It's the grip for me, If you wax your string like you should wouldn't that keep the hand acid at bay?

I carry mine a lot of different ways, including by the string.  My bow doesn't weigh enough to put enough pressure on it to cause it to slip a cam, and I'm always wearing gloves when hunting so I'm not concerned about body acids/oils.  It's just a lot easier to hold than the grip on my bow.
That is about the way I do it also. I do mostly carry by the grip but but not always
