    Have never use one but have an Elk hunt lined up for 2016 in Colorado, not much left to get but looking to buy a sling to carry Bow. We're riding up mountain in mornings on horses, hunting all day then back down to base camp. Thinking a Bow sling would be very helpful. For those that use them what's been a good reliable one ?

    I'd say it would be very helpful, there was one posted from the ATA that was a fast to get on and off which with a stalk in elk hunting might be a good idea. I think a backpack with a bow holder would do good to.

    Depends what you're looking for, it you want a sling that will protect your bow during travel there are many options, it you want one to aid while hunting this sling is pretty slick. I actually shoot better with this sling than without.

    When you're not hunting having it strapped to your pack imo is a better option than a sling.

    I used the Limbsaver Kodiak Lite this year and really liked it. On and off is really quick with a disconnect. It's nice too because the sling has some grip to it and it doesn't move around.

    I use the Primos sling. Love it. It is very comfortable, and does a great job, but is more of a protection sling. It is not designed for quick access.

    I would recommend the primos bow sling also, not the fastest on and off but fast enough for me.

    I use this one. I didn't want any with velcro in case something was close and I needed to take off. This works well. Quiet and easy to take on and off bow.

    I have used the promos and it worked fine I will use a bow bat in place of a pack when I am hauling in a stand and that also was a good setup

    Some nice slings posted already, all do the job(get one that covers the cams, might take a little longer time to remove but worth it) and I can't see why someone wouldn't use one - I cringe watching the TV hunters walking thru the bush holding their bows by the strings. I have a Primos and I'm thinking of buying a Kuiu for my back up bow - for $30 and less these are a great investment.

    Cabelas had this sling on discount for less than $10. Hard to go wrong even if you don't like it.
