I have a young man in my youth group who is just on this side of being a troubled teen. He lost his dad In a tragic drowning accident two years ago. The only thing that the boy has from his dad is an older compound bow that needs a bit of work. I am taking care of the string and the sight but he still needs basic items, like a release, arrows, quiver, etc.

I'm not looking or asking for new stuff, just the stuff you have lying around you don't use anymore. Anything would be appreciated.

How long do the arrows need to be? I have several old aluminum ones laying around if they will help any.

I have a stand i picked up for a kid in need, and the first kid in need (slaughter06) it was decided he wasn't ready for it so I have been holding on to it for another kid in need. After i pm'ed eweisner he said he would like to the boy to have it. The problem is we live about 4 hours apart. Is there anyone who could foot the shipping bill.... or anyone headed from west tn to the portland area that could deliver it.... ( sorry my question mark key is stuck) lol

Thanks,Chip

Well, if he winds up with a stand I have one of the older model Summit "Seat of the Pants" harnesses that I will ship to you. The size is LG/XL. Just let me know if this will fit him.

smyrnagc / J.W. - He's 5'-8" and will probably go 155 & 160 lbs. He spends a lot of time in the gym so he's buffed out well enough that the footballs coaches (and girls) drool when he walks by. I don't know how the sizes of the particular harnesses you have vary are they adjustable?

I am 5' 10" and weigh 200lbs and it fits me fine. The straps are all adjustable and it should work plus gives him a little room for growing. PM me your mailing address and I will get it in the mail to you.

I will definitely get pictures. I'm at a loss for words...the only ones I can think seem so inadequate but I have no others, so from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.

PS...

I had to edit this. I was talking to my wife about what you guys are doing and she is thrilled for him and almost as excited as I am. For the last two years I have been the only positive male role model that he has had.

She has suggested that I ask all of you involved for picture as well. This young man needs to know that there are real men and women out there that give a rip, and that this is the kind of thing that real folks do. I would really like for him to be able to put a face with a name that way he associates this with folks other than just me. Again...Thank you.

Pastor I have received:

Deer stand
Quiver
Release
Journal
White tail bow hunting book
Hunters journal
Broad heads
Snake guards
Bibs overalls
Camo pants
Gloves
3 camo shirts
(Already had a sight and arrow rest to donate from when I upgraded my own bow)


I also will be receiving some arrows later this week. I could use some help with the bow string.

I don't want to ask for too much, but I do have other young men from broken homes that I am working with that I am setting a couple of used bows for. Seems I've got young men's archery ministry going without intending too.

i don't want to bleed the well dry but could use anything archery related anyone would still care to donate.

I have some broad heads and arrows I can send. I also have some older turkey calls I can send if that is an interest. I have some hats and maybe a jacket as well. Let us know if these are still needed.

Everything is pretty well taken care of at this point. I've got the bow put together. Need to swap out the rest for a whisker biscuit so I am doing some trading for one. I have the sight pretty well lined up and on target just need to get zeroed in. He called me yesterday and told me he's having withdrawals. I think we started something!
