    hanging bows in your house...

    Hey guys, have any good setups/ideas of what type and where I can get a good setup to hang my bow in the house? Looking for either some type of hook to put on the wall or even a stand to set my bow in while I'm home. I've had it layin on a few towels the past week to avoid hitting the accessories and what not on the ground...but its drivin me nuts I need something more permanent to get my bow up off the ground. Any ideas? thanks guys

    I don't use anything fancy down in my basement "mancave", so a plastic dipped bicycle hook that is screwed into a floor joist works great for me. I hang it from the upper limb just below the idler wheel and that seems to work just fine. I got mine on sale at Menards for about $1.50.

    I keep my bows in their cases when not being used. But, if I did hang them up, I would use coated hooks.

    Same thing here, just I have one that is not rounded, the bottom of the hook is flat. Probably does not matter just looks more comfortable for her : )

    Go to my profile...in one of my albums.....there is a picture of my bows on the wall.

    Basic shelving without the boards. Just put some adhesive felt on the shelving arms to protect the strings. Go with the long arms and hang multiple bows in one spot.

    thanks for all the suggestions guys! Unfortunately I live in a one bedroom apartment with 15 foot ceilings lol so its tough for me to find good setups due to the fact I really can't hang anything from the ceilings. Appreciate all the responses!

    I have made a couple just take a 1x6 board cut it to the length of your bow measure your riser where you want it to sit and cut to 1x2 pegs about 6inches long and screw them into the board works basically like a gun rack and you can make them look as nice as you want

    I hang mine on Garage Utilty Hooks from Lowes. $1.27 each. Coated. Hang my bows on the wall like the art they are.

    I have two ladder racks that are lined with a piece of foam (came with the foam), and I hung them far enough apart that I can lay them on the rack limbs down...like the holders at an indoor shoot. Don't have pics, but I can if u want.

    Seeing you live in an Apartment--------the very best place to keep you bow is in a good hardcase. I have a bunch of room to hang stuff in and around my house but the very best protection is a BOW CASE. I don't care what kind of hook device you use, crap happens, things get bumped and knocked off.
    That is unless you have the need to show it off--------but then your leaving it out exposed for prying hands to mess with it. Your choice but mine is cases-------that's what they are made for.
    Have a good day and a better hunt

    I bought some of the hooks for hunting that Wal-Mart sells...The rubber coated ones that you can screw in to a tree...and I screwed it into a stud in my house. Worked great!
