My bow doesn't mind a bit of moisture... but I still carry a handgun for protection.
I guess that counts? I take the cleaning kit along and make sure to give it a once over at the end of the day if it got wet, dusty or dirty. Same went for my BAR .270 when I used to rifle hunt. Rain is inevitable here... but as long as you wipe it down at the end of the day, oil if necessary, etc. it doesn't hurt anything.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
