I just bought a new alpha max 35, in looking to set it up for elk hunting I am torn on which quiver to hang on it, I don't know if I want a fixed quiver or a removable quiver, what do you guys like the best for hunting the back country?
I have a Fuse 6 arrow fixed model on my hoyt, I like to have a enough arrows so after a couple of days into the hunt i'll find a old rotten stump and shoot some arrows into it with practice blades. Also i'll hage some leafs on it and use my bow to hide my face behind it sometimes. And i put a Fuse stablizer on it to match.
i have an octane 5 arrow quiver. the thing is amazing. the magnetic hood hold arrows tight, the quiver is silent when the bow is shot. the only downside is that it is a lil heavy but thats what makes it so dang quiet. mine is detachable, they run for about $120, ex girlfriend bought mine for me its a bit pricy but well worth it. sturdy, quiet, and holds arrows like a champ!
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
