Quiver on or off?

Postby Goose » Sun Sep 21, 2008 5:54 am

Do you hunt with your quiver on or off. I am hunting for the first time with it on this year. I got a new bow and a nice quiver with it so noise is not much of an issue. Ive practiced all summer with it on and dont even notice it now. The doe I got Monday was the first deer with it on and I didnt even notice it. It is mounted high enough so the arrows dont stick out on either side of the limbs. The reason Im shooting with it on this year is because Ive seen so many second chance shots and with the quiver on your arrows are right there and you can keep watching the deer while your grabbing another arrow. Whats your take and opinion??????

For the past two seasons I had to leave mine on as it was a two piece quiver and didn't detatch . Using a different bow this season and will take the quiver off the bow and hang it .
Make the 1st shot count and you won't have to worry about a 2nd chance shot !

Fasteddie is right, making the first shot count is critical, however, I will have my quiver on just in case.  Don't really see a reason to take it off as it then creates one more point where something can go wrong.  Just my opinion, though.
 
Good shooting.

Glad to talk to all of you, but I'd rather be sitting in a tree stand on a cool morning trying not to move so that the bruiser buck directly below me doesn't figure out that I am watching him!

Always on for me. I practice with it on so i hunt with it on.

i agree with fasteddie as well, I never plan on taking a second shot with the bow but you never know and if the oppurtunity does present itself hopefully Ill be ready! Alot can happen from the time you draw back on a deer and pull the trigger.  If I miss and the deer doesnt spook to bad hopefully Ill be able to get another one off without making to much movement. Anybody ever get one on a second oppurtunity shot?

Yes, I have gotten more than one on second shot opportunities.  In all cases, however, it was a young deer.  I don't think the older ones give you many second shots, that's how they get to be older.
 
Good Shooting.

My first bow was a 50 yr. old recurve ...so I bought a hip quiver....never found a reason to change when I bought my compound...if I were to need a second shot ...it hangs right next to me in the tree and I loosen an arrow for a quick grab............

I also practice with my quiver on so I hunt with it on.
