Default Is it OK to spray paint a compound?

I have an Elite compound that I occasionally shoot just for grins. It is snow camo, so basically itís white.



I got a hankering to go kill something with it, and that white just bugs me to no end.

Would it hurt anything to spray paint it with Krylon or something like that????

Maybe like a Camo Wrap or Gun Skins??? Might be better than paint?

I painted my first 2 bows with spray cans. The critters never knew the difference!

It’s going to kill resell but if that doesn’t matter then go for it!

I am considering that too. Itís like a 2011 model, so not sure really how much resale value it would have??? I wonder if camo tape would work?

I am not a compound guy. I have not shot one regularly in probably 25yrs or more. I shot it for about 45 minutes today and broke 2 nocks and ruined one shaft. Gonna have to aim at different dots!!!!

Longbows are way more sexy though!!!!!

It won't hurt one bit. The only draw back to using paint like Krylon is to make sure you do it a good bit in advance before you go hunt. It seems like it takes forever for the paint odor to wear off. I don't know if that would affect any critters though.

Not a vertical bow, but my Killer Instinct crossbow is all black. I wanted to spray paint a camo pattern on it and contacted the factory to see what paint they would recommend. I found out that any type of paint or tape nullifies the lifetime warranty. I loosely wrap pieces of camo burlap around the limbs of the bow and call it good.

Regards,

Dave

Bisch.... Bisch..... Bisch....I can't believe you are shooting something with wheels!

Sharpie Markers or Marks-a-Lot is pretty easy to color up the white without having a heavy coating of paint. Just a thought.

I’ve always been curious if a white camo pattern would be a bad idea around here. I could see it somewhat blending in if you are in a high light environment.

Take a look at the ASAT brand camo. Add some light tans and darker brown and black and your bow would look awesome!

I painted mine with the ultra flat spray paint and I think it was a big upgrade. No more shine. I taped off the cams but if you wanted to go all in you could take the string off and paint the cams too.
