    Default What holster do you use when bowhunting???

    I'm one of those wimps that likes to carry a handgun when bowhunting & I've never found the "perfect" holster.
    Right now the gun of choice is a Blackhawk with a 4.75" barrel. I want a holster that I can wear when wearing my day pack or freighter pack, & something that will not interfere with my bowstring or binos on a Crooked Horn harness.
    Ideas?
    By the way, I really consider this a bowhunting question, not a handgun question.

    I recently bought a Taurus Raging Bull and this is the holster that I got to go with it. I like the drop down feature as it is a much more comfortable carry and I'm used to carrying pistols that way. Give them a look. They do make a great product.

    I like Dave Johnston's holsters ... he's in Chugiak and really worth checking out. Nice thing about it is that if he doesn't have exactly what you are looking for hanging on the wall - he'll make yours custom.

    Default I have an Uncle Mike's...

    but if I had my druthers, I get another holster, as the UM really makes you know you wearing one right in the middle of your back, just below the neck...& I've had to personally modify it (sew it still) numerous times, just to keep it from slipping all the time...it sits where I want it, now, but still, I can feel I am wearing it...

    Thanks for all the help guys.
    Just before any of you posted I found one on sale on Simply Rugged Holster's site so I picked it up. Hope it works well.
    Backcountry, interestingly enough the outfit you mention seems to make one for everything BUT the Blackhawk! I have a tactical style for my 10mm & am not sure how I feel about it yet...
    Gogoalie, I have an UM shoulder holster that came with it, but it's uncomfortable with the pack.

    Got my Simply Rugged holster Tusday, & have to say I'm impressed. I wrote a short review in the handgun forum.
