What is the proper way to store/maintain a bow during/after the season? I have a Mathews Switchback. Besides keeping the strings waxed what else should I do?

Store it in a good case in a warm, dry place. Not a HOT place mind you.....Bad things happen. Don't put it up too far though, you still need to practice in the offseason, perhaps participate in some 3D shoots or a 5 spot league....

wax the string and and wipe it down once in a while

I recommend keeping oil away from a bow because if you get oil on a bow string especially around the servings it will cause the servings to seperate.

You seem to be very pumped up after the show! Haven't seen your name attached to so many post in a long time.

Aren't you supposed to be making strings? Back-back in your whole.
