    the j34 is hard to beat, i do alot of my packing in and moving around in the dark hours so the bow or rifle stays on the pack and the hand gun stays near my hand once light that bow stays stuck to my hand

    Paradox Gunhook for rifles. Bows I tend to carry in my hand, but I have strapped them to a pack before. I demand fast access if there is any chance I will run into game.

    I have a primos sling, but don't use it much. I switched to bowsling from nap you just unclip if you need to make a quick shot.

    I have had this talk with my bow now for many seasons. Its not new, it knows the drill, we aren't at Walmart and I don't hunt with a shopping cart....so why must I constantly have to carry it??!!!!!

    Simple truth is my bow is lazy and my arrows tend to follow its lead no matter what threats I send their way. So many times I have gotten tired, told both the bow and the arrows I needed to rest and they were responsible to shoot when we saw an animal. Soooo many times sure enough....around a bend and bammmm right into an animal and the bow and arrows are goofin off on my pack,not paying attention, and when I finally get their attention, I have also unfortunately gotten the attention of the animal and it just leaves. Takes its ball and goes HOME!!!

    One animal even had the nerve to show up at the party one day with a gaggle of girls in tow, took one look around and split, and took the girls with him, and I KNOW the BOW WAS THE REASON!!!

    So now, regardless of their promises to behave, despite their desires to "ride in the cart" while dad shops the isles.... I carry them, keep them where my fingers can control them at a moments notice.

    Since that consideration was made, I have twice now bumped into animals, managed to nock, draw and harvest because I kept the bow in hand.


    I mean if your gonna baby your bow, then baby it!!!! Otherwise your just out walkin a dog on a leash!

    I have a horn hunter mainbeam pack that I strap the bow to. Where I hunt, the terrain is very open, so stumbling on an animal doesn't happen very often, but when it does it would be tough to even get a shot with a rifle. As soon as I see an animal worth pursing, I take it off, but that's it. The difference is that we are covering roughly 10-12 miles a day since everything is on foot and no camping is allowed. If I was going half that distance I'd have it in hand the whole time or if the country was a little more dense. I carry my rifle on a sling most of the time even with a pack.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    I usually am going in and back out in the dark so my bow is strapped to my pack, but during hunting time I am always carrying it.

    I have a bow bucket I had made for my J34 and it works great for heading in to set up camp. Once I start climbing and hunting the bow gets caught on limbs if it is in the bucket. I tried the Primos sling and it is nice but aggravating trying to keep it on the shoulder. So I realy prefer to carry it in my hand while hunting.
