Hanging a crossbow

Next question....I have hunted two small pieces of private land with some success the last few years. Due to the property being so small, I want to go back to some public land hunting. How do you/or do you hang your crossbow on public land? On private land, with permission, i've used hangers that go into the tree. That isn't legal on public land. Thoughts?

I have no intention of hanging my cross bow but it seems to me it shouldn't be hard so make a rig from a ratchet strap by placing a hook, with a curve bent in the same direction on both ends, probably made from flat under the strap. The top curve would go under the ratchet strap and hold it to the tree, if you can picture that and the bottom would hold the crossbow. The curve would face away from the tree. That would be perfectly legal on public land or private land.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

They make crossbow holders that you can install on your stand, they work well, and also serves as a rest to shoot from...

Mine lays nicely across the upper part of my Summit Viper climber. I don’t think I’d want to hang mine.....to much movement if deer are spotted close to the stand.

I use ladder stands most of the time some have shooting rails so I lay my crossbow across it. The ones without I lay across my lap

It holds all of your equipment? How long have you used one? It's what I'm looking for, and cheaper than the tree caddy someone else shared

Sorry, just saw your reply. I have used this for several years now. Bought it to remain legal on public land. Although he plastic hooks seem brittle, they are not and have held up very well.
