I posted in other forum but was recommended to post here. Seems to me a crossbow would be a good way to get a kid into bowhunting. Why are there not any crossbows that really appeal to small kids features? My daughter is small but ready to go hunting. I do not feel should can handle many rifles so I started looking into the crossbow. I have one that I have never even hunted with and used for older kids to take them on their first hunt. It is just too heavy for her and the stock length is too long. All of the ones I look at that are lighter still even have longer stocks. Anyone have any crossbow suggestions for a short arm petite little girl. Afraid I am going to miss the window of her wanting to go and she will loose interest. She sat with me several times last year while I shot deer.

My oldest son is 11, avg size and arm length. He got to fire the new youth model Parker Challenger at the Dixie Deer Classic few months ago and it was perfect for him:

Forgot to mention my five year old son fired the Challenger a couple times and handled it very well. Your daughter will be fine with it and once she fires it, she will be hooked.
