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!
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.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
