Got home last night and wanted to shoot a few times before this Saturday. BIL was there seeing the kids and walked out to watch. I went to retrieve my arrows and heard "THWACK, SMACK, BOOM".

Bill dry-fired my bow! String is toast. Cable is frayed. Top cam won't roll (warped/bearings screwed), and upper limb is cracked.

On a good note, I was so sick to my stomach that I didn't eat supper and went to bed at 9.

And I really liked that Switchback.

He chose a fine time to do that. Hate to hear that happened to your bow.

My neighbor went to draw my bow a few days ago, and I stopped him. He said, let me try and pull that back.

I know he thought I was being rude,but he had no idea not to dry fire it,or let go of the string halfway.

My wife is still upset I did that to him. She said I treated him like a child.

I have a lot of money in my bow,and worked on it for the past 2 months shooting and getting it ready to hunt.
People who do not understand bows,have no idea they can do this damage.
