    Prior to this year I hunted with a quiver on my bow. However, I started tinkering this summer and found that my bow is not only quieter without a bunch of arrows wapping back and forth upon release, but I am able to aim a lot steadier now without the extra 2 lb. of a fully loaded Arrow Web on the side of my bow.

    So, quiver off to answer your question [=}=]

    Yep IMO it is just another noise issue…. Plus the Balance issue of a quiver makes me a poor shot.. [=}=]

    I like my bow set up as simple and monolithic as possible. Fixed arrow web,fixed broadheads, one pin fixed sight, & (dare I say it :shock: ) Biscuit rest ;) . Just draw,aim & pray [-o| .Buck Fever proof :thumbup

    Quiver off. With it on you have a disproportionate amount of weight on one side of the bow. This naturally causes torque. You either have to compensate for it, or you will be shooting with a canted bow.

    I learned a long time ago to leave the quiver on the bow because when you need another arrow most times you need it with out makeing alot of movement like reaching for the arrow or dropping the quiver. If I miss or need to take another shot it’s right there.

    When I get in the tree, I take off my quiver and run my safety strap through it so that it is strapped on to the side of the tree. I feel much more comfortable shooting my bow without the quiver. If it isn’t attached to the tree, I slide it into my backpack. Regardless, I like it much better without the quiver on my bow.

    ihave some old quivers that have the kinda “S” shaped rectangle atachment system i usualy take the bow part and use a small lag screw to the tree and attactch quiver wheni getup there

    this season the bow im using i seem to cant to one side and the light weight 3 arrowquiver seems to help me correct so i may keep it on as i seem to be havin form probs with my bad shoulder– but i shall endeavor to persevere must get a chance at dem deer witht them thangs on dere heads

    Depends on the situation. If I’m in my stand I take the quiver off when possible. If I’m “still hunting” on the ground the quiver obviously stays on.

    I haven’t used a bow mounted quiver in about 15 years. I use a leather Chuck Adams hip quiver. [=}=]

    i leave mine on, arrow always there should i need an extra one…
    my quiver stays on all year, and practice with it on and sometimes with arrows in it. don’t notice any noise issues with the arrow web…quikee quiver, another story. however, if it is a little bit noisier, the deer that i’ve eaten didn’t notice… [=}=]

    I dont hunt from a stand, only spot and stalk.

    Hip quivers dont work too well in thick scrub….

    My mathews 2 pce quiver never vibrates and the bow is just as quiet with it on as it is when its off
