The lower limb on my Black Woff has started to creak on the draw. It’s my first ilf bow, is this normal or is there something I should be looking at? I like the bow but the creaking really screws with my consentration.

Limbs shouldn't creak. You need to look and see if something is binding/rubbing at the limb butt.

Sometimes a little wax in the pockets will get rid of that or a little mole skin

Did you wax your string recently? Make sure there's no wax in the string groove on that limb.

The creak is coming from the limb pocket area, but I can’t see that the wear or fitment is any different between upper and lower limb.

Maybe spray the area with silicone spray and then take limbs off and wipe off leaving a very thin coating.

Deer don't line creaking limbs

String wax rubbed onto the joining parts will quiet creaking limbs.

Yes the deer will go away.
