    Default salt water and bows

    I just got back from Whittier. No luck. Is there anything I should be aware of with the salt water/air and my modern compound bow? We were in a canvas top boat with nearly constant rain for two days.

    Thanks

    You can wipe it down with a hand sanetizer rag. I did the same thing today. I got back last night from Whitter.

    Default Salt

    Wipe down any steel parts with a good rust preventitive and clean it completely. I am out there every year and it will sart to rust. Rem Oil works very well.

    I'm also new to bowhunting and I guess I never thought of my bow rusting. I'm glad I came across this post. Good info.

    Yes they do. Even in the rain they can rust. I always carry a rag with me to wipe my bow down when I'm done.
