View Full Version : A good hunting backquiver...

May 11th, 2005, 08:29 PM
Howdy folks,

I'm looking at using a back quiver for hunting this coming season.. The last couple of years I've been using a side quiver on my compoun, and I really hated it :angry: . I'll be using this back quiver for both of my bows(compound and recurve). For me, its just seems more natural when hunting..

What I'm looking for is a good back quiver for this season.. I've looked at the ones at cabelas but was wondering if there are any other makers of back quivers..

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

just be careful...you might get one with a fur lining iwth leather that is softer so i'tll comform to the arrows nad keep them from rattling..i LOVE a back quiver..very easily manueverd through the woods...if you need to duck down under things or crawl through brush you can tuck them under your arm etc...but you ARE DRAWING BROAD HEADS! so unless you want a free shave and haircut...watchi yourself

i have this..http://cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/vertical-item.jhtml?id=0004449415243a&navAction=push&navCount=2&indexId=cat20019&podId=0004449&catalogCode=QS&parentId=cat20019&parentType=index&rid=&cmCat=MainCatcat21424&hasJS=true

Take a look at 3riversarchery.com or kustom king traditional archery.They have a good selection of leather back quivers.You may also want to take a look at the bushmaster quiver from simmons archery it is a camo covered tube that totally encases your arrows keeping your feathers from taking a beating.You can also buy or make individual sheaths to put on your broadheads to keep them sharp while in your quiver and to prevent slicing the back of your neck open when pulling them out.Good luck

I don't use a back quiver myself, but I've read from more than one person who've made them and endorse them for hunting that the connection point for the strap should be about eight inches up from the bottom of the quiver and the leather should be liberaly saddlesoaped to soften it up.

search on Leatherwall (http://www.bowsite.com/bowsite/tf/lw/threadsx2.cfm) for quiver.........I did this just yesterday and found lots of good links and pics of homemade quivers......

...Steven Catts has the finest back quivers bar-none...he has a website that I can't for the life of me think of at this moment, but punch in his name and let the magic box do the rest !!!!

I also like the new Thunderhorn hip quiver I have received....top quality and rides very nicely for me....upon request, they even made me an arm guard to match or two tone leather......good stuff !!!!

Not quite in the same vein as the leather HH style, but don't forget to check out the 'Catquivers' by Rancho Safari also.

robk ...

that quiver setup looks great ......... but ............. with the "cup" being shallow, aren't you afraid a broadhead could slip out or you miss the cup when putting an arrow in it and contacting the back of your leg(s)?

BTW ... i like your avatar ... i was with the 25th during the war in 'nam.
