Squeaky bow?

5 posts in this topic

I was recently practicing shooting the bow, when all of a sudden the bow has developed a squeak in the lower cam area? What do ya recommend that I try to make the squeak go away.

a quick fix ; you could give it a shot of WD-40. but i recomend that you take it to a shop and have them relax the bow and clean and relubricate the wheels.

i want to add. i used to recomend to my customers to bring thier bows in every summer to have them inspected;cleaned and relubed! you will get dust,dirt, and crud in there that can not only cause squeeks, but can wear things too.

I try to get my bow in every year to the shop for a check of everything and every other year a new string and cable.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
