    Off, I don’t like the extra weight when I shoot [=}=]

    Wouldn’t even think of keeping it on. I don’t see any advantage if I needed a second shot I’d use a hip quiver if still hunting, or in my tree stand I keep my quiver nearby.

    I began shooting with the quiver on when I started shooting a Mathews and have not changed. I think the added weight of the two piece on the ends of the riser adds a little forgiveness. Noise has not been an issue. As far as accuracy I don’t notice any difference between a full quiver and an empty one inside 30 yard and at 40 it is negligible. Also, keeping it on means one less thing to get ready once I climb the tree. I have needed a quick reload for a second deer!

    I have always practiced with my quiver off the bow…why wouldn’t I hunt that way? I’m sure the added weight would make a difference, in addition to reduced sight lines.

    Due to the fact that I travel to the stand with the quiver attached and I may well see a deer on that trek , I choose to set up the bow for that possibility.
    Since the bow is set up that way I leave it on.

    I actually found out I like it with the quiver on, I notice no noise difference… [=}=]

    Quiver on. Heavier, easier to hold (especially in wind), and the arrows
    are always in the same place when you need another one. [=}=]

    I have the 2 piece and hunt with it on. I’ve been shooting all spring and summer with it off but just two weeks ago I started shooting with it on just to get use to the weight difference. To be honest with you I like shooting with it on better.

    plan on carrying one arrow! JMO [=}=]

    I have hunted with it on and off. Killed elk and deer with it on, but I shoot the Alpine quiver and taking it on and off is real easy

    I keep mine on all the time because I don’t like to change the feel of my bow if I’m practicing, in a tree, on the ground ect. Also it’s handy having arrows on the ready, especially on the stalk. I use the fixed model Arrow Web and it’s silent. It also holds my arrows firm so they don’t vibrate or make noise. I have noticed other quivers that really hum with vibration so I could understand why some do and some don’t.

    I take my quiver off and hang it in the tree positioned for quick access. My bow balances better and is, I believe, quieter without it. And the bow is obviously lighter without the quiver.
