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!
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
