I'm new to this,, just trying to figure out best way to store your bow and arrows when not in use. Right now it's under our bed. Are you storing them in bow cases? Does hanging them from limbs/rails damage them? As for arrows, lay flat, stand upright on tips? Any help would be appreciated. If you have pics of your storage setup that would be awesome. Thanks.

Arrows leave on quiver extra ones store in arrow case or box they came in. Keep wax on strings take out and shoot every now and again, wax strings often.

My recurves and the wife's horse bow goes on the wall rack and the arrows get stored in arrow cases.

The LX stays in the case with some bow string wax rubbed on the string. At some point I Need to install the bow hook in one of my safes so I can keep it in there. I do the same thing with my crossbow. Really happy that Plano came out with a compact crossbow case that fits the Misson crossbows because I had to use the Plano Manta case for awhile and that thing takes up way too much room. If you pick up a case and want to add some foam to it then go to Hobby Lobby and grab some of their memory foam blocks for cheap money. You can buy a foam cutter hot wire tool there or at Texas Art Supply for under $20 and line your case with it if you need more padding. I put some in my crossbow case and used carpet tape to hold it in place.

Some on hooks, some on L brackets.

I keep my Carbon Element in a soft case, on a shelf in my gun safe. I worry about it sitting in there, I don't shoot it much, I've asked several bow shops, they say it is ok. I want to take it to Cinnamon Creek, have a new string put on it and re=tune

Mine don't get "stored". They get shot and hunted with all year round. If my bow isn't in it's case it's hanging on the hook in the closet or the recurves on a rack.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

I shoot almost every day. Except when raining. Have a range in the back of the property.

I built an arrow rack and my bows (compound and traditional) hang from hooks. I transport them in cases but don't keep them there. I shoot year round so I like to have easy access to them.

Soft cases for compound and recurve, hard case for the X-bow. Arrows and bolts are all in Plano arrow cases with foam. Wax the strings regularly.


Are you going to pull those pistols, or whistle Dixie?

Very nice bow


With the multiplicity of the options for the best compound bows, many may end up deciding in haste. Nonetheless, at all times, you have to decide beyond price.
