Some times I hunch over and put my elbows on knees just to change positions, and then the bow goes on the built in holder on the platform because my hand is right there near it.
For my cheapie stands without any bowholder, I'm considering going to this for use on public land.

Don't you have to move a lot to turn around and get the bow. I just can't picture it if it's on the trunk behind you when you are sitting in a stand. Unless saddle hunting when you are facing the tree already.
