Check bows, string, arrows, and equipment and accessaries for rust, dents, bends, broken or missing pieces, wear, cracks, fraying, and make sure the screws are not loose. Don't forget to check your releases, and be sure to wax your string! Rub a cotton ball over your limbs to check for cracks. PMCS is very important on bows, cars, trucks, 4wheelers, and hunting equipment. If you are not sure how to do it, go by the owners manual if your equipment comes with one.

Good post David. Anything worth owning is worth good maintenance.

Great reminder that sometimes gets over looked when in the hurry of things. Reminds me of one thing ----- I have to get the lawn mower out and give it a PM, spark plug, air filter and sharpen the blades before it gets pushed in to service for the next 8 months.

Great post, David. I always do a quick check of my bow and equipment before heading out and doing some shooting. I always inspect my arrows after each shot too.

I periodicly check all mine and Jason's gear. Out in the field is a bad place to discover a problem, particularly discovering it the hard way. Besides, checking gear and maintaining it gives me something to do when I'm bored. Posted Image
