Pennsylvania Game News - July 2017 - 58

If a crossbow string loses its
tackiness and feels smooth and
dry to touch, it needs waxed.
But wax only the string. Do not
wax any serving, like the one
shown here in black.

Crossbows need to be maintained to
remain in peak, safe-operating condition.
And while they don't require much
maintenance, the upkeep they require is
important.

SPLINTERED LIMBS
Because they're shorter, crossbow
limbs are under tremendous tension, even
when the string is resting.
When you take a shot, a lot of energy
is released as those limbs drive the bowstring and bolt down the rail.
With time, limbs might start to splinter.
Every time you shoot your crossbow,
you should visually inspect the limbs.
Run your fingers along all the edges to
feel for splinters. If you find one, take your
crossbow to a dealer before shooting it.
A splinter is an early warning sign of
potential limb failure.
If your bow has a foot stirrup that
was bolted into place when the bow was
assembled, check those bolts to ensure
they're tight.
It would be disastrous to start tugging
the crossbow string to draw it back and
58

have the stirrup separate from the bow
stock.
Make sure your cams align properly.
If something doesn't look normal,
or you can see the cams aren't rotating
evenly with each other, take the crossbow
to a pro shop.

STRING & RAIL
The crossbow string should be of particular concern to you.
On most crossbows, that string slides
across a rail as it pushes a bolt out of the
bow.
The sliding action generates a lot of
heat, which eventually can damage the
serving. So keep that rail lubricated.
Don't just spray it down with a household lubricant. Crossbow manufacturers
recommend special rail lubes for their
crossbows.
Use what's recommended; they're not
all the same.
When applying rail lube, spread it on
the rail using your fingers. Even reach
into the housing where your bolt's nock
sits at full draw.
