There's more energy stored in that string at brace than what you are exerting on it by hanging it by the cam. Like others said though, don't want to scratch or mar anything so some type of coating or vinyl tubing over whatever you are hanging from would be a good idea.
rubber coated hook by the cam. I see lots of pro shops doing the same thing. I had this same feeling your having awhile back but then realized lots of other folks are hanging their bows from the cam. iam very gentle w/ my bow when i'm hanging it up tho. I have a hanger outside when i'm shooting of the deck and I almost always hang it by the limbs or through the hole in the riser.
All the guys at the range I went to had these huge phone tower things that kept their bow from falling over. I tried with mine but the 6 inch balancer wasn't enough. I settled with hanging mine by the coated hook. Felt weird since I was the only one doing that.
