there is something about that isn't there, you have to flex it first?
Yes maybe I should have said so,,, If you leave a wood bow strung up over time it will relax in that position and loose power(pound of pull), so you un-string it. When you string it back up the wood has relaxed in the un-strung position so if you pull it all the way back like your going to shoot it it will crack. So it's best to pull it a few inches, and then a little more and ease off and let it get it's flex back for a while before drawing it back fully to shoot it. Hickory and other woods are more touchy about it but Osage wood is really dense,flexible wood but I still treat it the same.
