The ButtBucket is a universal compound bow or rifle carrier, made to mount onto Eberlestock packs that don't already have a built-in bow carrier. It comes with self-mounting straps that allow you to attach it to a packs MOLLE/PALS-type webbing matrix, or to the lower compression strap on packs that have them, or to the frame of the F1 Mainframe pack. The ButtBucket kit includes a Ripcord Tether and an auxiliary lock strap.

Bucket worked well w my Eber BP. Dragonfly
Bought it years and years ago, served me well, great bow carrier attachment for my Mini-Me Pack, have had it off the pack for over a decade now and wouldn't you believe it, I can't remember how to mount it again.......
As per other comments - Really needs a video showing proper mounting to different packs (especially the Mini-Me)....
Just finished an elk hunt in Colorado with my Just One, ButtBucket, and Ripcord. The ButtBucket was great. It cradled my bow well and protected the cam and bottom limbs. However, the Ripcord was useless and came off at the truck before the walk in. As I was putting my pack on my bow slipped, came out of the ButtBucket and was dangling. Not fun when you are trying to load a weeks worth of supplies on your back. It may work and be a wonderful thing if you know how to use it. There are no directions on how to install it and I couldn’t find a video on YouTube on how to use it either. Very disappointed and will probably sell the whole pack system when I get home and go with a competitor’s pack for the next hunt. I had other issues with the pack that have led me in this direction.
Seems like a great item, but I agree with Lawrence - there are a bunch of straps and no clues as to how they work with the H1 pack I just bought?
The ripcord that I was shipped must have been an older model. It did not look like the one shown on line and there where no instructions. I am sure everyone at Eberlestock knows how it works, but the rest of us are not so fortunate.
