its a great idea to help keep the kids into the sport. I wish I had someone to take out myself. I've tried with the neighbors kids, one is interested but parents are worried. The dad might go out with us the first few times until an understanding of what happens is achieved. I hunt turkey's with only the bow so its safer then with a gun.
