Trying to get rigged up for September. He is 12 and wants to start shooting. Now I need to get two bows. I think you guys have put me on track for myself, but what about him? What would be a bow that he could hunt with?

Depending on his size, and his ability to draw weight back.
If he needs to be around 30lb draw weight..

Parker has some youth bows, that he can grow into.... as he developes his skills and grows, Parker can change the limbs.

Browning has a couple really good bows... a Micro Midas, a Discovery, and an Adrenaline. I have had exeperiece with the Brownings, and they really are good bows to get started with.

Good luck, and glad to hear your boy has an interest in archery!

Take him to a good pro shop to get his exact draw length measured , then let him shoot several bows to find one that is right for him . There are allot of good youth bows out there . PSE , Browning , Parker , Bowtech .
The most important thing is getting him set up right by going to a pro shop . It might be a little more money up front , but it will pay off down the road .

Something to keep in mind is the ability for the bow to go up in weight and draw length at his young age. Also keep it realistic, a crossbow will get him a deer this season. And I'm not a fan of crossbows.

I would go with the Drenalin with 60# limbs. You can adjust them down to 50#,which he can draw,and increase poundage as he gets older and stronger.
As he grows all you do is buy a replacement cam.

This bow my be more expensive then others,but considering how long this bow will last him, it is not expensive in the long run.
This is a quality vibration free bow he will enjoy shooting.
About as good as it gets.
