And the pool water is green and murky! :(

I had my wrist sling on and when I shot, it unhooked and fell directly in the pool. No bounce or anything. Wooden handle with laminated wooden limbs. Now I'm going to be thinking of this (the nasty pool water) every time I put my lips on the string at full draw :(

take your bow and dry it off and get a new string.

May I ask what you were doing shooting around your pool? Shooting frogs?

I already took it apart, dried it off and wiped it with some disinfectant. I wiped the string too but I think I'm going to strip the wax and reapply new wax... that should get it pretty germ free I would think.

I am still trying to figure out what you are doing with your lips on the string???? Is that a common anchor with a recurve?

Think about the shot and target. That should "solve" Your problem. I wouldn'tworry about it. Rinse it off and fire away. What were You shooting at?

Homemade foam and cardboard target sitting in front of a mattress that on the other side of the pool.
