Gear Review: Bowmaster Bow Press

The basic device is a cable system which attaches to the limbs on your bow. As you turn the jack screw it shortens the cable and gently pulls the bow limbs inward releasing pressure as it goes. Once you have the bow relaxed, you can install a peep sight or change the strings.

Two other hunters had coues deer on the ground. Now it was Roy’s turn. 11 hours in a blind saw deer come in but none were what he wanted until a head, with a rack popped out from behind a tree. It is now ‘go time’.
