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.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
