Bowstring Armguard

Unread postby Lewis1303 » Tue Sep 29, 2020 11:24 pm


I’ve been doing this for quite a few years wrapping my string for raising up my bow to the stand around my arm to cinch up loose sleeves that my bowstring could hit. Works pretty good. Circulation doesn’t get cut off and I’m able to secure everything tight to my arm right up to my armpit. This helps especially as the weather gets colder and you start layering more clothes. Just curious if anyone else has done this or other simple ideas you might want to share.

Never thought of that as an option. I have always pulled bow up and sit on string. I drop hook on limb or something close where it is easy to find.
I live to release an arrow and watch woods grow into chaos and then grow quite as a mouse in just seconds.

That's a nifty idea!! So simple I can't believe more people don't do it. I may have to try that late season this year

a handful of rubber bands in your pocket/pouch/bag work nice too.
