how do you store/display your crossbow.

Post by drkillemquick » Thu Nov 20, 2008 6:32 pm

Hey everybody, I am just getting ready to build myself a new display stand where I will store and display my crossbow. I was wondering if you could share pics or thoughts on how you store your crossbow. And if there are any tips on ways not to display it. Looking forward to pics and or any ideas! Thanks Donnie

During the season mine is in the closet assembled
During off season it's like this.

It doesn't take long to put it back together if I want to shoot.

Riley and I have ours hanging on hooks in the spare bedroom aka The Hunting Room. I really should make up something a little fancier. Someday maybe.

Mine hangs from a hook in the ceiling of my walk-in closet overtop my gun locker. I guess a display would look nice if I had the room and the same would go for my guns., but I would rather keep them all out of sight.

Loud and proud! Actually I hide mine till I need them. :wink:
This is my wall of death, every morning I spin a wheel to see which tool will accompany me for the day.
In this picture I see gifts from Boo, Dagriz, sumner, John.. Life is good, so are the people here.

I actually keep mine in an unheated building so I don't have to worry about temperature changes causing condensation (sweating) problems.
