I finally got my new bow (Darton Tempest Ext) zeroed in and noticed a difference in how it shoots with the attached quiver and 4 arrows vs. without the quiver/4 arrows.

I initially tuned it in WITHOUT the quiver and arrows attached to the bow. All was well and very consistent bulleyes. However, when I attached the quiver (quikee quick connect) to the bow, my arrow placement was consistently OFF (high an to the left). I made sure the quiver was secured with locking knob.

Once I removed the quiver/arrows, the accuracy returned to my initial result of center bulls. I'm glad I discovered this so I can remove the quiver when hunting. I never noticed that much of a difference on my old bow.:confused:

Has anyone had this experience? Can this be considered normal or am I'm missing something? Just wanted to get a gut check before the opener!

Thanks in advance!

you are probably torqueing the grip a lil bit to compensate for the dramatic shift in balance. I have a xtra kwikee quiver bracket screwed to the outside of my seat climber.I just use a quiver to get a few bow bullets from the truck to the tree.

I never hunt with a quiver attached. In fact I haven't shot a bow with a quiver on it in a long time for this very reason....plus there is no need to add the extra weight to a bow while shooting. It throws the balance of the bow off and your bow will be louder.

You wouldn't think something like that would throw the bow off but apparently is can. Thanks for your input. I plan on removing the quiver when I reach my stand.

Have a good hunt this season!

W/quiver vs. w /o quiver

I always had the same problem and some times when I hunt from the ground it wasn't practicle to remove the quiver. I purchased the Fuse posi lite quiver and it is so light and quiet that you don't even know it is on the bow. I love it and now my arrows are always with in easy reach. Fuse makes two different posi lite quivers one holds 4 arrows and the other one holds 6 arrows. They cost more than most other brands but the advantage is worth the extra cost. You can check them out on the Hoyt web site.:thumbs_up
