I received my second Stalker bow sling from Don East of EastOutfitter's of Cottage Grove, Oregon. This sling will be for my son's future Hunting bow. The slings are easy to use, Highly adjustable to fit most folks. You can shoot with the sling left on unlike the others slings...you have to remove the sling first before you can shoot. In a Spot and stalk situation....every second counts and removing a sling makes a lot of noise which will give up your position and spook the critters. You can shoulder the bow left or right or on the back. I like to have my bow at the ready on my left side with the bows handle near my bow hand. When the situation arises, All I have to do is flick the strap off my shoulder and give it another flick to the right to clear the cams and sight picture. Nock and arrow and I'm ready to fill a tag. I have shot with the strap on connected to the riser of the bow and I haven't had any noise issue's or marring of the bows paint. The sling is light and simple to use. I will be adding a video to this review in the next few days.

The two small pieces of the double sided velcro that came wrapped around the folded up sling is supplied for two purposes, the first is to keep the sling in a neat little bundle, and the second is to provide more protection for your bows finish, I wrap a piece around the riser where I'm going to connect the sling, it provides a layer of protection between the webbing and your finish. Nice review, thanks Simon. Can't wait to see your video. :)
