    I saw it "over there", I have 1.4 million other things to worry about.


    I also file off all the numbers on my bows in my secret underground bunker!

    I really doubt getting a bow serial number indangers you to identity theft. But I do not know much about it.:noidea:

    Until someone reports "your" serial Number as being stolen, and you have to pay court costs.......

    Actually, I do agree with it. Though I think it unlikely that anyone could do much with it...the biggest risk I see is someone reporting it stolen when it hasn't been.

    To that end...I'm very cautious what I put on Internet forums...very rarely will I put pics of my kids...too risky!

    Ser# on a bow isnt a big deal.

    I believe that MOST manufacturers (not sure about all) but I know 100% for a fact that you DO NOT have to send in warranty cards in order for your warranty to be valid on at least most bows, this includes Mathews, Bowtech and Ross just to name a few.

    If you don't the manufacturer will use the serial number off the bow and the store that sold it as verification that you are the original owner and thus allow the warranty work.

    If you don't think it works try calling your bow manufacture, tell them you are the original owner and you had the warranty card but lost it, tell them the original store the bow was purchased from and that you don't do business there anymore... etc and they will send you to another store and the parts will be there waiting.

    Think of it this way....I have all my guns and bow Photoed and all the info written down in a safe place. If someone were to ever steal my stuff and it was found in a pawn shop or on someone, I can verify it is mine.

    Why couldn't someone take your pics and info off the net and try and claim them as their own. It could come down to "He Said, She Said" (though I highly doubt this would happen, some people will do ANYTHING)

    Bunny does this make sense to you??

    You have to remember where you ask.
    Now you are right. What can you do with a photo and SS numbers?
    We bunny show me a photo of your new bow and SS numbers. I can turn it in to my auto or home owners insurance as stolen. Get the money and Bunny's bow goes on a hot list. So I get money and if bunny gets checked out it comes back stolen.

    Or report it stolen, tell the cops someone told you this guy has it. More bunny trouble, Yes oddicer I just got it, took photos and did not have time to reg the SS numbers.
