Thanks Brian. I already purchased Beman ICS Hunter JR 26 inch length with 75 grain blunt tips before reading your advice. This is what the guy at the shop recommended and he did NOT cut the arrows down. It turns out my son will probably have a 20 inch draw. Would you recommend they be cut to 24" or do you think 26" will be okay? He will be shooting a Bear Apprentice 2. According to the manual, with a 20" draw, the bow will max out 45.5-49.5 lbs and with the limb bolts fully backed out 6 turns it should be about 26-30 lbs. I plan on starting him at the minimum draw weight until he is comfortable and then slowly move up from there. I guess we will hold off on wounding any rabbits until his draw weight increases a little! I will let him stick to his Savage .22 for killing rabbits for now. Also, I did see a the kids size TruFire realeses but havent decided which one to get yet. I should probably take him in and see which one fits best. Thanks again for the advice!
