Draw weight?

Recommended Posts

hartner62

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.

Powerstroke

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.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
