    Does anyone have any stats on bow speed in cold hunting conditions? Just wondered if their was any noticeable drop in speed or trajectory that could effect shots

    I wouldn't have thought there would be much difference in the performance of the hardware. Especially at the distances we shoot when hunting. I think the biggest difference would be in the archer, The muscles are colder, the joints are a bit slower because we can't warm up like the tournament archers do. The important thing to do is keep the shoulder cradle moving, even if it's just small movements and then make sure everything is in alignment when the shot is taken.
