Barber's embedded Photo

My girls shoot a lot at home and even go stumping with me. But last week I was on my way to the local 3D shoot after I got off work Saturday and my wife called. Wanted to know were I was, I said on the way to the shoot like I told you I was doing after work . She said the girls wanted to know if I would come get them they wanted to go. So of corse I said yes , get them ready and I'm on my way. This was there first competitive shoot. They shot in the. Cub class, 9 year old and under. My oldest is 8 and she won first place. My youngest is 5 and she won 3rd place. I was off my game that shoot , Traditional class of corse , I came in 4th. I was one proud Dad ! They said from now on they were going to all of them with me. My wife took pic, she did not shoot in this one but was there to help with girls. My wife and girls are shooting in the next one with me. Just wanted to show y'all. Sorry but they took there compounds with them. They do shoot recurves and longbows, but wanted the compound since they shoot them better.

Thanks for sharing. It doesnt matter what equipment the kids are using. The important thing is that they have fun at that age. Afterall, what good is teaching if you cant make it fun and the more fun they have the better chance they will stick with it. Good job.

Tradshot, being a dad is great ! When I found out both my kids were going to be girls I thought there goes having a hunting buddy. LOL. These 2 are on the farm every where I go ! Go hunting with me, ride 4 wheelers. If I'm working on a truck or hot rod they are under there with me. If boys are rougher than these two I could not have handled it ! LOL of corse I had nothing to do with them being that way. :)

That's awesome! You are very fortunate that your entire family has the same interest!

Love it! Being able to bring your children into your own passion and showing them what it means to you is one of the greatest feelings as a parent. I couldn't go to a shoot without at least one of them even if I wanted to. Congratulations, you now have 2 of the best shooting partners anyone could ever ask for! Just start warming up to the fact that they're gonna start out scoring you before you're prepared! Have fun, shoot straight girls!
