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!
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
