Good shoulder holster for SP101 snubby

Anyone here have any recommendations for a good shoulder holster to wear while bow hunting, or any hunting for that matter?

I carry in the hunting woods and not just my rifle or archery equipment.

I don't trust anyone, 2 or 4 legged kind, specially the 2 legged camp drunkerd's carrying around weapons in the remote woods.

I've used my bianchi Pro 100 IWB, but sitting in a tree stand, or on the ground it wasn't too comfortable, and i found that walking great distances and dragging whitetale, it would tend to slip on my hunting clothing.

Any suggestions? I'm willing to use a concealed carry shoulder rig it doesnt neccesarily have to be a "hunting" holster. Just need it to be secure.

Thanks

I cannot suggest from experience but from a shopping view:

I have been viewing the El Paso Saddlery "Hardin rig" and "Doc Holliday" rig. The Hardin rides on one shoulder with a strap around the back of the neck, down the opposite shoulder, to the belt. The Doc Holliday, lays up on the opposite shoulder with a waist belt. Each has only a hammer thong so security might be an issue.

El Paso also has a Tanker's rig which is more snug to the chest and does have a security strap.

I have personally been pondering which I will get ... I lean towards the Doc Holliday for comfort reasons mostly. But I must say, I am not a hunter so my needs are completely different from yours.

I am contemplating the same holster(s) myself. I need one for a 6" S&W K17 for hunting rabbits with my beagle, and one for my Ruger Vaquero (Montado) .
