Any one use a bow hook ??
I've tried the sling and strapping it on my pack, but prefer to have it in hand.
Thanks for the input guys I am sticking with the sling. My new bow seems to fit better on my pack if I do need to strap it on in case I need to climb or something. One thing I do differently is my sling is attached to my pack with quick release buckles rather than having a strap cutting into my neck. I have done this with everything binos, grunt tube etc and I really like it. I carry it up as high as possible on my side and it seems to work well.
strapped to my Eberlestock on my way in and in my hand while hunting.
I tied in a Crooked Horn Bow hook into the left hip pad of my Eberlestock Blue Widow. I use this when I stop to glass or need hands free while standing. The bow hangs from the string. This little piece is priceless to me. My Matthews never gets strapped into the pack unless all tags are filled. I do love my Mathews two piece quiver in how the arrow holder rubber part really grips my hip and rides nicely if I'm holding the bow by the roller guard. I've gotten so comfortable with this that I can't part with the bow. It's a Legacy I purchased new the year it came out. I think it was 2002.
Another for the Primos sling. I have the original model which I like better than the newer bulkier one with all the unnecessary straps. It comes off in about a second when things are happening fast. The best part about using the sling is that you can glass easily without setting your bow down or holding it between your legs.
