Default New bow every year?

How many guys buy a new bow every year? What does your wife think about it? Do yo tell your wife a bow only has a life span of 365-days?
I buy a new bow about every six years.

I didn't know we were supposed to tell our wives! Never do that! I wish I only got one new bow every year. Last year I went through 4 or 5? I have kept one and replaced another with the same thing in target colors. Never tell the wife or let her see you having fun with the toys! She'll take them away!! LOL!!

Not every year, but only when I feel like it's time to move "up".

I haven't seen anything this year that makes me want a new bow. I guess my "old" 2003 bow will have to stay

I have had my bow for 5 years now. I am in the market for a new one. There have been great improvement over my bow in the last few years. So I feel inclined to get a new one.

My wif4e doesnt mind if I get new toys, as long as she gets one too. If momma aint happy, nobodies happy.

I shot my first bow, a pse for 11 seasons before I retired it. Just this spring I got the itch, Had to have a tiny little 30 ata bow. So I bought another pse and I'll probably shoot it for ever before I get a new one. If it isn't broken there's no need to fix it, unless I give in to temptation and pick up I primos stl for nest season. lol

I can understand how if a person had the loot to blow they could end up with 5-6 bows.
