Well fellas, I was finishing up a few weeks in my virtual hunting league here today and was shooting really well. Was on the last few rounds of the last week when all of a sudden my limb cracked. I drew back and heard a slight splitting noise. I knew right away that sound was not good. Looked at my top limb, good to go. Checked my bottom limb, not so good. The bottom limb cracked by the fork. Not here to complain, just here to relieve some stress and greave. Going to be taking my 2011 Silencer to the shop tomorrow and get this issue resolved quickly. Just bummed because I'm turkey hunting in the morning, but now I have to use the 12 gauge. I know threads like this are only useful with pictures, so here it is :)

May be a bummer but the one good thing is they will fix it and you don't have to pay for it yourself.

wow, that blows man. I'm sorry. Especially because I bet you were looking forward to sticking a bird instead of taking the easy route... j/k ;)

At least we all know Martin will take care of you! Good luck with the hunt btw...

Got the bow dropped off and shop tech said they would get the limbs ordered today. I'm not sure why the limb cracked. I've heard nothing but good things about the power tough limbs. Again, not mad at all. Just sucks because I was hoping to put a slick trick in a bird today and have to use the ole mossberg.
