Binoc's and Bow

11 posts in this topic

What does everyone do with their binco's when bowhunting? I have always worried about having them around my neck and trying to shoot but today I bought a harness and want to try that. I like the idea of always having them within easy reach. Before, I would always put them in my fanny pack but that can get to be a problem when there are deer close.

the harness are the way to go. Keeps them tight to your chest and makes them more steady to use when you need them. Good choice!

Good choice on the harness. I used one for years and then purchased a compact sized pair of glasses that will fit in my pocket.

I also use the four strap shoulder harness which takes the pressure off your neck and keeps the binocs close to the body. No problem when bow hunting.

Hang it on a branch or screw right by my side. Easy to hang on and if I have deer that close I am not usually looking through the binos

I have a pair of compact binocs and I just put the strap around my neck and tuck them into the top of my camo shirt.

I have a large fanny-style pack that I keep my equipment in. I keep all of my "in the stand" stuff in the main top pocket, including binocs, grunt call, rattlin bag, etc. I hang the pack next to my stand on a hook or branch and keep the top pocket open. Personally I just don't like having all my equipment around my neck or in pockets. So I keep everything in a pack next to me. The way I look at it, if I need binocs to see a deer, then it isn't an issue reaching a foot or two to grab the binocs or a grunt call.

If I am using my larger binocs, the crooked horn harness is the ticket.

If I am using my smaller, 10 x 25, then I use a longer strap than usuall and put the strap over my head, on the left shoulder so the binocs are under my right armpit, out of the way yet easily reached. Hope this makes sence cause it is my favorite way to carry them.

Another vote for the harness. THey are very common now. I think mine is cabelas brand.

've been practicing shooting lately with my binos and my rangefinder around my neck. I have one bad eye so my depth perception is poor and I need a rangefinder. I have no problems shooting upright with the RF around my neck. If I had to lean over to make the shot I would probably have to put the RF inside my shirt or something. I haven't hit the glasses yet.

I have and love the harness. I have a set of Nikon Monarchs and the harness holds them tight to my chest when using my bow or my rifle. They are easily accessible and decrease the range of motion required to spot while walking or in the stand.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
