7.

I'm an "opportunist".

And I'm not a good shot, but I shoot often.

3 and only intend on using one most times. If you shoot multiple animals on stand blood trails could get mixed up and result in losing animals, just a possibility. Anything more than that is just extra weight.

If I can borrow 2 from someone else, or they help me find mine in the weeds, then 4 will fit in my quiver.

Me neither. I messed up and lost a gray fox once after accidentally nocking the wrong arrow for a follow up shot. Lesson learned.

Pay attention, he asked about a quiver not a bow


I actually hunted all last weekend with only one arrow because I left my quiver at my other lease. I ended up killing two does with that arrow.

5 - I hunt public and I've had trips where I get to my spot and only have 1 or 2 arrows left after crashing through trails a couple miles to get where I'm going. I also had to stick an Aoudad 3 times once and I was clean out at the time as I only carried 3 back then.

6, because that's how many it holds. First thing I do in the stand is hang the quiver on a nail. I tend to carry three sharp broadheads and one dull one, and two field points.

It has happened that I've needed a second arrow a time or two. I also usually take practice shots with the field points before I get out of the stand.
