I hold it most of the time but when I need relief I hang it on a hook on the tree.

I use a screw in holder i think made by "Gorilla" that i keep strapped to my climber on my way to my tree, when i'm up in my climber i anchor it in just above my right shoulder as i'm standing up slighty 90 degrees from my seat. Most of the time prior to daylight i have my bow "at the ready" till after daylight and usually hang the bow if i need to take a leak,stretch or munch a sandwich.

I keep my bow in the built-in bow holder on my Lone Wolf climber, it's real accessable with minimal movement to grab it.

In a loc on I hang it so I can stand and grab it in one motion, in my climber I have a holder on my seats rail.....same motion.

I'll hang my bow on a hook within half a arms reach so I don't make that much movement.
In the early morning hours I'll keep my bow in my hand ready for mr. Big Rackto come by.

I guess I would fall into the "other" vote. I do lay my bow on it's side but not in my lap.......it lays on my front rail of my Summit. I can stand up or sit down with no problems.......it gives me plenty of room to move and is right there if I get a chance to shoot.

Usually across my lap, but when I need a break I hang it on the hook/.

I hold it mostly in my hand and have the end in my pocket. One advantage the Oneida offers. The bottom limb sits in my lower leg pocket while sitting and in the top hip pocket while standing. Always in the ready.
