5 Essentials Every Bowhunter Should Always Carry Afield

When Disaster Strikes, These Items Might Just Save Your Hunt

Dental Floss

Dental floss

In an emergency, dental floss can be used to fix your bowstring serving, make a temporary d-loop and even replace the cord on your drop-away rest. Waxed floss holds in place the best. When making a d-loop or drop-away cord, it’s best to twist 10 or so separate strands of floss together to make one extra-strong cord. By no means is floss suitable for a permanent fix, but it can at least get you through a couple of shots—and that could mean heading home with a filled tag.
