Default Bow Fell!!!!

Yesterday i was lowering my bow and the rope broke from 20ft up!!!!! My bow has never even been laid down hard.. It is prolly my faveriote thing to hunt with ever... To see it doing 360s end over end the half of the bow land on one side and half land on the other side of a log was sickening..

Ouch!....happened to me too once. I switched to a heavier braided pull rope and put a brass swivelsnap on the end. I got the line from home depot and dyed it brown...the rope is nice and soft, so it coils up in my waist pack very easily.

May I suggest using something more adequate than sewing thread for a rope next time!
