I have flung a few arrows down range at different events, with very limited success, My 12 year old son has relay gotten into shooting and hunting and has asked for a crossbow for several years. I told him no that when I could afford it I would get him a compound bow. Bob has Developmental Coordination Disorder, compounded by ADD. I have watched him struggling with compound bows at scouting and 4H events.
I reconsidered and ordered him a cheap 150 LB crossbow, which I have not even revived yet. The reviews stated that the bolts that come with the bow are worse than worthless, and some reviews mention some sort of lubrication for the string. I have no idea what kind or size bolts to get or, string protection.
Could some one please guide me to some beginners information.
