I wanted a way to get my bow out of its case on onto the wall for all to see. So i did some research and I came up with this. Its made from rough sawn oak my father left. Its really simple and I am happy with it. My plan was to cross drill holes through the back 4 pieces so that i could slide arrows in there, however I didnt want to drive across the county to use my buddies drill press.

Nice display! I’ve been meaning to design something like this for my Hoyt for years. You’ve inspired me to finally start that project. Thanks for sharing.

Just put my bow away, season ended today. Now I will have some time in the shop and will probably build one of these for mine. The elk in your profile is a beauty.

That’s an Indiana whitetail! It was hit by a trucker some how he managed not to destroy any of the rack. The picture was sent to me a few hours later by my uncle who is a Game Warden here.

You don’t happen to have a plan or sketchup for this do you? I know my father in law would be interested in something like this and his birthday is coming up.
