The lost art of the recurve bow.
So I have been having trouble helping Santa figure out what to get Bug for Christmas. The kid got her rifle last year and she is a crack shot. Problem is that Santa wanted a gun to last all her life so it is a bit heavy for her little 9-year-old self. So I have been thinking about a weapon more suited to her. We could go with a little light weight rifle or a pellet gun but then it hit me. What about a bow? And not even a compound bow but a recurve? I think she would have a ball with a bow. Not a flimsy one either but a decently made one. So now I am super excited. I am thinking of something with a little less oomph and the sucky cup tips for Monkey but this could be a lot of fun!! What are your thoughts on the recurve?
