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...
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.
