Draw weight?

8 posts in this topic

How do you find out what the draw back weight is on a bow? Virgin bow hunter and I just want to make sure the 1980's bow is legal.

take it to a proshop, they will put it on a scale... takes only a second and they shouldnt charge you a penny.

Another thing I've done is used a fishing scale that has a high enough rating. The only problem is making sure you have a good attachment to your string. Always nock an arrow is doing it this way in case of misfire.

I would more likely suggest what Dietz said and take it in to be looked at. They can also tell you the mechanical condition of your older bow. I used a bow about 25-30 yrs old and I ended up cracking the limbs before hunting season. Have it looked at, better safe than sorry.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
