That's a good question. I have shot mine here in 30 degree (F) weather with snow coming down, but I don't think it hurt my bow in any way.

Don't worry.

Cold won't hurt it in anyway.

If you can take it....so can the bow. I was hunting last night in -7 degrees and have been out WAY colder than that.

I don't think any manufacturers list in their warranty or manuals that you shouldn't shoot them in cold weather. Bows would be kind of useless if you could only use them in fair weather right?

I shot mine last year in -7 with a -20 wind chill I havnt had any problems. Just be careful that if it is really cold make sure you dont have anything metal on the string that is touching your face a full draw because it can and will freeze if its cold enough and you will bleed. The metal clamps that hold my kisser button on froze to my lip last year but I caught that before I shot.
