    Absolutely, it is a great way to customize your rig.

    Not me, throwing my bow at the Mtn. Lion breathing down my neck is my only option as you cannot carry a sidearm while bow hunting. Wrist sling might get in the way. 125lb cat caught in Lancaster Ca. a few days ago. Just never seen the need.

    I'm torn, th old girl doesnt have one but can only get up to 45 pounds, the firecat came with one and not sure wow I feel about it sometimes it's in the way but only when the limbs were turned down to 55 .. now that I'm up to 65 ish i like it(70 max out 2 turns).
    when the bow falls off after the shot I kinda like the assurance I won't drop it, LOl plus I need a new one and wanna give Hutch the business

    If a wrist sling is set right the one major thing it does is help you not to torque the bow.

    Oh ???
    maybe mine isn't set correctly ???
    MORE INPUT HUTCH !! NEED MORE INPUT !!!
    mine just kinda hangs around my wrist, doesn't really have any play in how i hold the bow let alone torque, so I'm pretty sure it isn't set correctly
    if you could post some pics of a properly set one I know I would appreciate it

    If you are looking for a legal back up to a bow hunting "oops I missed and made my target angry" side arm, might I recomend this. http://www.sogknives.com/outdoor/gear/spirit-knife.html
    It can be easily attached to a walking stick and voila, you own personal spear which IMO would give you beter odds than throwing your bow.

    Even a good knife would better at that point IMO.

    Default wrist sling or not?

    Here's one I have on order, but all black with the ivory skulls. Two other skulls are available, transparent white and chrome. I also have on order a black and flo green wrist sling and matching binoculars strap.

    Would this be saying I'm a head hunter?
