I have always carried a quiver to my tree, but have never shot at a deer with my quiver attached to my bow. I have always had another mount attached to a branch within quick reach. The extra dollar or two has always paid off for me this way.

Pro's and con's, quiver on your bow my be the best as you have everything in one hand all togather, but i would take it off once you get in your stand, it's added weight, bulky, cut's down your line of sight when at full draw, get the picture.

I have always hunted with my quiver off, but I do carry my bow to my stand with the quiver on. I tend to practice a few times just in case I have to shoot with it on. It does add weight to your bow and probably will through your shot off a little but with practice you will be fine. It may also add a little noise to your bow.

I have always used a Kwikee Quiver. Attached for the walk in, off it comes when in the stand. I hang it on the tree I'm in. I have never liked the balance or feel of shooting with the quiver on the bow.

I 2nd that..Love the tree mount for the Kwikee.
If I do shoot with my quiver on I am about 2" left.

i have a bolt on fuse two piece and leave it on year around does not bother me one bit and some of the newer quivers also quiet the vibration of your bow a little more

I hunt with a 2 peice and it stays on.
I practice with it on and hunt with it on.

I prefer the extra weight.
I shoot steadier with a slightly heavier rig.

I normally shoot with it on so i hunt with it on, i think its really personal preference, or if you can shoot better groups one way or the other than stick with what works best

Yes. I like the added weight as well. I've always found a heavier bow to be more stable and easier to hold steady at full draw.

Quiver on while walking, off while hunting.
As far as the Rage heads go, don't get anything with foam, it will deploy the broadheads.

I have cheap quivers, they only have to hold the arrows and not have broad heads sticking out for me to like them. When I get in my tree, or stand, I take it off and hang it on a branch nearby. When you buy, take an arrow out of the for sale bin and check to see that it is not to difficult to put in and out of the quiver, but not so simple it will fall out either.

My begining years, the quiver was a pain in the butt to take off. So I just started practicing and hunting with it on. Years ago my ex bought me a new kwikee system, this one is smooth detatches easily.

I just dont shoot the same without it. It comes off when the bow goes in the case. Back on when I head for the field.

For Rages...no foam, just get one that has rubber holes for the tip of the broad head. Rage also recommends a two point arrow holder...just like it sounds...a quiver with a lower and upper arrow holder.

As far as on/off. If I'm in a stand it's off. I travel with it on and know where the arrows will fly with it on...just practice with on and off so you know where your arrows will impact, just incase you see bucky while walking in.
