    Speaking of weather....what's considered bad weather for a bow, strings, arrows etc? Too cold, rain...
    Weather up here in Ontario has been really cold, too cold to even go out, but its starting to warm up a little, -8C today. Be nice to get out and shoot in the fresh air.

    Bad weather would be excessive heat. Cold isn't going bother a bow much nor is rain. All the parts are manmade and almost impervious to cold. Figure it this way. People hnt in the arctic with them at temps exceeding -20F. If it gets wet just dry it off with a towel. Keep yur strings waxed, but not too much.

    Really hot weather would be the only concern on the strings. Other then that Bfisher said it all.

    I've bow hunted and shot in -20F weather here in Wisconsin. When the temps are that cold, a silence extends that is somewhat erie. When I shot my bow the noise seemed amplified.
