Wish I had my camera up and running... wife borrowed it and a half hour later I was cameraless.
[banghead]

Anyway... I made an adapter out of a T shaped flange I got at the hardware store. Covered it with leather and applied velcro to it. With a patch of velcro on the side of the bow I can put the tracker right next to my arrow and out of sight behind the bow.

Will try to figure out how to take some pics.

I have another way that people that don't use bow quivers should try. It is made with a 6" long piece of 2" wide elastic and a 12" long piece of 5/8" elastic and some Velcro. The pictures show it and how it fits on the bow.

I've used the spools like this for over twenty years now with no problems what so ever. All my hunting buddies use them as well. In stands where multiple shots are a possibility and you shoot something you can take the spool off, put it in a fork of a limb and add another spool and keep on hunting with out cutting the line. That way if they should run again, line will still play out.

Draco,

Do you have a pattern for that? That looks very simple and easy to operate -- always a plus in my book.

How does a stringtracker affect shooting thru shoot-thru netting, or can you?

I was the camera man on this hunt and had the chance to film Curt shooting turkeys and deer through the netting and could not see were it effected the flight at all.

I have watched those shots over and over also frame for frame in slow motion and the tracker worked great. He has sold me on them thats for sure. [Wink] That was fun buddy I can't wait to do it again.
