Jok's Take On A Treble Bow Back Box...

Recommended Posts

Like them Moxy. Look well made and using a piano hinge is always good. Don't mind them latches either. However, looking at the others, it would appear that 'slung round the hips' is the way to go. I have never seen them before but have no problem making. I'm going for the one that socks has mainly because the others would take a bit more concealing. See what happens. Mate. I've just spotted the tilt front. Now that's an idea worth perusing. Looking at Naveks box, if you imagine cutting off the front corner roughly where the latch is and in line with the hinges we'd have the best of everything.

not as i know anything about them but that box of naveks looks ideal and moxys look class as well ,jok if you do what your suggesting and combine the 2 it would certainly look the dogs ,be good if others piped up about the sizes ,would they need to be much bigger for a hob? whats the reason for the slope ?

This started when W. Katchum (bless him) asked about a poachers box. Well WK you can see some great ideas so what do you want?. I love the idea of cutting off the front corner of a cube and having a Bowback. Size is immaterial. Mind you, we've till September to sort it Devon. Not sure about the slope. Think that would be a bit tricky. Does look smart though.

A version of a single I put together.

I put a slope on my boxes so your arm sits comfortably

Iv always thought the slope was for rain to run off, and stop lazy ferreting partners sitting on ye box all day lol

Yep collected the box today. Cracking bit of kit. Just what I hoped.

 

That middle pocket is really functional, pics below show it holding half a dozen nets, game carrier, mora knife, a couple of mk1 collars, a mk1 box and a pouch of spare batteries.

 

Not bad at all. Thanks again Jok...

I don't know if they find some small warrens a tight squeeze or not mate. They might do? No way of knowing really.

 

They bolt plenty of bunnys though.
