Default got a new bow

i got myself a new bow , it's a bowtech stalker model with a 60 lbs. peak weight , with a cobra sidewinder wrapped fiber optic site , and a quickee quiver , and i got some carbon fiber arrows as well ,

i've been thinking however about getting a hip quiver instead of using the quicky quiver , i was told that when you site in and have arrows in the quiver , for each arrow you add or remove can change your point of impact.

any thoughts guys , this is my third bow but , i'm getting into bow more seriousely than before and my older bows that i have i'm told are out dated and slow ( martin m-1 tiger compound ,70 lbs. peak weight , ) ( bear compound , 80 lbs. peak )

any thoughts , or tips , and or suggestions are very appreciated

Having a quiver mounted to your bow does generally affect the shooting of the bow for any given individual. Without a bubble level I find myself canting the bow towards the quiver side because of the extra weight. As ky mentioned above, if you are going to hunt with a quiver on then practice with it on and then you will not have anything to worry about.

When you practice with the quiver on fill the quiver except leave out one arrow just like you were hunting and you've got the first arrow out of the quiver ready to shoot(i usually just keep some old arrows in the quiver for practice that way the weight remains the same for every shot)then just carry my practice arrows with me and set 'em on the ground or lean on a tree.I do this so my bow weight isn't always changing from shot to shot --it keeps the bow weight constant on every shot and putting all the arrows back in the quiver and taking them out for every shot only wears out the quiver faster.jmo.

thanks for the info guys ,

another question ,
when i practice , i was thinking about trying shooting from a tree stand down to a ground level target , ( trying to simulate tree stand hunting conditions ) and to find out where my bow will put the arrow . is this a good idea , or is there an easier or better way ?

Excellent idea Whelen. I'm sure you'll find that most of the guys on here do the same things in their back yards! Personally I'm packing a 3D target to my elk stand this weekend for a little practice there before I NEED to be out of there for September. I'll do the same for my deer stand(s) when I get it/them hung soon.
