VIDEO: Tune up your bow

August 09, 2013 at 10:18 AM

The State Journal-Register





The last minute will be here before you know it.

Archery season for white-tailed deer in Illinois opens Oct. 1, less than two months from now.

It’s time to get yourself and your equipment ready.

Darin Brauer of Two Bears Custom Archery, Ltd., 3121 E. Elm St., tells why hunters should get their bows tuned up before the season in a new video.

Here are a few highlights:

1. Change strings and cables every two to three years, or annually if you shoot year-round.

2. Allow for new strings to stretch. Have the bow retuned after 300-400 shots.

3. Changing strings and cables can reduce the chance of one breaking at full draw.

4. Getting the work done now allows enough time for a bowhunter to get in enough shots so the bow can be properly retuned by the beginning of the season.
