Case for Older Bow

7 posts in this topic

I've got an older compound bow that I use for bowfishing. I'm having a problem finding a case that it will fit in because today's bows are tiny compared to this sucker. The bow is just shy of 49" long. I did find one case at Cabela's, but there is no way I am spending $180 on a case for this bow.

Does anyone know where I could find a case that this bow would fit in? My e-mail address is in my profile if you don't want to mention names on here.

does it have to be a hard side because they make softer bag styles. Just a thought because I have one for my older bow too.

No, a soft one will work, but I still can't find a long enough one.

I think I know the 49" case referred to. It is 49" outer length--you'd be lucky to get a 47.5" bow inside it.

Maybe a gunny sack or something homemade?

I don have just a cheap zip-up cover thing, but it doesn't offer any protection at all.

Maybe I'm SOL tongue.gif

I would make one out of wood. 1" X 4" or 6" and mortice in 1/8" plywood. Quick trip to the hardware store for some hinges and a handle and some stain and your set. $30 and you have a durable case.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
