Bow Browning

How to adjust a Bows Draw Length?

How would you adjust the draw length on a bow, (Browning Bridger II)? Im thinking about adding a release, and if I did, I'd have to shorten the draw length.

Also, how do you tell if you need to retune your bow? About how much would it be to have an outdoor store do it?
Thanks Gerald. There is a little give (about 1/2") on my cams whenever I draw back.

I have sold lots of Browning bows, and most of them had cams that accepted a module for changing the draw length. You are correct in assuming that the draw length would need shortening when switching from fingers to a release, although there are releases out there that can be adjusted to attain the same draw length when at your anchor point. You should check out the Winn Free Flight release, and some of the Tru-Ball releases for this. I prefer the Tru-Ball caliper without the ball that attaches to the string. They are very good due to the trigger pull remaining the same no matter what the poundage of the bow. Lots of releases the trigger pull goes up and requires more pull to fire the bow as the poundage goes up. Also if you switch to the loop on the string you must shorten the draw length about a 1/2". Having a bow of the proper draw length is THE most important part of being accurate with the bow. Tuning is also very important, check with www.easton.com for their tuning guide online. My old rule of thumb was if the bow at full draw, had a spongy feeling or had any cam rotation left by pulling harder, was out of tune. The bow at full draw should have a solid feel to it. Sting and buss cable lengths is critical as is cam rotation. Hope this helps. Good luck and good shooting.
Gir, it is out of tune then. Check your string and buss cable lengths if you have a bow press to remove them. That is the first thing to check now! And from experience with this for years, would pretty much guarantee that is the problem. Once you have correct string and cable lengths you can fine tune the cam rotation by twisting the buss cable up 5 to 10 twists at a time to get the solid wall. Start with 5 and you will see the difference right off. Also this will up the poundage a bit.
Good luck....
Edit: Gir if it is a twin cam bow be sure both buss cables are the same length first off. Twist up the longest one to match the other.
