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.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
