Packing a bow question
« on: October 26, 2004, 12:23:53 AM »
I plan on taking my bow with me to upstate NY in November for big game season. It is a compound. What I need to know before I try it is, does the bow breakdown by loosening the poundage adjusting screws? I know it is not a good idea, but I want to fold it up to fit in my suitcase, it is mainly a practice bow anyway.

Smokey, I would take your bow to a good archery store and let them show you what to do.  :!:

On some bows, the limb bolts are long enough to allow for the bow to be completely relaxed, others aren't  :shock: .  As John said, take it to an archery shop and let them do it first.

If the bow is older and has teardrops where the string attaches, you can use those and a longer string to relax the bow.  Still, the best thing to do though is to have an archery shop look at it.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
