    Bow hunter Question

    For those of you that Archery hunt I have a question. How or What device do you use to secure your bow to your TW200? Do you use the handlebar fork system? Or something else... I have the forks on my bicycle... but I would like to use my trusty TW200... Thanks for your advice...

    Do you have a Cyclerack yet? If not, get one. You can mount the traditional "fork type" ATV gun/bow mounts on the rack. Just need to be careful weaving in and out of trees. I also use a JetSled towed behind my TW to get deer/gear into and out of the woods. Hope this helps.

    I pack my bow on my hunting backpack. It secures quite easily and is fairly readily available if I need to get to it in short order. I was always worried about catching my bow on a tree limb if I added a bow mount to either my rack or my handlebars. Occasionally I will set the bow across the handlebars and it rides quite nicely with the bow string wrapping around each mirror and the bow resting on the instrument console and headlight fairing. I stabilize it with one finger from my left hand as I'm riding and this has worked quite well.

    Sorry I can’t help you with the bow but have you seen this?

    You should check out MontanaScabbards.com. This device can be used to carry either a bow or rifle. There is a video on our facebook page of a TW200 with a rifle mounted.20180831_173813.jpg

    Really cool product... How is it mounted to the TW200. The TW in the photo doesn't have a rear rack. Are the mounting instructions included?

    This was a little bit of a custom job. I used 1/8" steel strapping and mounted underneath the seat. I then put a 90 deg bend in it and attached to the Scabbard with a bolt and washer. The lower end of the Scabbard is resting on the rear peg and clamped to the peg frame.

    I also strap my bow to my pack. Even my cheap Alps packs have a bow carrier. 30 lbs strapped to your back makes for some much more difficult riding, especially with the ruts and clay around here. Twice now I ducked under a branch and my quiver caught, luckily no damage done. Off tomorrow to shoot an elk. Maybe a moose. Fingers crossed.
