Im going on my first bow hunt friday. Ive filmed many working in outdoor television, but have only rifle hunted myself. Im looking to get a binocular harness that will keep them easily accessible on my chest and will be able to stretch when I glass, but will then keep them tight to my body in case I have to lean forward to shoot. Any recomendations?

Honestly I ordered the Allen strap form ebay for $10 with free shipping and it DOES NOT get in the way when shooting at normal angles such as from the ground. I do not take chances at the extreme angle with it. I mainly hunt in tents now because my 6 year old likes being there with me and I accommodate.

I use the same one. unless hunting from the treestand where I am more apt to encounter odd angles than when in a ground blind. In the tree I just use the range finder for my optic and drop it in a pocket when not in use. Or sometimes I grab a small set of 8X24 pocket binos that I have had for years, tree stand yardsges either works and with the range finder I get the range at teh same time using it as a monocular

I ran the S4Gear for a long time, but now I'm using Alaskan Guide Creations. Best harness I have ever had.

I had the original Bino Buddies. Lost those binos but they were the best. I have some I bought at Academy and they work fine just too thick behind the neck area.

Which ever one you use practice with it. I took mine to a shoot and wondered why my first end was so erratic. I took the binos off and groups tightened right up. I'm not sure why it caused my groups to open. I'll fool with it after the season is over.
