    Hi all, newcomer here, but not to bowhunting. I've run the course. From flat bow to recurve to compound to crossbow. I am considering going back to the recurve and have a 50 year old Necedah with fine surface checkering on the limbs. I am wondering if this becomes a safety factor and should I just leave it hang on the wall. I have this safety question in to "Ask the Experts" but thought I would run it by you all as well.

    Bring it to a bowshop to get it inspectected before you shoot it, probably just hang it on the wall with good memories.

    I had an old bear bow with wood limbs that looked like it was in great shape, I had shot it a few times all seemed good, I gave it to a guy as a bow for his grandson, the limbs did not last long before they broke.
