Difficult to carry a crossbow in the buttbucket.
I primarily use this with my bow. I haven't had the opportunity to use it with a gun yet.
I feel the shape could have been better engineered to better suit both bows and guns.
With modern parrallel limb bows they don't really fit down inside they just kinda lay accross it. The top strap ends up carrying majority of the load.
Only one time have I used the butt bucket for my bow during this last season, and it definitely works as intended. Unfortunately I didn’t get a shot this year on a bull- so as I went ini kept my bow in hand or on my shoulders while hiking. My intent of use will be in packing out- securing bow to F1 frame using butt bucket. Next year. For now- its rifle season.
Excellent accessory to have for bow hunting in the mountains.
used this Buttbucket on the F1 mainframe to hold bow when biking into remote ground to hunt Roosevelt elk worked Great held bow secure
I don't use this as Ever lest ok intended. I mounted this on a molle panel that's strapped to the back of the front seat of my truck. It's a great way to carry my bow without messing with a case. I'll try it out on my X2 pack in few weeks and if I like carrying my bow that way I'll probably by another one.
As advertised, well built, excellent service.
I have the X2 pack, the bow bucket itself was easy to install on the webbing. The quick release strap was not clear on how to install and I was unable secure my bow properly while being able to quickly access it. If Elblestock could create how to videos for all compatible packs that would be much more helpful.
Everything it was supposed to be!
