is a cool place. 20 acres of woodlands in Huntington. 1 1/2 mile walk up and down terrain if you shoot all the points. 3d and paper targets.

I was just talking with a friend about it today. I used to be a member a few years ago but didn't renew. It's a great place but heard there is a waiting list for membership now. I credit my first Long Island buck to the training time I put in there. I had a buck walk in front of me just like cable run deer target. I knew exactly where to aim to put one right in the boiler room because of that target.

Now is the time of year they figure out which members are not returning and how many new members can be admitted. Act now if you want a chance at getting in this year.

Went with Perimedik on day, great place - I keep saying I should join.

The membership officer walks you through the property and takes a deposit if you are interested. One other prospective member got the tour with me.
