Ye Brent, Ha Ha, she thinks it's funny too. Maybe the two of you should get together and think of new ways to torture me. LOL

I probably would have ignored her, but my three girls 9, 7 and 4 were there when she suggested putting it under the tree and of course they jumped for joy at that idea.

Well here it is folks. Just an old quiver to some I suppose, but to me it's kinda special.

You've probably already read some of the quiver's history, recounted by Cliff Huntington here on this thread.

The quiver was owned by Sterling Harrell of Ruston Louisiana.

Glenn St. Charles mentions Sterling in his book "Billets to Bow" on page 99 within a short chapter on Snapshooting. Glenn recognized Sterling's style of shooting as one of simply lobbing arrows out there and letting them go when it felt right. I figure he must have been fairly good to catch Glenn's eye.

At some point along the way Glenn St. Charles signed the quiver. I'm honestly not sure if Sterling had that done or if Cliff did.

The National Field Archery Association patch is dated 1962 and one can only speculate that Sterling attended the event in his neighboring state of Arkansas and perhaps wore the quiver while there.

In any case, It's a suede model St. Charles back quiver with no chest strap and it does have the 3 rivets and metal band on the inside to hold form. Not sure of the exact age of the quiver but it was introduced to the Bear catalog in 1961 and remained in suede untill 1964 when it was offered in Elk Hide.

It's an awesome piece of archery history and I'm proud to be, as Chuck says, the "caretaker" of it for the time being.

Thanks Cliff, and if there's anything you'd like to add please do so.

I had Glenn sign the quiver at a PBS Bi-Annual get together in Charlotte, NC. Glenn was nice enough to send a signed and inscribed book to Sterling's wife Mozelle when I notified him that Sterling had passed.

Sterling, and I believe his son Van, shot at that NFAA National in 1962 in Hot Springs.

Sterling hunted here in Louisiana with Ben Pearson and was invited to one of Pearson's International hunts, one that Bob Swinehart attended. Sterling was fond of telling about his time visiting and jawing with Swinehart.

Sterling was instrumental, along with Ben Pearson's assistance, in getting an archery program here at Louisiana Tech [Archery; July 1961; pg. 42].

Sterling was inducted into the Louisiana Bow Hunters Hall of Fame. His family and I had to do some fancy footwork to get him to the BSBA Annual Convention for his "surprise" induction. We were able to convince him to accompany me, even though he wasn't feeling his best. He felt a whole lot better on the drive home. [Smile]

He was a good fellow and always available to promote traditional archery. I believe he beat Dan Quillian in an aerial contest at the the big longbow shoot that used to be held in Alabama; he was pretty good on moveing targets. You can see that in those video clips posted elsewhere on this site.

Lots of great, old classic quivers in some of your collections. Sterling would likely tell you guys to "use'um."

Excellent pictures and stories about the St. Charles quiver and about Sterling.It always makes these wonderful old "artifacts" more interesting to have a little history to go along with them.Some of my most favorite items in my small collection are not necessarily the most perfect,or the rarest,but the ones that have a little story to go along with them.Great stuff!

That is a dandy Trap, glad you have it. And the history with it, is priceless.

I've wondered how big of a library you guys could amass. On a site with the pictures and stories,listed with some thought. The treasure it would be for all to see. The online museum and history of traditional archery. [campfire]

Thanks for sharing the quivers and history Van.

Folks, I've always enjoyed Van's posts on TG and the great vintage pictures he's posted of Ben Pearson and others.

Recently I posted a picture of Sterling Harrell's St. Charles quiver on another thread and Van inquired about how I had ended up with it.

It wasnt untill I read Van's profile (because I wanted to know what name to call him by) that I made the connection between Sterling Van Harrell III (Van/TX) and the name Sterling Harrell on the St. Charles quiver. Father and Son of course. (Sometimes it takes me a while)

Van pointed me towards the video clips of Sterling doing a little trick shooting on this website. If you have time, take a look fellas. Pretty neat stuff.

Thanks for the history lesson Van.
