    Carrying your Bow

    I'm curious to hear how people carry their bow [or gun] when packing in/out. Do you strap it to your pack? Or carry by hand? [Which would mean you must be as nervous about falling as I am and can't bare the thought of a fall jacking up your beloved weapon?]

    Bow- Eberlestock butt bucket or Primos Bow Sling. Starting to prefer the bow sling.
    Gun- Eberlestock scabbard

    Carrying your Bow

    I have a primos sling but I usually just carry it ready. Never know when you might just happen to stumble onto a good buck. Especially hiking to a spot that has some cover you go by and you have seen animals there.

    If I am packing in or out and the season is open either weapon is always in my hand. Current pack is the Eberlestock J107 Dragonfly so the bow gets lashed to the exterior with my cam high enough so if I happen to fall on my butt hopefully the bow is safe.

    I use a Badlands super day. I have an attachment that the but of my gun sits in and the it's strapped to the pack. Works great! If I'm going in for multipal days I strap it to me Alaska Outfitter pack.

    My bows carry great in the Kifaru Gunbearer under my right arm. I use hiking poles too. Much safer than across the back or on top of of a pack in my opinion. You will wear some finish off the bow where it rubs on your leg. Can get it into action in seconds as well.

    If I'm hiking in to my hunting area or on a long stalk I usually carry my bow on my pack which is a n Eberlestock G29 Tailhook. Also if I get into some hairy terrain the bow goes on the pack and allows the use of both hands. I do have a bow sling but don
    t use it much.

    Carrying your Bow

    Rifle in my Eberlestock J34 scabbard when hiking in, if there is a chance for anything it is definitely on hand and the scabbard has the tripod in it with the spotter still attached. For my bow I always keep in hand. I've strapped it up in the J34 but every time I walk through some thick stuff all I do is worry about the cam and strings. I really need to get a bow sling for packs in but never tried one.

    Look up the Balcom bow sling. I can't find any for sale online myself but I will continue to look. If you have a cable slide type bow you need to be sure that you have room to attach it on your cable guard when you're at full draw.
