For compound bows for deer hunting, can the draw length be adjusted to be longer or will the bow need completely new strings?

It depends on the bow! Go to a bow shop and have the correct draw length is the most important thing archery!!!

There will most likely be a range that the draw length can be adjusted to. Take the bow into a shop and they'll be able to get it fit to you as best as they can.  For me personally I brought in a bow a buddy gave me and they could get it close but not perfect.  I'm 6'4" with a 31" draw and the best they could do on my bow is 30.5".  When I upgrade I'll get one that fits perfectly but for now I can shoot it just fine.

Sort of a dumb question but when the bow shop adjust the draw length on a bow, do they cut the string on the bow to shorten it?  I am wondering because if I needed to make the string longer, I may have to have them replace with a new string.  

 

Thanks.

my bows draw is changed in the cams not the string.  Don't think it even gets unstrung to adjust.

Same with my bow.  Changing the draw length took the shop about 5-10 minutes and kept the same string.

Mine adjust at the cams as well just put in bow press take a screw out and move a pin to the next hole on the cam.

I don't know how much you are adding to the draw length but I would stress make sure the arrows are the right length for shooting that draw length. If you change it much over what it is now likely you will have to get longer arrows bad things can happen when shooting arrows that are too short.

Some bows have cams that are draw length specific.  With these bows, you have to change the cams to change the draw length.  Some bows have cams that have draw length modules that can be purchased and changed.  Some bows have cams that have a rotating module that have a range of adjustability.  You may or may not need to have new strings depending on what bow you have.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
