crossbow sling or backpack

Hey Guys,

what are you using to carry your crossbow in and out of the field. I'm using a Quake sling on my Parker.. the problem is. 1. it doesn't balance right on my back. 2. my right side cables are getting chaffed rubbing against my coat (slung of left shoulder) looking into a pack pack style sling or actual center carry back pack any suggestions? Pros? Cons? Thnx. NR

I will be using the Tenzing Choice Shooter pack this fall. I used in in spring turkey season and really like its features. It has a center channel for carrying a crossbow complete with a buttstock sling and center tie downs. Top quality and has a built in rain fly. Not inexpensive though.

I got tired of carrying my crossbow on my shoulder and having one of the limbs banging off of brush and the other on my back while walking in.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Could the Tenzing Choice Shooter pack connected to a climbing tree stand?

Are you really old enough to remember when there were huntable numbers of deer on public land?

You could probably use the shoulder straps to connect it to a stand for the walk in. It has a chest strap as well.

I use an adjustable sling does not rub or chaff the sting. Rides pretty good on my back. I use a fanny pack to carry what little stuff I carry in to my stands.

sling and one limb points forward. Don't need a 180 dollar pack to carry a xbow.

I have one of these.
Game Winner® Bow Pack with Quiver | Academy

Its pretty good for a cheaper pack and it works with my crossbow. I almost never use it when in the woods though. I prefer to carry my crossbow ready to shoot. At least if its not dark when I am going in. I have taken a buck and a doe going into my stand. If I had the crossbow in my pack those would have never happened. Also its would be hard to carry a climber and the pack with the crossbow. I do carry a climber and my pack but the pack ends up getting carried over one shoulder.

I find it easier just to carry my crossbow...without the quiver attached...I mount the quiver on my sling pack...when I get to my stand I attach the quiver to the tree...I do carry a sling in my pack...just in case I have to drag a deer.

consider a backpack-type sling from Slogan Outdoors or the Timber Butte Outdoors or some such.
