Default Bow holder for tri-pod

Several years ago I bought 2 Iron Talons to use on tri-pods/ladder stands. They worked perfectly. I put out a new tri-pod this past weekend and need a new bow holder. Cant find the Iron Talons any more, so what are yall using now to hold your bows? This particular set doesnt have any tree limbs within arms reach to screw a hook into. Give me some recommendations on a device yall have used that you know works well. Thanks.

Academy carries these too. These work excellent on tripods and tree stands.

That's the one I have. I couldn't remember where I got it. Works great and going on season 4 with zero issues.

I just lay my bow in my lap when I'm in a tripod. Seems to be less movement to get my bow ready to shot that way.

Have done the same, but there is no need when you can put it in a holder. Being hands free to use bino's, grunt call, rattling horns, play games on cell phone, take pics with cell phone etc. and not worry about bow falling out of your lap and crashing to the ground is much better. When it is go time and you need to raise your bow up there is probably less movement when taking it out of the holder than having it laying in your lap.

This is what Brett and I use to keep our bows in ready position, and film the shot. Completely adjustable and clamps to almost anything. Sorry for the sideways pics.

Thanks for all the input, suggestions and ideas. Sure wish I could find an Iron Talon but I guess they don't make me anymore. The third hand looks pretty solid

Google HME bowholders, they have several different sizes and are very reasonably priced.
