    Bow on an ATV?

    Here in Colorado we have to have our bows fully encased on an ATV (don't ask me why?). I had an older Polaris and the front rack had enough slots in it to strap my bow case on with ratchet straps. Pain in the rear, but it worked. I recently bought a new 2013 Polaris and the new racks (front) don't have any slots, so no where to strap it down. I'm wondering if anyone has found a good way to strap a bow case to these type of racks? I'm kinda surprised Polaris doesn't make a case that attaches to there new style racks. Or maybe they do and I just missed it? So what has worked for you? Thanks...

    Maybe you could get these to work with your current case.

    They might? I didn't realize they sold those separately. That's how you attach other accessories like my gun scabbard. I would have to get a second case and drill holes through it to make it work. Good idea though. Thanks!

    I knew I'd seen something else. Had to ask my buddy what he used. He uses this with a bow case.

    I just take a soft case, and bungy the bow case on the front. Keeps the bow nice and clean and easy access. Also on a Polaris quad.

    Not trying to high jack your thread but Colorado has more than one bizzaro hunting law.

    True story!

    I keep mine bungi corded down in a hard case with lots of form cushion. It's a habit from many years of having to float 4wheeler into some of the places I hunt.

    I agree it's a really stupid law, especially the part of it that states that a recurve bow or a longbow must be unstrung and cased when traveling on an ATV. Why unstrung? Why not just in a case?

    It's for the same reason a gun has to be unloaded. They don't want you hunting from a vehicle.

    Law seems fine to me.
