Looks like Cade is a true lefty.... Nice shooting buddy!

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.... I enjoy seeing the kids shooting at a young age.... Curt you're getting him started right!

Curt,

Hunter, (who shoots left handed too), just saw the pics of Cade shooting left handed, he says, "Dad that's cool, do we have any other left handed bows we can send him?"

Pretty neat to hear from a 10 year old......

Doug, He might be a "true lefty"...He bats left handed...since the time he was old enough to swing things,he always did it lefty...but he eats and writes right handed.....

 In reality he's just like me now.....my dad made me left handed when I was young playing baseball.....but I eat and write right handed. But I've always shot lefty,never thought about the "dominant eye thing" till I started reading about and shooting a recurve...it was then I learned I was lucky,I was left eye dominant.....

 but he still throws righty.......

..didn't get a chance to mess with his bow today...but I told him I'd have it ready for him this coming weekend.....

 David, I can't wait to meet Hunter at Muzzy    :thumbsup:

Hi Curt

    I do everything left handed except play ball & golf then I'm a righty. Us leftys just seem to be wired a little differant. Then again a lot of it, is how and who taught us. If he has a BB gun and is shooting right handed, try and switch him over to LH. He will do much better there also if he becomes a shotgunner. Glad to see he is feeling better!

Curt, when I was young, about 10 years old I started shooting my Dad's right handed Bear recurve bow..... There were 4 of us kids and if you wanted to shoot you shot the only bow in the house.....right handed. I also learned how to play baseball right handed, we only had one mitt too!

I started hunting with a bow at 14, shooting right handed..... and I killed a bunch of stuff over the next 34 years that way.... even though I later learned that I was left eye dominant...I didn't want to change as it was working OK for me.  

I shot my bows right handed until 3 years ago, when I got tennis elbow so bad in my left elbow that I decided I had to switch to shooting left handed or give up shooting a bow.....

So at the age of 48 I switched to lefty..... I have two grown boys(19 & 24)and one is a true lefty.  When he was young I made it a point to make sure he had the equipment and the opportunity to do things left handed... So, I barrowed my sons left handed longbow and gave it a try....

I still can not believe how easy it was for me to switch and I am shooting better now than I ever could right handed.... Ohhhhhh, the shots I wish I could have back.... I only wish I had done it sooner, like at 15 years old.

It's critical that kids and every new archer get off to a great start with the right instruction and equipment.

I can see that Cade's going to do just fine.........

Curt,
Those are some great pics and good shooting. It's great to spend a day out with the kids, looks like you guy's had a great time. Joe and i went out on sat and had a ball our selves, kids will never forget the time we spend with them, the payback is tenfold.

but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

Doug, I think about "about the shots I wish I could have back",and I've always shot left handed!!
Cade's going to be way better off in the long run.

Curtis, Thanx bud....I hope so too!!
