5 Essentials Every Bowhunter Should Always Carry Afield


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.
