Here is you a question....

Where do you hang your bow while your in your tree stand? I'm right handed and I put a screw step in the tree right above my left shoulder to hang my bow on.

I put another screw step about seat high on my right side for my bag/backpack.

Are you using a clibing stand, because they make bow holders for just about every kind

When in my ladder stands, I use realtree E-Z hangers. They hold both my backpack (close to the tree), and my bow next to my left shoulder.

I also carry one in my pack to use when I climb.

I had one of those on an ol'man, and the first good wind that blew my bow was on the ground. needless to say it never got used again, I have an ez-hanger now. No problems.

when using my climber I have a bow holder that is not one of the forked ones but it actually holds it around the bottom cam.

When using a lockon I use a screw in bow holder.

I change how I use mine. Sometimes I hang it high above me and have cam right by left shoulder. Others it is on left with broadhead pointing out in front. For bow I use an ez-hanger and have a screw-in bow hanger that I put on right to hang my quiver on...upside down with another arrow loosened.

I usually keep it in my lap in a hang on stand , and use a trimmed of limb for a temporary hanger or a EZ hanger overhead on my left side .
I have a bow holder for my climber , and also keep it on my lap . During prime movement times , I like to have my hand on my bow and ready to shoot within seconds . I have been busted reaching for a bow on a hanger .

i use the pivoting arms that are almost 24 inches when extended and screw into the tree and this places the bow just to the left of my left arm in easy reach which allows me to hang the bow with a nocked arrow in the ready......all i have to do is reach out and pick it up and with one easy motion i have the bow at full draw in the span of about 7 seconds.....barring the deer looks up at an unpredictable moment!

I screwed to 3/8 bolts in the rail of my stand about 2 inches apart. I just put the bottom limb between the bolts and let the bow tilt forward. When I need it i can access it with minimal movement.

So do I.
I hold mine the entire time I am hunting.
I would not have killed the deer I did on Saturday,if I was not holding it.
It's worth the effort IMO.

I use a ez-hanger with three pivoting sections. When I am sitting in my Summit, the bow hangs straight out in-fromt of my left arm rest. I think it gets the bow about 3-ft from the tree. I used the two section one for a while, but this thing holds the bow just about where I would start drawing. I think it is perfect.

That's what I do also. Makes for less movement than reaching up for the bow.

I have bow hunted for 25 years and have always used the forked holder and have never dropped a bow or even come close.

I shoot right handed..put my bow on my right side whether on an EZ hanger, cut branch or screw in step. I reach over and grab it right by the grip and I'm good to go.
