    Default Precautions for hunting in the rain

    Is there anything I should do to prep my bow to hunt in the rain? I generally don't like hunting in the rain, but there are good chances for storms this weekend. Thanks for any ideas!

    keep your string waxed real good. moisture will cause it to stretch. other than that,just make sure you dry it off when your done. otherwise you'll be back asking how to get rusted fasteners loose. good luck. be sure of your footing on wet treestands and sticks. rainy days are great for putting the stalk on some deer. it covers your noise alot. and dont forget pics of entry/exit wounds

    X2...I sometimes use my small air compressor to blow dry all hardware, clips, screws, rests, cam assembly and release etc. Blows out trapped water that the towel misses or can't get to.

    Wax. Dry it off well. use an air compressor for hard to reach places. Wet strings may loose me some speed. Thanks to everyone.
