      I carry a duplicate of everything for my bow whenever on an a hunt that’ll remove me more than a quarter mile from the truck . All neatly stuffed into a homegrown leather possibles bag .

      Is this typical of some , most or all trad hunters ?

      I carry an extra string, although I’ve never needed it.

      Extra string and glove stay all season at the bottom of my pack.

      Ditto what Alex said. When I put a new string on a bow, the one I took off, if still functional, becomes the extra in my pack. Thus they get rotated out annually or so.

      I don’t carry an extra shooting glove.

      I can shoot at my quarry bare handed if need be in warmer weather. In colder weather, I keep a pair of the wool liner gloves you can buy at any Army/Navy Store. Been wearing those for years and love them. Work fine shooting a bow too!

      I carry my stringer and now I’ll be carrying a back up string because I just purchased my second string for my bow.

      Not much needed for emergency’s trad bow hunting. One of the many appealing qualities that are associated with traditional archery.:wink:

      I keep an extra shooting tab but that’s usually it.

      When we go to blackbeard island, I bring an extra string.

      Question for you guys:

      Do you carry a bow square too? How else would you know if you got your brace height and nocking point correct? I know most of my strings are twisted 20-50 times and if it gets off, itll go out of tune.

      I can simply eyeball mine and get it pretty much there Etter. Buy my bow is pretty forgiving.

      I’ve thought about carrying a bow square, but I’d bend that sucker to heck and back on a hunting trip..

      During the time I was shooting in string #1 I made #2 . After I was certain #1 was shot in and satisfied with performance I carefully removed it without losing any twist , and then tied the ends together .

      When I get the New warranty Super Kodiak , hopefully in a few short days , I’ll put one of these strings on it and see how she does .

      Uh ,,,I don’t own a bow square ,,,,,,,,,,,hope ya won’t hold it agin me .

      mark an arrow where it meets the riser then you will know if the brace height has changed…thats what I do and works well for me.
