My wife says if you have 1 boy you have 1 brain, 2 boys 1/2 a brain, 3 or more no brains  :chuckle:
and it does ring true sometimes, i love when i come in the room or out the door to the outside and they all get quiet...

This.  I used to work with teenage boys.  They share a single brain regardless of their numbers.  Even the best of them eff up!  Put that bow on the dining table at dinner and just eat in silence.  I bet someone squeals  :chuckle:

Are the cams bent or just tilting? If they are tilting and not bent like you said then yes your cables do stretch over time and could need some twists or replaced especially if it was ever in a high temperature environment.

I will be muzzle loader hunting this year, thanks for the offer.  The cams and axles are bent, not leaning.  It looks like it has been dry fired.  The arrows I shoot are 420 grains so this shouldn't be a problem of shooting too light of an arrow either.

Itís a bowtech enough said. Their customer service sucks too.
Bowtech took good care of me when my limbs delaminated.

Finally got around to taking it in to Denton at Rock Creek Archery.  He tried to get Bowtech to work with him, but they said it looked like a partial dry fire. Denton was great and worked with me on the price.  The bow seems to be shooting good at this time.  Needless to say, I'm a little frustrated with Bowtech and how they handle customer service.  I would highly recommend Denton to anyone!

Bow techs customer service is crappy, I know from personal experience. Something you need to consider when buying a bow.

I have 2 boys, but neither of them are into archery.  They rifle hunt and are pretty trustworthy.  I don't think they would try to pull anything over like this, but I'm not stupid either.  Boys will be boys.  My bow rack isn't easy to get to either.
Even good boys are likely to have stupid friends over ...

:chuckle:

We all know. 

Hope you got your bow sorted.

The bow has been repaired, I don't have any pictures of the bent cams.
