Not really Gooseboy. It is just a little plinking bow. Most state laws require you to use a minimum of 40 lbs. to hunt with. Pratice on the targets and look for another youth bow if you can. I got my wife a Browning Micro Adreniline. Shoots pretty sweet.

Yea i know i was in like 3rd grade or maybe 4th and had some extra money so i just went out and bought the "Little Soiux." I only have on arrow for it right now anyway lol. I shot a 50lb at summer camp and it was pretty fun. Dunno what kind but it was a Browning.

Browning has some really nice youth/ladies bows. The Micro Midas series are pretty good bows. My wife shoots the Micro Adreniline. They aren't really that spendy either.

My 15# killed countless chipmunks, frogs, and snakes. That's about all you can do with it. Anything like rabbits or squirrels would need to be real close or you would have to use a pointed target arrow or broad head. A blunt won’t do sufficient damage for a clean kill on the larger small game at any real range.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!
