Why You Need an SKB Bow Case This Hunting Season
OutdoorHub Reporters 08.14.18
The number one reason to own an SKB bow case is for transportation purposes. Hunters are constantly on the go, and we tend to be particularly hypercautious when it comes to our bows. A bow riding freely in the back of a moving vehicle, for instance, has plenty of opportunities for being damaged.
But even if you’re not going to be transporting your bow around a lot, having a bow case just for storage purposes would be wise as well. Leaving a bow exposed out in the open, even if it’s indoors or in a garage, means that it is also exposed to dents, scratches, falling, or anything else. This is true for both compound and recurve bows. While you can use a bow stand for indoor storage if you want to, a bow case still offers much superior protection.
Another reason to use a bow case is for the safety of other people around you. You should treat storing a bow the same way as you would storing a gun, in that you will want to take the necessary action to prevent or at least inhibit unauthorized access to your bow, such as from children or burglars.
A hard SKB bow case with a lock would be an example of something you can do to prevent immediate access to the bow inside. It’s for this reason that hard bow cases are a better choice over soft bow cases for superior protection and to also be a better deterrent against unauthorized access.
In short, a hard case will simply be a better investment.
