I have an older bow but still have about $500 in bow cost and accessories. Have hunted with it for over 20 years and have continuously upgraded string, rest, silencers, etc. so I think I have gotten my moneys worth out of it. A buddy was recently telling me he has over $1,200 invested in his two year old Matthews. Just got me thinking it might be interesting to know how much everyone has tied up in their bows?
