I posted this same question(post on the TenPoint site, but wanted to get opinions from here as well.
Okay, so this season is my first with my Titan HLX and for that matter carrying a xbow into the woods. My question is about carrying methods.
What is the normal method for carrying your xbow into the woods? I have a sling on mine but have noticed that with the quiver attached I cannot carry the xbow with the limbs up, because the sling interferes with the arrows in the quiver. So I have to carry it with the limbs facing down. Without the quiver installed then its not a problem and I can carry it right side up.... but that sort of defeats the purpose of having the quiver mount now doesnt it?

Thanks
Alex

A couple photos showing where the rear stud is mounted for carrying the crossbow in bow down position. Makes carrying crossbows a breeze. Leave the front stud where it is.
I'm also posting a photo of an older Ten Point showing where I mount the quiver using the Kwikee Hi Riser bracket and 3 arrow quiver. Required drilling 2 small holes in the thick webbing of the riser. I'm also working on a bottom mount using the factory quiver mounting holes.

I've been ribbed by a certain gentleman ( I tend to use the term loosely :P )at Ten Point about drilling holes in crossbows. I can't help it. If Ten Point would put those holes in the right place, I could put my drill away. :D Only kidding. Great folks and great crossbows for sure.

Does'nt the string hit the riser bracket when you fire?

For some crossbows, a 3/16" thick aluminum spacer plate will be needed to raise the bracket out of the string's path. A hack saw, drill and file is all that is needed......other than the aluminum, which can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes.
