Default Ever drop your bow from the stand?

The end of the pullup rope broke loose from my carabiner just as I was letting my bow down this morning. Down my bow went about 20-22 feet[:@]. It landed flat on the right side, right on the quiver. Got home and checked it all over, everything is tight and looks ok. So I shot it with both pins and broadheads and my 20 yd. pin is now my 30 yd. pin. Sight is tight and only thing I can think of is my Muzzy rest took a bit of a hit. So back to retuning.

I had one slip off 10 years ago..........from 20ft up no joke, it fell about 10ft into the top of a sapling and went partway down the top, the momentum of the bow pulled the sapling down to the side and the bow slid off neat as could be about a foot from the ground.[:-]
Almost as gently as I would have lowered it down with a hoist rope.

I actually dropped mine the day before I shot my buck this year. 15 ft up...if fell straight down and landed on the top wheel in the soft dirt. It was fine.
