    Default options for legally carrying bow in the dark

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Maybe this has already been discussed but I am curious what options are out there for a bow case that you can conveniently conceal during legal light (while your hunting)? or let me rephrase, since the regs say enclosed on all 6 sides. What can you use to carry your bow in or out of the stand in the dark?

    Those spiffy backpacks probably come close to enclosing the bows on all 6 sides but I don't know they meet he legal test.

    This is rarely an issue for me on afternoon hunts unless I shoot something close to dark, which rarely happens because I am never comfy shooting in the last 15 mins of light with my compound. But sometimes I get treed by deer or bears.
    Things that fly turn me on

    I picked up a collapsible cross-bow soft case. It looks a bit weird but fits my bow and I can squash it into my backpack. You could also use a garbage bag.

    If you know someone that sews, get some light fabric, whatever colour you want, lay your bow on it and have it sewn into a large pouch, with a drawstring at one end. It will be perfectly legal and you can bunch it up and put it in a pocket.

    I picked up a thin nylon or polyester case from Saugeen Shafts many years ago.
    I can put it in my pocket when I'm hunting and it also had a loop at one end that i could tie off to when I needed to pull it up to my treestand.
    It's a large piece of fabric with a long zipper. I haven't seen any like it around lately but you could just pick up some fabric, a zipper and have one made.

    I did this for my compound. Even sewed in a zipper and about halfway through the season sewed on a strap. Best part is, it cost next to nothing in materials. Got everything from Fabricland for about $15.

    X2. Mrs.T did the same thing at Fabricland. She even found camo material. The beauty is I don't have to "take down" the bow to slide it inside the case.

    I go the fabric pouch/pillowcase route as well. I found heavy camo then treated it to repel water well. Best part is now I donít need to bring a pad or seat when I hunt because I can just fold up the bag and sit on it.
