    I can understand the problem, although I have never camped and hunted. No reason to here. But giving it some thought, where would I hang my custom made re-curve while I was asleep in a hammock? Hmmmmmm. tough question. Think I would have to make a stand next to my hammock out of something available around the campsite. Theres no way I'd lay it on the ground.

    I have a crossbow, and want to try a traditional bow. Have always liked them. And, no need for hunting and hanging, as I hunt about 7 miles from home.......RR

    Some people laugh at me when they see me shoot because I shoot, three fingers under. Which means instead of placing the nock between my fingertips, the arrow is above my 3 fingers on the string. Some old timer taught me that years ago and it works great for me.
    Try it.
    Martin makes nice recurves and long bows. You can also make your own pretty easily. Just google it. or visit some of these.

    Well, I can go hunting, and then hang in the back yard after. But I don't think that's what the OP had in mind.

    I have seen both ways, and was leaning towards 3 under. Thanks for the links, checking them out, right after posting this. .......RR

    I hunt in AZ, NV, UT, FL, OR & TX...stopped hunting in my home of CA when the friggin' Fish & Game dept "partnered" with the Humane Society. That was enough for me. You cannot carry a sidearm in CA while bow hunting and the Marine who shot a mountain lion in self defense with his bow was aggressively prosecuted because lions are protected here. We have an estimated 20-30,000 lions in the state today. All of them have enjoyed complete protection from us bipeds so they do not fear us like they should. Now add in the cartel guys packing in dope, marijuana grows on public lands, meth labs, tweakers and crazies in the wilderness and you have a good argument for boycotting this state where common sense is uncommon.

    Looking to do a float trip in BC for moose and brown bear in the future. I shoot a Hoyt Carbon Element 65lb draw, Spot Hogg Hunter sight, QAD HDX drop-away rest, 8” Axion Gridlock 3D Hunter stabilizer, Archer Xtreme Carbon Vapor (camo dipped) quiver w/ Easton Axis 340 N-Fused arrows & Montec vented broadheads. Strictly a ground pounder, no treestands for me. I like getting close & personal. It is the "pursuit" of game I enjoy.

    Just finished refurbishing the .30-06 that I inherited from my dad, a pre-64 Winchester Model 70. I suffered traumatic injuries in a boating accident so resuming bow hunting will have to wait. I'll feel blessed to sit on a deer stand with the rifle this year.

    Yes, now that it's been mentioned, it makes sense to hang for a hunting trip. My first physical therapist in Maine told me that he set up overnight for a huge buck he had scouted. He was a Vietnam vet and was used to sleeping under a poncho all night in the jungle. Hanging could put one deep in the woods ahead of those stalking in from the roads.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)
