In the foot steps of my Father, I need to be able to teach my children how to use a Bow and Arrow, the proper safety and the proper use of the tool. This would certainly help.

My friend has been living in the suburbs for a while now. Now for whatever reason, he’s been hunting squirrels and making “squirrel fingers” out of them (yes, it’s exactly what you think it is). They’re using pellet guns now, but I think having a bow and arrow to hunt these critters with would be worthy of a meal fit for even the talented katniss everdeen no? On a more humane and less weird note, it may make it harder for him to hunt squirrels… just saying… stick to chicken.

Bushcraft and survival is awesome. I love teaching my boys about nature, etc. Guns (more ammo) get’s expensive, whereas you can reuse arrows and it’s a lot of fun.

To be honest, I’ve just never tried it!

I spent several years in the boy scouts and probably my favorite memory was obtaining the archery merit badge. I got to make my own arrows on a lathe and learned how to fletch them. Since I’ve left the scouts I have always thought that a bow would be my first choice for hunting or self defense in the eventuality of a zombie apocalypse. I would love to pick up a bow again!

I’m the coach for our schools Archery Team which teaches NASP and uses the Genesis bow. We have allot of needy kids on our team who could use their own bow . So I would donate it to one of the kids on the Team

We are starting a homeschool NASP archery team and do not qualify for the grants given to public schools. We would love to have one for our team!!!! Thank you.

I got my USA Archery Certification Level 2 this summer so I can teach the Boy Scouts and Girl Scout archery badges. But I found out in the process being a Disabled Veteran I can become not only a teacher, but a archer myself and work around my disability. I now have a local Elementary School of disadvantage and at risk students permission to start an after school archery program. I’m in the process of getting all of the certifications I need to start an after school NASP program. I purchased a Genesis Pro Bow out of my own pocket to start teaching, but a second bow would never to lay idle with the number of students and Scouts i have now learning archery. Veterans Disability Pay doesn’t go that far but I saw a greater need and positive outcome purchasing the Genesis Pro Bow to start teaching others.

We need this to perfect our hand eye coordination. It would be very fun to teach our daughter how to shoot a bow and arrow, just like brave!

Awesome bow

Good archery is about self control and discipline. I would like my son to have these characteristics instilled in him through an activity that I enjoy and learned quite a bit from.

I have some extra apples and I’d like to learn to shoot properly before I become the next William Tell.

This bow would came out really god for me, i would use it to hunt, to do some target shooting and finally in case of a survival situation

I made a bow out of PVC pipe and my kids don’t want to use it. I guess they don’t trust my craftsmanship.
