how many arrows

I carry a full quiver. Only because I carry 2 judo tips and 6 broadheads. Just because I used to hunt where you could get thick into hogs. Now that I'm not there any more because the idiot doubled his price(8000 dollars for access to 200 acres........) I hunt where there are only deer and carry 3 or 4 arrows only. I still take the judos since I stump shoot every so often.

Heres what I look at. Odds of a second shot are slim but prepare. Thats 2 arrows. now knock a deer down and have to finish him after a spine shot, add another 1-2. I figure I can safely get by with 3-4 arrows.

Change that to elk or mule deer away from the road I"ll still carry a full quiver. You just never know. And are too far away for a 30 minute walk to the truck.

I flew into alaska with 18 arrows last fall. I never got a shot at a caribou but had a blast and lost a few judos on ptarmigan etc.... When you are 4+ hours air time from the nearest pro shop, carry more!

how many arrows

I carry 8 arrows when deer hunting. 3 4-blade 125's, 2 for grouse at 125gr and 3 2-blade 125's. Under some hunting situations I feel the 2-blade gets easier penetration.

how many arrows

I carry 6- three blade 125 gr wasp loaded arrows in my case but some where between my jeep and the end of the hunt I usually leave my quiver and backpack and just nock one arrow. I love to try sneeking in on deer in our food plots. I've gotten plenty close enough for a shot but somthing always screws up before I get to release.
