    Nothing wrong with putting it in the bow case. It's less likely to be opened.
    The rifles will be verified at some point.
    You don't want SAPS in your underwear? :)

    It's a good idea to pack clothing in your bow case. My wife and I always put 1 set of our hunting clothes in the bow case and 1 or 2 in our main bag. Just in case they lose one or the other, you are not without some clothes to wear.
