Thanks Trap
I'm still pic challenged.

I got that with a few bows off craigs list,when I got home and took a look I was surprised.

Did "TaylorMade" make many archery products?

Any idea what year?

The bow its off is a late 50's Barr Apache,had great old camo limb covers

Great thread
Kurt

Cool Stuff guys,

For me, old quivers are just about a cool as old bows.

When Kurt first showed me the pics my first thought was of crushed limbs from over tightening. Ouch !!!!!

I have one coming to me soon that has a little history attached. Can't wait to see it. Stay tuned.

Me too Trap I love those old quivers.They did crush the limbs once in a while with those bolt mounted type quivers.Whiffens quivers mounted the same way and would crack the fiberglas if tightend to tight.bd

Hey Chuck- since this thread was brought back up, I have to ask you about the combo spring arm and bolt-on leather-top quiver you posted a pic of back in October- that's not a stock quiver is it? I actually thought about cannibalizing one of my old spring arm quivers and taking the bolt-on bottom bracket off anothe leather top and using it on my T/D but I decided the top spring arm wasn't long enough for what I wanted to use it for. I bet you put this one together; Good Job! Grant

Hey GY you gotta get a long upper arm to fit the take down.The short arm will not fit the T/D's because of the latch(arms to short).I have them in green for the laster models but do not have a long brown upper arm...Heck I do'nt have one for my own 4 arrow leather cap..bd

Trap, I have your quiver packed. Over the years I've accumulated a bunch of stuff. Most of it now resides in collections other than mine, with the exception of books, magazines, photos and other paper items. I specialize in the written, recorded history. Others in the equipment of our past. I found I couldn't do both justice so I stuck with what I enjoyed most. The other was traded, sold or given away.

As Trap said, this quiver has a history and belonged to the late Sterling Harrell, my neighbor and friend. When Sterling passed, with the exception of a phone call to express my families symapathy, I avoided his widow because I knew she would be plagued with folks wanting to buy his stuff, and he had one or two exceptionally rare items.

Weeks passed and a mutual friend of Sterling and I called, saying Mrs. Harrell wanted to see me. I drove the mile or so to Sterling's home and as suspected she'd had many inquiries, particularly about Sterling's arrow collection. She told me the family had taken what they wanted and she still had a bunch of stuff and was tired of worrying with folks. At this point I told her to show me the stuff she didn't want and I'd purchase the entire lot.

Sterling had a small storage building in the back that he kept odds and ends in. I checked it to see what was there and what do you think I found? His arrow collection that everyone was bugging her to buy that she didn't realize was there. Sterling had, for some unknown reason, moved it there from the place he normally kept it his house.

Sterling was more interested in the utility of his equipement rather than the collectability, and it shows on most of his stuff because he used it.

I've been offered more than I sold it to Trap several times in the past but didn't sell it for some reason....maybe bad vibes. Something about Trap touched a note this time and I sold it to him for a reasonable price and I'm happy to see it going to someone who will enjoy this piece pf history.

I'm keeping Sterling's Hill style quiver he used most of the time. He was a fixture here in Ruston and missed by many. Most anytime driving by his home you'd see him in the front yard practicing trick shots or teaching someone how to shoot a longbow.

The year or so before Sterling died he wanted some white arrows. I made him up a dozen of full length dipped white with white maxi-fletch feathers, about as white as it gets. [Smile] I'd had his stuff for a couple years, when for some reason I was fooling around with this old Hill back quiver and notice something I'd missed before. When I turned the quiver upside down and dumped the contents, a broken, white arrow with a bloody Pearson Deadhead fell out...the last arrow Sterling used to kill an animal, one from the dozen I'd made him.

I'm honored to have it headed my way Cliff. Thanks for dropping by to "tease" these guys a little and share some history.

Check out the thread title. "Quivering with Anticipation" I can't wait to see the quiver. I'll share it with the rest of you guys as soon as I can.

This is pretty cool guys. Stay tuned.

Trap's getting one just like that; suede, no chest strap; but Glenn's signature is on the hood instead of the catalog. [Smile]

Mrs. Trap said I could buy it so I guess I've been a good boy. She also mentioned I better build a heck of alot more feather rests so I'm not real sure.
