    What do the team members do with their old bows when they get the newest ones when they come out. I think it would be cool to use a bow that put down a big buck on the show.

    I try to find a person who wants to get into bowhunting or archery or someone who deserves an upgrade but cant swing it due to family or other obligations and donate the setup to them. My only rule is that they can not sell it but should pass it on if they no longer need or want it. Pay it forward kinda thing.

    I usually pass mine down to friends or family members who need a new bow. Some people sell them to help pay for camera equipment and other stuff we need for the show. Most people don't realize we often spend more money on gear than we make from doing this, so a little extra cash here and there helps.

    It's nice to see the team donating bows. I'll be looking at buying a new one soon (I hope). Mine was stolen about a month ago while my house is getting rebuilt after hurricane Harvey. We've been living in a travel trailer during repairs and I'm pretty sure one of the contractor workers took it. I dont have any proof so I'm having to chalk it up to a loss. Just have to see after repairs are done on what I'll be able to afford. I started this post thinking maybe a team member would be willing to make a deal.

    thought this was going to be a suggestion post, like challenge Justin to use some super old bow to take a deer.
