Do you do it?
What do you do?
OFCOURSE!!! every year i take my cams off my bow and grease them make sure everythings still in working condition, and ofcourse regular string waxing and before i shoot my bow at a 3d shoot or go hunting i check my limbs for hairline cracks and do a complete equipment look over especially my arrows. You can never be to careful when it comes to anything that is potentially dangerous.

Bow Maintenance the first thing I asked is, do you do it? Reason I asked is so many don't and wait till the last moment and the results are not good. The next question is how often? Some think service a bow once a year is enough. Well if you are a heavy shooter you need to check the bow regularly. Many times I have checked the bow over and glad I did. Limb splinters is the number one thing I have found. The last question I asked is What do you do for maintenance? I think WildWilt15 answered it pretty well. The one thing that needs the most maintenance is the string set. Too many things can go wrong with it. A well maintained bow preforms well.
I wax my strings every once in awhile,wipe bow off if it gets rained on.....checks specs if shots are off,new string ans cable every so often.Bout it.
Whenever I adjust anything, I always measure out ATA and BH just to make sure everything is inline as well there.
