Center Shots: How to Fix Your Bow the DIY Way

Center Shots: How to Fix Your Bow the DIY Way

Here at BOWHUNTING, we share your love for a smooth and functional bow. So when something goes wrong, would you rather pay someone else or fix it yourself?

There are many reasons you should learn to fix your own bow: it will save you time and money that may otherwise have gone to a pro shop; it allows you to stay afield longer during the season; it gives you the ability to tweak your bow for premium performance; and it's just plain fun.

BOWHUNTING field editor Bill Winke shows you efficient and inexpensive DIY solutions to fixing your bow in this month's segment of Center Shots.
