I've placed my bow in the middle of my back before and crawled quite a distance. I've also laid it on my lap and crab crawled downhill. With a little practice it becomes pretty easy to balance on your back or lap. Also had a friend who would strap it to his chest, but that looked like trouble to me..lol As far as a pack to carry your bow, I bought the Eberlestock X2 with a butt bucket that is gonna work great for hiking. Not sure how it would work crawling:???? Gonna have to give that a try.
