    Do I sell my backup bow to buy Jeep parts or is that just asking for something catastrophic to happen right before season? :confused:

    Thanks fellas for the nice feedback. Hoping to get a couple more down on camera this year. Benny, looks like you're captain. Lead us to the promise land! Planted a food plot today right before it rained. Glad the rain came down and hopefully the turnips and clover start coming up. Ill probably check the camera in about a month when I go put up the ground blind. Got another spot that borders a bean field. I'll go in and check it a few days before the season opens but I've learned the hard way not to over pressure good spots by checking your camera every week or two. I encourage you guys to hold off checking them as long as you can.

    I have never used Whitetail Institute seed before, but after this is 4 days after seeding some large plots of Tall Tine Tubers, Imperial Clover and Beets/Greens. I am thoroughly impressed with the germination so far. I know for a fact I excessively seeded most of the ground but hopefully it pans out.

    What is your primary bow and do you have a good bow shop nearby? If your primary is fairly new and you have a good shop you shouldn't be down to long if you have an issue. The main thing is $$$ because if you need to sell your backup for parts would you have enough to say buy a new $100 string or maybe new set of $150 limbs if needed?
    If you can swing that cost then I say go ahead and sell. I would also think about taking your primary rig into the shop to have them give it the once over to make sure you are in good shape.

    Bowtech Boss and I have a great shop nearby. You're right though, the money to fix it would be the issue. My backup backup is an old PSE Carrera.
