Will leaving your bow in the garage, without a case due to lending my case to buddies to travel and hunt (not too smart on my part, believe me Im fully aware), affect the limbs on the bow and possibly cause them to shatter or anything whenever I shoot again ? Just unsure because of the constant temperature changes

Gann I would be more concerned about the bow string and cables. Bow cases not that expensive. Why don't you just bring it indoors....climate controlled.

Its inside now, but has been out in the garage for a few months, got busy doing stuff with work and being gone at college that forgot to take in before I left. Just didn't know if the bow might explode in my face or not whenever I go shoot it in the morning

I'd inspect it closely and just be a little extra cautious when drawing it the first time listening for any noise's out of the ordinary.

Will do. I just didn't know if y'all had heard anything about bows cracking and shattering after being left in a area where the temp changes so regularly, like a garage. I appreciate all the input so far

As long as it wasn't summertime and 100 degrees its probably fine.

If it is the last 2 to 3 or even 4 - 5 months should be ok, like said inspect the cables and string closely. Take it to a bow shop if concerned
