The Double Bar UTV
Bracket is the original bracket developed by Alaris Concepts for the
side by side market. It is a 25.5" long, heavy-gauge steel
plate with a rugged powder coat finish. There are several
pre-drilled holes for placement of the U-bolts and Bowkaddy base(s).
As the name suggests, it requires two adjacent bars/members for
standard mounting. The bars can be parallel, vertical,
horizontal or diagonal.
The Double Bar UTV Bracket can accommodate one Bowkaddy (and bow) in
either orientation (horizontal or vertical)
or two Bowkaddies (and bows) situated perpendicular to the bracket.
will vary from machine to machine, but is pretty straight forward.
Pick a mounting location where the bracket will span the gap between
two bars. U-bolt the bracket to the bars. Fasten
Bowkaddy to the bracket. Insert bow. Done! Note
that it may be
necessary to drill additional holes in the bracket to accommodate
the particular geometry of the bars. This is easy to do with a
drill and does not affect the warranty of the product. Once
installed, you'll find the bracket extremely rigid and
perfectly capable of handling the rigors of the trail.
How about a bow rack for your
Double Bar UTV Bracket can also be mounted onto
the rear forks of most mountain bikes. No longer do you need to
hold your bow while trying to ride. No more slinging your
bow over your shoulder. Using your bow as a brush guard on your
front handlebars? Not anymore. With some slight
modifications to the bracket, you can create your own custom-fit,
mountain bike bow
rack and cruise down the narrowest of trails with complete confidence
and serious stealth.
Some hunters prefer to trek the trails
on two wheels instead of four, and for obvious reasons. Besides
being quieter, it's also much easier to navigate down narrow game
trails with less concern for scent control. As well, bikes are
sometimes allowed in areas where off-highway vehicles are not.
Stack the odds of bagging that buck in your favour by getting to your
stand...farther, faster and quieter. If
you're a bowhunter AND a biker, check out these additional resources

mountain bike bow rack:
