Do not take your bow to this location. I took my wife's bow there to be restrung. After a month, I went to pick it up. It was still missing the cable slide. No call. I just showed up to get it back. They had no clue that it was incomplete.

I won't ever step foot in there again so no worries.

They could have a better sale than Academy did and I would not go! That's saying a lot!

I’ve been once. Prices seem high just like when it was Gander Mountain. Curious to see if it performs any better than when it was GM

I live 10 miles south of Lake Palestine. I have taken mine to Outdoor Connection in Jacksonville a few times.

I've used both of these and have no complaints. Logan at Outdoor Connection, and Brian at On Target are very helpful and reasonable.

Honestly, I don't know why anyone would take their bows to Gander/Bass pro/Cabelas to have someone work on it, even if it is simple. I only let real bow shops touch my bow. I will buy plenty of things there, but when it comes to having some work done, no way.
