    4 in a bow quiver and a plastic rod tube cut to fit my arrows with foam at either end for extra arrows. The tube stays in the boat or in my pack. Works well for me.

    I bought a bow mounted quiver when I bought my bow and have never anything else. I usually practice with 6 arrows in it, taking one out at a time. When hunting I usually only carry 4. I figure if I miss 4 times, its time to go home.

    Same goes for me. I've never had a problem doing this either.

    I'd have a bow quiver if my bow had holes for one, I just wear it over my shoulder, its got 5 arrows, 2 judos and 3 broadhead
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default Different situations

    I use a few. I have a bow mounted for some things. A small Cat quiver with a sling for goats and such and sometimes put the quiver in the pack when climbing mountains. I want to develope a 1 arrow quiver bor the bow. So I can approch with one on thhe rest but have another easily at hand.

    Nope, it's just for the "what if" factor and to have a combination of arrows. You know, flu-flu's, judo's, blunts, etc.. Besides, I've NEVER met a human who hunts with just 1 arrow or 1 bullet... Do you carry just 1?

    8 arrow quiver, brand isn't important but its a PSE off my old bow. Its almost 15 years old now I would guess. For me, the extra weight makes the bow more stable. My groups aren't as good without my quiver on, or if my quiver is empty.

    I've got an old Pegasus quiver mounted to my bow. It is a two piece and mounts under the limb bolts. I really like it because it is quiet and the length between the parts really supports the arrows well. Only bummer is that it doesn't come off very easy and I can't get my bow in the nice case my wife bought me.... (now she keeps her bow in it )

    Like Longhunter, I shoot longbows & usually use a Selway bow mounted quiver. It's convient & I like the extra massweight when shooting.
    I just picked up a 54" Fedord 560 TD recurve, & I'm not sure what I'll use on it yet. I think I still have a Selway recurve quiver around, & that will be my 1st try.

    I use a one piece detachable Mathews quiver, kind of a rip off price wise but 1 of those things, I just had to have.

    I've always liked the idea of a hip quiver but the bow mounted one hasn't failed me yet, I always practice with 3-4 arrows in it.

    Default cat quiver

    I have the Cat Quiver and have used it for serveral years now and will never go back to bow mount. All arrows are easily accessiblebut are always out of the way. The side pockets carry everything needed to field dress and then some. I love it!!

    To those that use a hip mounted quiver, do you ever find that it makes it more difficult to trudge through thick brush or climb over logs and what not? I've never used a hip mounted quiver in the field, but I found them to be annoying even on the range.

    I use an Alpine Sof-Loc bow mounted quiver on my Mathews Switchback. I usually carry my bow with a sling slung across my back. That's worked very well for crawling through brush and such, but it seems like every way I've tried gets hunt up when walking through thick alders.
