Bounced the top limb of my bow off a rock Monday morning coming down. Spent all day getting it fixed and sighted back in, parked at the trail head and slept there last night, woke up at 6 and took a couple of practice shots and heard a loud crack, there's no cracks visible on the laminate but I'm afraid to draw it back. I don't have a week or two to wait for new limbs, what the hell should I do here.

Muleman, Ryan (I think that's his name) fixed it up for me yesterday, filed down and glued the existing crack. I'm waiting for them to open right now and I'm gonna give him a call.

Is the bow a Hoyt? If so they are in SLC and may be able to help you out.

Yeah I calked them first thing yesterday, they pointed me to Wilde arrow, she said they couldn't do repairs in house, was just told the same thing by a guy a few minutes ago.

Wonder if you could get limbs quicker if Wilde Arrow called into them explaining the situation.

What is your draw length and weight?

Shrek, you don't know the half of it dude, my Tenzing 5000 is giving me fits (zippers not closing, straps breaking), my boots blew out on the way down (see below), and now this shit. I'm flipping frustrated as hell.

Sorry buddy, I'm all out of ideas. Unless someone has a spare bow they will lend you or you burn some plastic on a new bow.

Wife shot down the new bow idea already, I'm just hoping these guys at Wilde Arrow can help me figure something out.

Yep.. It wont explode that way.

duct tape will also work but has shine.

this is what I would do if I did not have anyway to get limbs or a new bow.

shoot a few arrows and head out.

more than likely you will only shoot it 1 more time on the hunt

You should be able to have new limbs in a day? If it happened over the weekend a phone call on Monday would have them there today???

Jmez, I'm just going with what the pro shop said. I've offered to go pick them up from Hoyt but Hoyt says no deal.

Wow you are eating a serious crap sandwich! Try to keep it positive. FWIW - that model Lowa doesn't last worth a darn. I wore the soles off mine in 3 weeks of scouting...took them back to REI.
