    Default How Many bows is to many? 38

    My wife thinks I own WAY to many Bows. Under our discussed rules i have to ask this question of 25 people and must sell off if the number is less then what i currently own. No I don't know what that number in the title is but please remember i have two bows on order(add 2 to the number in the title.

    P.S. Any one have a 32" carbon elite doinker for sale

    If you have 38, how many do you actually shoot? If you only shoot 3 or 4 of them on a regular basis, think of all the cool stuff you could buy if you sold the rest....

    I'm with J.C. I'd keep a couple of the best shooters, keep anything collectible from an investment standpoint, sell the rest and buy another toy. I don't like to see anytjing sit around and not get used, drives me nuts. I also have several other expensive hobbies so i try to continously "re-invest" my money in different toys so it don't all come out of pocket.

    for one person....I'd say if you have more than 6 its too many. Now if you are keeping an extra 5-6 more on top of your 6 for when your kids grow into them, thats fine too.

    I would say 5 is too many...2 hunting bows...2 target bows. You gotta have backups. Now if you also have stick bows in the mix, then the max number would go to 9.

    If you are a "collector", then there is no max...
