    Bow sling do you use one?

    Does anyone use a sling to carry their bow? What kind or brand do you recommend ? Looking for a sling so I can put my bow across my back as I ninja/army/ worm crawl into a stand and to do spot and stalk

    I am a bow-hiker more than a bow-hunter so yes, a sling is vital for the western terrain i hunt, hike, spot and stalk in.

    .

    I use one from Schafer Archery that I really use when I'm hunting so I can haver bow hanging in front of me while my hands are in my handwarmer pockets. Also works when I'm stalking.



    If not for that I'd get the Third Hand Archery one or the NAP Apache one.

    The schaffer looks convenient but I don't think it will work for me because I use an anti-torque rod and I think it will either hit my string, or my slide will hit it.

    Yeh...don't think I'd want to do much hiking with the Schaeffer or third hand! I've seen them used at shoots and at the range... they work great for that...but not hiking.

    The nice thing about the primos...it completely covers the cams...string/cables...drop away cord/limb driven cord. And for me the tilt tamer. Nothing left attached to the bow...completely removed and a few seconds. I wouldn't be without it on long and or nasty bush hikes! Light and easily pack away when not in use. I also use it at the long drawn out shoots.

    I strap my bow to my pack so no sling for me.

    I use the Bowbat XL and LOVE it...carries the bow and gets used as a pack.

    I use the primos as well, turkey season and while in the mountains, not much use for it for whitetail hunting.

    The primos works well. Also look at the Hunters specialties one. I like it a little more.

    Primos, and I laced a water tube clip into the shoulder strap of my pack to keep it on my shoulder with no hands if need to use binos, climb a steep hill, or fall down without losing it. (Hey, stuff happens!)

    I bought a primos but it was too cumbersome to use while spot and stalking for hogs. I now use a NAP Apache sling for hog hunts.
