Compound bows are used for archery target shooting, tournaments, home protection, and hunting. When you are walking to your next target, or out in the woods to find some game, even the lightest of compound bows will get heavy after a while of holding it. They make several types of bow slings that will take the load off of you, or making the carrying of the bow much easier.
Compound Bow Sling Types
•Wrap around your wrist •Over your shoulder
Wrap Around Your Wrist Bow Sling
The type that wrap around your wrist will re-distribute the weight of the bow to your whole hand and cause less strain and fatigue on your fingers. These are the quickest to get your bow into a shooting position type. Very easy to in stall, quick to grab and slip your hand in.
Over Your Shoulder Bow Sling
The over your shoulder bow sling is the most comfortable to me for longer hikes. It takes all of the weight off your hand or lower arm, and puts it all on your shoulder. They also cover and protect your bow string and bow accessories so they don’t get damaged on your hike. For me, this is my favorite type of sling.
