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.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
