Default Bow maintenance ?

Its the end of our bow season and have to do some maintenance on bow. I have checked over everything, tightened screws and waxed string. I have read that some bows need to be oiled and some dont. I have a Diamond Outlaw and wanted to know if I need to lubricate my cams, wheels or bushings?
Thanks

Not sure about your particular model, but if it has bearings they are usually factory lubed and sealed so nothing to do there. If you plan to store the bow for any length of time it probably wouldn't hurt to spray some silicon spray into the axles to chase any residual water. Other than that there isn't much else to do. Bows don't require much maintenance.

Your bow is fairly new and for a general rule any bow less than five years old have sealed barrings so they never need lubrication
