I've been using a bow quiver for years and always take it off the bow once I am in the tree or blind. So, I am really not interested in seeing other bow quivers. What types of side quivers or other quivers work well, particulary when packing a treestand on your back? What do you do with them on stand to keep a second arrow ready?

This is what I’ve used for several years , cheap copy of gfa. 15 bucks for quiver and a broken ratchet strap bolted to it with a loop of strap at top to hang when on stand. Strap goes over head and right arm, hangs under arm horizontally. Hang when on stand on my right side of tree or set with hood down when on ground.

When I used tree stands I always used a bow quiver. It was just easier and quicker in the long run. Used my last climber in the mid to late 80's sometime. I did like my TSS climber back then. Anyway, I still use a bow quiver many times nowadays but also have a back quiver and a home made Asbell style. Can't have too many quivers I suppose. I currently have a Bear 8 arrow spring arm on my Browning Nomad.

This an old Bear quiver. I hand tighten the bolts while carrying the bow. Once I'm in my stand I take the quiver off and just hang it on a hook which is screwed in to the tree I'm in. I hang it right behind me so all I have to do is just reach behind me for another arrow. Works for me.

I only bow hunt from a tree stand. When I started hunting I used a bow quiver,however, it was a constant source of frustration as I moved through the woods in the dark. Arrows would snag brush and be pulled from the quiver,or, bend. Grrrrrr!

I made a quiver from 4"drain grade PVC. It attaches to my pack, which when hoisted, is positioned to my right/off side, and I can then position it to easily offer the arrows to me. Problem free and suits my purpose, TA DAAAAH.

Not if used right You have to put your time in with them get used to them And you leave the strap little lose so you can rotate the quiver and tuck it under your arm when pushing the ruff stuff I hunt in the north woods were its thick

Which quiver I use depends on which bow I'm using:

I use 3, 4, and 6 arrow Kwikee Kwivers.

4 and 8 arrow Bear single spring arm quivers on my vintage Bear bows.

And this hip quiver.

To answer the rest of your questions I usually hunt public land and camp for 10 days or more. I've hunted the same areas for a decade so I usually check a few spots the first day and hang a stand or two in the best spots. I can carry my loc on in one hand and have my back quiver and backpack on my back. I try to hang my stands when there's not a lot of deer movement so I'm not really worried about trying to shoot a deer and carry a stand and ladder sticks a back pack etc. I hang my stand and either hunt that evening or the next morning and move my stands at midday if need be. The back quiver hangs on a limb or tree step making extra arrows as fast as anything. I can carry broadheads for deer, blunts for stumps and small game arrows. Back quiver is always handy and I wouldn't hunt without it. Once you find one that fits and learn to use it nothing else compares. Besides if I put a bow quiver on my Hill longbow it probably explode when I drew it back lol.

A back quiver is simple to use in brushy areas. I can grab the bottom of it with my left hand and pull it under my arm in a second or two. It rides that way through any area and I have a lot of areas that are very thick here in Pa. They have been used for centuries effectively.

I was wondering why lots of you guys don't like the quiver right on the bow. That is how i hunt.

I really like this quiver, traded for it years ago either her or another site. Straps on side of climber for easy arrow access and maneuvers through thick stuff easy enough.

Mine in the picture is a hip quiver that attaches to my belt and then I tie the string around my thigh so it doesn't flop around. Arrows face backwards away from the brush when I bend through it. I mostly hunt with my other bow with quiver attached, but I actually like a bare bow with no quiver attached to it better when going through brush and while on stand.

I use this side quiver that I made a few years ago. I hang it from the tree I happen to be in if I am in one.

Made my own from an unused wool bow sleeve. It holds three arrows plus my grunt tube. The dental floss attaches to leather broad head protectors. The small loop at the top of the leather strap goes over the top nock of my bow when hauling the bow up into my tree stand after I'm safely positioned.

I do not like to hunt with a quiver on my bow either. I have a small backpack that has a detachable quiver. Sometimes I walk to the stand with the quiver attached but most of the time I just carry the quiver as I walk to the tree or the stand. The little pack is very light and only has one shoulder strap to sling across your back.

I hunt with a bow quiver 90% of the time. But I really like this back quiver that was built by a leatherwaller named joe Roos, or Ottertails. We've become friends since I bought this quiver. First class quiver built by a first class individual.

From: Riverwolf
Date: 09-Jan-18




Love these threads also . I will also agree with sawtooth ..Joe's(ottertails) back quivers are top notch !

Thanks for the kind words snowshoe ;) Lots of great quivers being made , and its always good to have options to find what works best for you, your style, and hunting conditions ...

Hope no one takes any of my post as anti back quiver . I really love back quivers and the one I have (made by ottertails) , but truth is I have had a little click in my right shoulder from years of construction .Don't bother me much these days , but overhead motion like lifting a arrow up and out of a back quiver will eventually give me fits . One of the reasons I pursued a different style /alternative Years ago. Some truly awesome quivers everyone ;)

I have spoken with Anton since he posted pics of your quiver. He quoted me a price and it surprised me it wasn't $100+ more. Problem is trying to decide what I want for a design. Did ask for elephant leather. Pretty much extremely difficult to get.

Love my backquiver it gets better and better . One shortcoming.. judo points are a problem. I have used a Great Northern Strap on Not on my Hill bow but on my Roy Hall Caddo. Maybe need to use trimmer string and drill holes in the blunts?

Some really nice quivers here. I like the idea of a solid bow mounted quiver, just haven't found one I really like yet. This one I keep coming back to. A quick at home side quiver. Gets the job done, but in the heavy thicket can be a bit aggravating.

The back quiver is made from a exodic Welsh Ram I shot years ago. I use it for 3-D shoots and small game hunting. And I took the 2 spring arms off the Bear quiver and put a strap on. I tryed this quiver for the 1st time this year for deer hunting. I'm still trying to find the perfect quiver. I don't think there is any.
