    So do you leave your bow in the car during summer? If you do? Do you believe that it warps your limbs? Do you leave your bow in a case etc etc etc?

    Heat is the most damaging you can do to your bow. If you need to leave it in the car, get the windows cracked, try to park in the shade, or at least get your bow on the floor and covered with something to keep it out of direct sun.

    If seeing is believing….

    I have saw  this happen three times I can think of. Yes, the heat and sun through the glass will make those nice lmbs wacko.
    Same thing can happen if you keep it stored in a shop. If it gets hot hot….not good friend.

    Never. The only time my bow is in the truck is when we’re on our way somewhere together. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    Never, if I am going to be out of the truck for more than just a few minutes.
