I've yet to be in a hunting situation where the quiver attached to the bow would get in the way more than a nocked arrow sticking 2 feet out past the riser lol


You haven't been hunting long enough either ;\)


Explain a situation where it might get in the way?

Which situation would you like me to use as an example? If you hunt out of a climber, then there are many situations where the quivered arrows could come in contact with the bar—especially if your arrows stick out 2-4 inches beyond the bottom limb of the bow. It all depends on if your standing/sitting when you spot the deer, are you able to move your body to avoid the rail without spooking the deer or is the angle of the shot so steep that you come in contact with the rail with the quivered arrows.
I had a doe years ago that snuck in behind me as soon as I got up to hunting height and she was never going to pass in front of me. I hadn't had a chance to take off the quiver yet as I had just pulled up the bow and my pack was still on my back. Due to her being at my 4-5 o'clock and 20yds away I was unable to get a shot on her before she slipped back in the thick stuff behind me because the up rails on the summit were going to push against the quivered arrows. Basically, as with anything you do while hunting......minimize the circumstances that may cause potential problems for when the moment of truth arises. \:\)

My arrows do not extend below the bottom limb/cam and I always keep my seat and platform closer together during bow season. It gives me more room to shoot close shots granted its not as comfortable when sitting.

Problem solved and already considered.

Take it off if in a stand or blind. When I'm still hunting I'll keep it attached. Doesn't affect the way I shoot that I can tell.

Well then why in the hades did you ask in the first place, if you already knew what you were going to do? I hope your decision doesn't cost you the deer of a lifetime!

I always take the arrows out of my bow quiver and put them in a cloth one hanging on the side of my treestand. Clip the bow quiver on my pull up rope and lower it to the ground.

Quiver off, Matthews spider web quiver and it comes off in the stand. No additional weight or color (fletchings) moving with bow as I line up the shot. Like it much better without

Off the quiver is very annoying to me while shooting. Plus some of our stands have big shooting rails around them and they hit. And its just something else to worry about while trying to get a shot off. Not worth they chance to me.
