How Do I Measure The Linear Inches Of My Bow Case?
You’ve finally booked the hunting trip of a lifetime and it requires taking your bow on plane. Does your bow case meet the airline’s guidelines or will you have to pay an oversize baggage fee? Airlines use linear inches to determine if there will be extra charges. Most domestic airlines charge an oversize fee for any bag bigger than 62 linear inches. Use a tape measure to find the length of the bow case in inches. Measure the longest part of the case. Find the height of the case. The tallest area is the center of most bow carriers. Measure the width of the bow case. This will be the smallest measurement, and should be taken on the side with the hinges. Add the three measurements. This is the linear size of your bow case.
