I take my quiver off once in the tree as well so the extra arrows don't hit anything if I need to take a shot. I can clip it with a carabiner to my gear strap or to my pack.I hear you about the quiver. I have shot a bunch of crossbows and compound bows. I have practiced with the quiver on for "just in case I jump a deer walking" but as soon as I hunt the quiver comes off. I tie a little loop of 550 cord to the quiver and it gets put on a gear hanger or tree branch, or goes in my pack.
