Anyone else have this problem?

7 posts in this topic

I have a PSE Baby G which is a short bow and shoot 31 inch arrows. My problem is that when I put my quiver on and put the arrows in it they extend down beyond the end of the bow. Because of this the set up is a bit akward. I have thought about getting a extension (called a Hi Riser) to raise my quiver up. Anyone else have this problem or have other advice that might help me out?

Thanks

Use a detachable quiver and hang it in the tree by you.

I have that problem with my bow. It's 33 inches long but when I tip it to put it in the holder, my arrows rake my stand. Harveylee gives some good advice about the detachable quiver. I leave mine on if I use a tree peg for a holder but when I use it on th eplatform of my climber, I take it off. Doesn't seem to affect my accuracy (its never that great anyway! Ha Ha)

Make your own quiver. Take a piece of roof drain (plastic) gutters and make one side solid. Put some kind of "cushion" or foam in the closed end. Then make straps so you can put it on like a back packk.

This is very comfortable and very easy to reach back and get an arrow. When in a tree just take off and put around a tree.

Like Harvey Lee said you could just take it off. But, I went out and bought a Cat Quiver. It is the one that is a fanny pack with shoulder straps. I love it!! Quiet and I can carry all my stuff. I just strap it to the tree and my arrows are right there. Also It keep the fleching dry and protected in a hood.

I pretty much always take my quiver off. It's just so much easier to hold the bow or lay across your legs when you're seated. The times I have shot with it on I couldn't see that affected anything one way or the other.

could you describe your setup a little more. Is it a piece of gutter the same length as your arrows or just a piece to make a cap with foam in it? What do you use for your straps? Do you have a picture of one?

Thanks for the info and idea.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
