Winterizing your bow

I shoot a Bear what it’s actually called I have no idea,  I got it as a Christmas gift from my dad roughly 6 years ago.  It’s been an amazing bow but it is getting old, what has kept it in such good condition is that I regularly wax the strings and be sure to keep it in its case when not in use.  

I have played around with multiple different triggers in the past but I always come back to the trigger release.  I feel as if I hit my anchor point and I don’t get a lot of movement with my wrist with this trigger.  With the thumb release my wrist will often pull or the tension in my hand increase and it changes how I am shooting.  

I like to keep all my ancillary archery stuff in the little compact box I have had this bad boy for 5 years and it is still going strong.  Another one of our favorite pass times is shooting our bows and making sure they stay dialed in.

For keeping your Bow strings ‘healthy’  in the Winter time it’s important to wax them and then if you keep your bow normally in your garage and have really cold winters, like we do here, then they are better brought inside and out of the extreme temperatures.

I know I have said it before but I’m going to say it again… I can not wait for this winter to be over.  This week Hazel and i are going to go for a hike and see if we can find some open waters that we can fly fish in!  I will keep you updated!

-Thanks for stopping by!
