Bow Hangers

Just curious, what are you guys/gals using to hang your bow on while perched above the ground in your treestands?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Bow Hangers

Realtree ez hang 2 section and 3 section. I like the 3 better because it's easier to move out of the way for shots. It keeps the bow right wear you need it with minimal movement to grab it.

I'm interested in the new "Hawk" bow hanger sems pretty well thought out too.

Re: Bow Hangers

I stand + hold my bow 90% of the time I'm on stand. Got a bow holster(?) that slides on my belt and has a pouch on the end of a strap that the bottom cam/pulley rests in. I do have the grommet bowholder on my LW, my old API I rest on the rail for the times I'm not holding it.

Re: Bow Hangers

I never hold my bow, and use screw in hooks to hang it on. I have been picked off a time or two, but grabbing my bow from a hook has never been one.

Re: Bow Hangers

I second the Realtree ez hangers. You can put your bow at an easy reach.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Bow Hangers

i use the realtree e-z hanger as well.....2 and 3 piece. i use one down lower for my pack and the 3 piece up high for my bow. i have even used them to hand branches on trees with little or no cover.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Re: Bow Hangers

I built one last year but think I am ordering a HME strap-on hanger. The arms on mine aren't quite long enough and it's a little bulky.

Here is the one I built with my old Assassin hanging from it:

Re: Bow Hangers

HME 2 section. I have not seen a 3 section in stores or I would probably buy that just so you can get it exactly where you want it.

Re: Bow Hangers

I just use bow holders that attach to my stand.That way my bow is always within inches from my hand and it takes minimal movement to grab it.I have one of those real tree hooks but they can cost you a lot of money if you get caught using one.It just isn't worth it to me.Besides,they can get in the ay if you have to shoot behind the tree.
