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 an unstrung one-piece traditional hunting recurve.

I use a pack similar to this one...
The pack is designed to carry your recurve bow (or other bow or rifle). From the item description:
Carries rifle, crossbow, compound bow, or recurve/longbow
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.
