It almost sounded like dry leaves cracking when I shot. Did my limb just give up the ghost?

I dunno. Maybe you should let your brother in law test it?

Consider it shot and get a new bow

Lots of great memories I’m sure...

Not worth an injury.

Time for a extra Christmas present.

What grains per inch of arrow were you shooting out of the bow? How old is this bow? High Country is a manufacturer that touts a low "grains per inch of arrow" guarantee. Just wondering.....a High Country is one of the bows I shoot.

I would take the string off of it. I had a friend who hung one on the wall in the same condition. One night while watching tv it gave in. Sounded like a gun went off in the house.

What Aaron said. At least back the weight off. You don't want parts flying around.

I'd agree, back out the limb bolt a bunch, so the string is saggy. Then you can just hang it up. If you are handy, you could use the riser to make a fancy shelf or table/nightstand leg or something. Lots of fun memories!

Kinda lucky it didn't explode on the draw.

Had on old browning let go while shooting it, it wrapped around me, luckily just got a fat lip but it could have been ugly...that was back in early 80's. She's done for...

I have seen bows with worse de-laminations shoot for hundreds of shots, but I wouldn't risk it. I'd just get a new set of limbs for it, if they are still available.

After thinking about that bow - I had 2 limbs separate and they just made some nasty crunching noises when I pulled it back. Now when the riser broke that was when it wrapped around me! that was dangerous. I remember when I would draw it back around our camp my buddies would put their hands by their heads and scramble!
