Our Smokey River Takedown Youth Bow


Our Smokey River Takedown Youth Bow was designed to fill a need in our family. We noticed that when we were shooting our bows, the grandchildren just stood around and watched. When we went and collected our arrows at the target the grandchildren were always eager to chase down the arrows that went astray. My wife and I thought that it would be fun to include the older grandchildren (8, 9 and 12 year old) and make them a bow that fit them and they could call their own. With our ‘Youth Bow’ the older grandchildren could now shoot with the adults. Archery teaches patience, concentration, hand eye coordination and confidence.  My wife and co-founder, Vivian, wrote really good blog on the   “Excellent Fringe Benefits”of Archery for our youth.
We decided to make our ‘youth bows’ as Takedown bows. We thought that being a takedown bow the bow could be disassembled and put inside a small backpack. Kids will be kids when out in the wild they are climbing rocks, pretending pine-cones are hand grenades and “blowing” everything up and whatever else comes to their mind. We have found that having their bows in a backpack not only keeps the bows a lot safer but they can carry the backpack on their own. We thought that might just teach them about (a little bit about) responsibility when they have to keep track of their own bow.
We kept the bow simple. We at Smokey River Bows made Our Takedown Youth Bow for a smaller hand such as those 8 to 15 years old.  We made the riser from domestic hardwoods Oak and Walnut which are very durable and just seem to go together. The bow limbs are made from Hard Maple and Black Fiberglass. We also put a wood accent strip on the top of the limbs just for fun and looks.
At this time the Youth Takedown Bow is only available in one length 48”. The draw weighs are between 20 and 30 pounds at 18”. The bow is available in both a Right and Left hand models.
We make another more Customized Youth Takedown Bow which gives young archers a choice of woods for a different look to their bow.  We also make yet another Youth Bow called a Child’s First Bow or Youth  Entry Level Bow for ages 4 to 10.
The bow has a 30 day no hassle money back guarantee, if for some reason you don’t like the bow simply return the bow to us in good condition and we will refund your money.
The bow also has a Lifetime Guarantee to the original owner, we will either repair or replace the bow which ever we feel is appropriate free of charge. This does not include abuse or neglect inflicted by the owner.
