Default Best way to pack bows?

We are moving to Ohio. The good news is that the new landlord gave me the ok to hunt on his property. Deer pass right next to the house!

Bad news is I need to pack 2 recurves and one compound. I don't have cases for them and buying a comp. case isn't an option at the moment. What's the best way to pack them? Thinking of using some thick pvc for the 2 recurves. What about the compound?

Got a bow shop close? What about a box? That's how the mfg. ship em. May have to remove sights or stab etc.

Sell the compound and free up some cash to buy a case.

Bubble wrap and box should be fine

Sell them all and buy one good one when you get there. I would have to do that as I have 59 stickbows and six compounds.
