Anyone use a bike for hunting? Looking for a good way to carry a bow on a bike.
Do you have any pictures or details how you pack it? Also, if you do manage to kill an elk, how do you get it out of the woods on a bike?I elk hunt off my mountain bike quite a bit. Makes for pretty good access in non motorized areas with old logging/mining roads. I usually take my bow down and strap it to my pack. I have strapped it to my pack upside down with the quiver stuffed in a pocket on my pack fully strung. You have to be careful about overhead clearance with that method and most times is not practical. Make sure your limbs clear the tires also, could be ugly if it got caught up in there.
Used!Now this is a very interesting thread....I have a question on what Brand of Mountain bicycles you guys have found to be most suitable, well built, and what would the possible cost be ? I can see the possibilities. The trailers I looked at from the link posted above...very nice...but I imagine are pricey....didn't see the prices yet. Any and all comments on both the bicycles and trailers would be welcomed. Even though somewhat off topic...thanks in advance
