Hunting with a Quiver │ The Advantages and Disadvantages
If you were to ask 100 archery hunters if they keep their quiver on their bow while hunting or remove it for the hunt, you would probably split the pool right down the middle. While the philosophy of removing their quiver from the bow while hunting is becoming more popular, there are still advantages to keeping it locked on tight for the hunt. In this article we will explore the advantages and disadvantages to this topic.
The number one answer given by hunters when asked why they might remove their quiver while hunting is regards to limited mobility when in the deer stand or blind. There is no doubt that when you are doing your very best to conceal yourself from the wary eyes of that big buck, that having a quiver full of arrows tipped with G5s on the side of your bow can add an extra layer of complexity. If you are packed in tight to your stand or blind, your quiver on the side of your bow while bow hunting can at times limit your mobility, making it difficult to get that shot off when you need to.
The second most common answer given by hunters is the issue of balance and shot placement. Many hunters feel that having the quiver on the side of the bow can cause them to overcompensate for the shot due to the extra weight added by the quiver and arrows.
