One other aspect when hunting in a tree stand is being surprised by game, then frantically reaching for your bow from an overhanging limb or screw-in tree anchor. A jerry-rigged bow fastening device is now a thing of the past as the Bohning® BowHitch is within reach, minimizing your hand movement as game approaches.
The BowHitch comes with a slotted fastener which affixes to the frame of your tree stand, whether you are right handed or a lefty, and the slotted component for your tree stand and the tang blade for your bow riser are universal. Once installed, your bow is now within inches of your grasp as you wait for dinner to come by.
The BowHitch is small and lightweight, has minimal components and can be assembled in a snap with just an Allen wrench. The best part is the tang blade and stabilizer adapter that mates behind your hunting stabilizer. The tang blade behind your stabilizer adapter slides freely into the slot component attached to your tree stand frame. The best part is the slot component can be placed anywhere along the tree stand’s tubular frame.
Bohning® understands a hunter’s needs, including the occasional last minute bow adjustment when in a tree stand. Before the BowHitch, sight adjustments, serving a peep, nock, rest etc. was done with your bow on your lap. Man, what a pain - what you wouldn’t give to have a bow holder to free up your hands instead of fumbling with adjustment tools while trying to keep your bow steady on your lap. Well, the Bohning® BowHitch is the cure.
The BowHitch fixes your bow in place, vertically aligned and within easy reach, so you can make those small adjustments. I recommend having a small bungee cord secured to your bow and tree stand in case you accidently pop the BowHitch out of its slot during your bow adjustments.
