Excellent Beginner Compound

There is a lot of plus factors for this bow at a price point 40! The bow is perfect for my 10 y.o. boy. It is his first forey into archery. He was sick Christmas night and the morning of 25th, but still found the energy to drag himself outside for a few quivers of arrows. And those times were mostly alone which is saying a lot as we were visiting cousins and the males cousins love to carouse with each other.
Pros:The draw strength is great, the grip is comfortable, and the sights adequate. It seems to be well made. I saw no sample defects. It has plenty of power out of the box. I do not know how to adjust the bow, so not sure if it is adjust high, low or in the middle. I was target shooting about 30 yds (down hill 2 yds). My nephews compound youth bow could barely get the arrow to the target 30 yrds out, so I "corrected" significantly when I switched from his bow to the Elkhorn and got my elevation considerably off. The arrow came to rest in some brush about 60 yds away! I did not think it would go that far.
Cons:True to form, the directions were dismal. I slogged my way thru the sight and quiver installations. I think I got her done correctly. The sights are adjustable up/down and R/L. In practice these are only adjustable R/L. The adjustment up/down is N/A due to the placement of the sight or the slot length. In short, the sight is good for ~20 feet or less at the bottom of the elevation adjustment. Anything farther and you have to make an estimated height adjustment; the sight will not adjust any lower. Finally, there is no rest or marking on the string for consistent knocking. I added paint to the string so he can get better groups.

I bought this bow at a store for the same price advertised on gundepot, It came with the pack as shown ,The bow is nice size, not to big or small, fairly durable, nice accessory starting kit. The bow itself is fairly accurate and even though the draw strength is a little weak it still has plenty of power for close-medium range hunting. It is accurate and strong at around 40yards, but much further and it looses strength and accuracy. Some quality arrows and heads make this a nice affordable back-up bow.
