Maybe I missed a step in my explanation..

1) Identify wood that is bowed out or in.

2) Make a diagonal cut from the top of the bow down.

3) Push the wood against the bow, reversing the bow. The kerf of the cut will allow at least a 1/16" of play. This straightens the wood out.

4) Secure the stud with a piece of strapping so it cannot bow back out again.

5) Enjoy hanging drywall.
