I shoot a Oneida Osprey for bowfishing and this is how the night played outI had a fish just sitting on the bottom. So I started to draw my bow back about half draw the bow all the sudden went tight like it didnt want to keep drawing back but by the time I realized it. I heard a pop and then the upper limb let go and broke my nock on the arrrow with out shooting it and still had the sting in my fingers.It looks like the upper limb I guess the out board yoke cable some how came out of the cam or something like that. You can see in the pics the yoke cable is different length/uneven. Nothing looks broke... Any Ideas of what could of happened?

This is after I got put pack together everything looks good and adjusted the timing everything seems fine and shot good.Also the yoke cable pocket in the cam looks good also.

In the picture it looks like the yoke cable on your oneida ospery is already turned to the left. Maybe the groove the cable runs in needs to be looked at. Look at the cable on the right where its right in place compared with the one on the left.

I see what your saying it has a slight wave looking deal with the cable/cam. Do you think problem with cam? Or would the outboard limb alignment cause it? the cam appears ok

The bow was brand new when I bought it. The bow hasn't been hit hard or anything I have taken care of the bow.
