10 Commandments of Archery Safety Never dryfire your bow (shoot with out an arrow). This will result damage to your bow and/or possible injury. Never let anyone draw or shoot your bow if their draw length is longer than yours. Over drawing of the bow can cause cable damage. Never draw, aim or shoot your bow unless you are sure that the line of fire is clear. Never shoot an arrow if it is less that 5 grains per pound. Example 60# = 300 grains. Never expose your bow to extreme heat. Excessive heat, such as your on a hot day can lead to limb failure and premature wearing of the string. Always check your arrows upon removal from the target. If you detect broken nocks or defects, do not shoot them. Always carefully inspect your bow after each use. Be sure all screws are snug and accessories are tight. Inspect your strings and cables for wear damage. Always draw your bow while pointing at a target. A premature release of the arrow is dangerous. Always draw your bow with an arrow on the string while keeping pointed at a safe direction. Never draw your bow with a release if there is no arrow. Always back your limbs 5 turns before putting it in a bow press. Inexperienced use of a bow press can result in damage to your bow.
