    Hello Everyone - I would appreciate everyone's thoughts and recommendations for what type of compound bow holder you use while you are in your tree stand. I'm looking for something that is strong and durable and allows me to access my bow with minimal movement - I appreciate everyone's input.

    Are you looking for something to attach to the tree? Or are you looking for something to attach to a tree stand/mobile set up ?

    Thanks for your question. I am thinking of something that attaches to my stand so the bow is closer and to keep my movements more limited.However, I'm sure everyone has their favorites so let me know what works best for you.

    if you are going to go with a tree mounted one(my personal preference) get the cranford EZY hanger the 2 or 3 arm model allows you to put the bow whereever you want it in relation to yourself, I like to keep mine directly infront of my left hand so it is easy to grab. The cranford is 10X better quality than the realtree ez hangers upload_2018-11-8_11-2-7.png

    I prefer a tree mount to hang my bow from. I had a friend awhile back use a mount on the side of his stand. He stood up and was reaching for his bow at the same time, hit the side and the bow fell out of the holder to the ground. I do not know the brand or how "cheap" it was. I'm sure there are some good ones out there that would not happen with, but I like mine hanging in front of me.

    I prefer a tree mount to hang my bow. The trouble I have is that on public land I cannot use those screw in kind. Causing damage to trees with screw-in style hunting equipment is illegal. I am actually working on making one for myself with paracord and a wall-mounted tool hook for garage organization. I will be testing it tomorrow afternoon when I hunt.

    I have used paracord and a metal hook from a bungie cord from the back of my truck before. Worked like a champ. I was in a pinch.

    HME bow holder. Screw in or strap on. Works great.

    I use the built-in bow holder that comes with the Lone Wolf platform. I had to use the Wolf Jaws accessory because mine is a split limb bow. I like having my bow right there in front of me, no reaching for it. Just personal preference.
