Default Bow Storage/Racks

How do you guys store your bows? When I owned 1, no problem. Kept it in the corner of the bedroom. Now, I've run out of corners, not to mention it's not the best or safest way to store one. It appears that many of you have Ivegotalottabowitis like I do. How do you store your bows? I'd LOVE to see some pics of the storage system that you use. Thanks.

I'll take a pic of my wall rack when I get home. All of my bows except 2 are residing there. My Samick Mizar Target bow stays in its case and my first trad bow, a Ben Pearson Mustang hangs above my fireplace.

well phooey, you can barely see but I have 3/4 inch dowel pegs (8 of them) that stick out about 6 inches from a 1x6. You can hand 2 on each peg

I have never liked hanging my bows horizontally. It seems like it could stress the lower limb or twist it. Here is my setup:

Default Re: Bow Storage/Racks

I have a six hook (rubberized) extendable metal bow rack mounted on my wall (extendable meaning you can connect more six hook sections to it if you have enough wall space). I store ready to shoot bows on the rack which includes compound finger bows and whatever bows I happen to be shooting at home at the time (depending on the season). My other bows are taken down and stored in Hoyt rollup bags on a metal rack along with arrow tubes and other misc. archery gear. Wood bows are on the top shelf in cloth sleeves. The metal bow rack is nice but I outgrew it pretty quickly with four in my family with bows. I have doubled up on a couple of the hooks.

Graysquirrel.....I'll give you $10.00 for that old beat up long bow against the wall if it is 40-45#, LOL!!!! (J/K)

Like your set up as it also makes it possible to hang the bows unstrung this way. Have been told (ILF) limbs fare badly from being strung all the time...
