    I've noticed in a lot of videos guys are bringing a quiver with 6-10 arrows. I personally use a small one and usually only bring 3 arrows because they get in the way or caught on brush. Has anyone ever actually used more than 3 or is it just a "hey look at my expensive quiver and arrows macho thing? :)

    Yep this pretty much sums it up. Get bored not seeing deer but there's always squirrels or something running around.

    5 arrows. Four for big game. One for small game. Why? Because my quiver doesn't carry more than that.

    I take 5. I like it to be an odd number and learned to carry more than three after a time where I shot three arrows in one sit. Wasn't a sequence of shots you brag about...

    I carry five arrows in my quiver because that's how many it holds, two arrows normally have field tips to shoot at squirrels if I get bored.

    5 arrows, all complete with broadheads and nockturnals. A buddy told me time and time again not to bring arrows with field points out hunting, but I always wanted at least one for shots at undesirable targets. I told him, theres no way I would grab the wrong arrow...guess who was right...

    5 arrows all tipped killzones. Once I kill a deer ill use that BH for fox, coyote, groundhog, coon whatever is in seasons an I feel like killing. I really don't go out of my way to kill the little things though unless its a yote or pretty fox.
