    Default Bow Case for float trip

    Planning a float trip this fall with our bows.
    I like the protection a hard case can provide...but do they cause transportation problems? Should we use soft cases??
    Give me your thoughts.
    Thanks

    Before I became a resident I did a similar trip. I flew it up in a hard case but the case was left behind when we loaded the boat. As much as you think you'll use it, the case will just take up extra space while the bow is sitting on top of gear or in your hand.

    Would you still bring a soft case?

    I wouldn't bring a case at all into the field. In fact, my air taxi wouldn't even let me load it since space was at a premium. Bows are really tough and if you use common sense there is no more reason to have a case for them as to have a case for a rilfe.

    That's up to your discretion. I didn't but I buy my gear to be used, not to look pretty. Not saying you should abuse it, just that the water we were on allowed us to just sit our bows on float bags, extra clothing layers, etc. Rougher water may force some sort of tie down but again, a strap across the limbs and stashed smartly on/in the gear mass should suffice. But in the words of Johnathan Moxon in Varsity Blues, "I'm just one man."
