We're planning a 4 day hike in a few months. I would like to take my bow with me to do a little roving.

How can I attach my bow to my backpack (back)?

We are talking about a unstrung one-piece traditional hunting recurve.

I use a pack similar to this one...

RedHead Primal Bow/Rifle Pack

  • Nice, thanks! Do you know if there are any without camo? – OddDeer Jan 14 '16 at 10:30

I would lash it to the side of the pack, vertically, with nylon straps that you can purchase at any outdoor sporting store. You may have a little bit of trouble walking beneath branches or fallen trees if it extends too high above you. You should also remember that a bow is considered hunting equipment and, depending on the state you are in, you can be in legal trouble if you do not have a hunting license or if you are not in season.

  • Thank you very much! I live in Germany and luckily a bow is considered as "sporting equipment" there by law :) (as long as you don't have broadheads attached!). Would you mind providing a picture of such nylon straps? – OddDeer Jan 14 '16 at 10:29

    You can purchase something like this and some buckles. This way you can customize your setup. I pack a takedown bow that I can assemble and disassemble easily. I keep it protected and dry inside my pack and it doesn't hang on branches. – Shek Jan 14 '16 at 15:52
