    Ask a archery question
    I'm thinking of getting back into bow hunting. I don't want to buy a new bow, since I already have one that will work just fine for me. The problem is it hasn't been shot in at least 15 years. Lol Does the string weaken over time, will it have to be replaced with a new string and what other things will need to been done?

    Thanks for your time

    Of course the string will have to be replaced, but the main problem may be the bow itself, where it was stored, what kind of wood it is made of and if that wood is too brittle and dried out to use safely. I would suggest, if you are really serious, buy a new bow and be on the safe side.
