    Default Bow case for pack frame

    Since I am sitting here in Texas bored to death I am looking at gear improvements. I was thinking of sewing up a bow case with attachments (nylon straps, buckles) that I could attach to the outside of my pack to protect the bow, sites and string going up mountains. In the mean time I found this. Looks like the ideal solution. Made for packing in on a horse it seems easily modified.

    Take a look at the eberlestock packs with the butt bucket attachment. See if those would work better for you.

    Those look like day packs. Could not carry enough for a sheep hunt with them. My bow is usually strapped to the outside of my pack, on the back. But that leaves a lot of possibilities for damage.

    those things get heavy Dave! besides what good is a bow strapped to your pack anyways LOL!

    I heeded that warning years back when a COL E... made the comment about coming up on 2 big rams 20 or so yards out, longbow broke down in his pack. Hence the bows I carry in sheep country look like they've been through a cheese grator spit out and rehit with the ditch whitch for good measure. I made the mistake on a nice double broomer at no more than 15yards...bow in one hand, quiver, rain jacket, and tripod in the other, nothing I could do but watch. Tried slowly setting things down had an arrow on the string and wamo he knew the gigwas up and vamoosed! never again....ever! Though I do carry the longbow broke down the valley floors. It keeps me from making an honest mistake like trying to kill a bou 3 days hike in from the road with 2 major river crossings invovled haha! Lord knows its saved me a few times now.

    We need to talk about those goats when you get back up here!
