I recently posted an article about the High Point Archery Stabilizer Camera Mount and mentioned High Point Archery’s other products. Well here is another product of their’s that is both useful and simple.
We have all been there on a long backcountry hunt: you carry your bow and your grip starts to wear out. You swap your bow from between hands to give you grip a break. You stop to glass the countryside and have to put your bow down on the ground to free up both hands. Sure, you could mount your bow to your pack, but in the event that you need it in a hurry, you have to take your pack off, unclip your straps, etc. Also, pack mounting solutions can be pricey. Instead, a bow holster is the easiest and cheapest solution.
High Point Archery’s Bow Holster loops onto your belt and has a basic padded hook that holds your bow tight against your hip. I have used a few bow holsters and this one is definitely the best of the ones I have seen. There are standard and narrow sizes so that you can get the right fit for your bow. My Xpedition Xcentric 7 has a narrow grip, but it still fit the standard holster. I would say if you like to shoot with no grip, then the narrow holster will be good. Otherwise, the standard would fit all but the narrowest grips on the market. The holster holds your bow tight and there is no slop whatsoever so once your bow is hooked, it isn’t going to slide back and forth.
This holster is comfortable and is a quality product. For just over $10, it is a great accessory to have at your disposal. I used it during my recent elk hunt and it was very useful and there were quite a few times when I was glad it was on my belt. Check it out at hparchery.com.
