I agree with the op, short hunting stabilizers don't do much. Reduce noise a little, they do make a convienant handle at times, but you'd probably be fine without one. Now moving up to a longer stabilizer would help, but at the cost of making your bow less manurevable in hunting situations.
I shoot my hunting bow in a dot league, Vegas faces not the big all blue ones. 62#'s, skinny carbon arrows, hha .019 slider, Sims 6" s-coil stabilizer, i shoot mid 580's. If I put on my long stabilizer, scope, and shoot fat arrows, i'll shoot low to mid 590's, mostly due to the fat arrows not the scope or stablilizer, although it is easier to shoot with those things on. So the small gain a much lomger stabilizer gives me is far outweighed by the convience a short stabilizer gives in hunting situstions.
