Big Jim is the one that I use the most. I also have the GN strap on.

I really like the "NEW" Selway strap on system. I like the nice deep hood with "cup" protection, the fact that you can easily angle the hood/gripper to line up properly. The double prongs for the straps are real nice too, very secure.

Not the "fanciest" out there, but definitely worth a look.

thanks so much for all the replies guys. it looks like the vast majority uses a bow quiver. I wonder if its to add weight for a more stable bow or just easy access to arrows. Maybe both. I have a back quiver I got a couple weeks back just for when I go noodling and such but havent really considered it for hunting. Guess I'll take it on my shed hunting outings and see how it works. Once again, Thanks so much to all for the replies and help. Tom

Try a side quiver. I use a Stalker model I bought here and like it alot. I used a back quiver at times until I slipped going down a hill and landed on my back. There were only field points and blunts in it at the time but I didn't like the idea of it happening if there had been broadheads in the quiver. I can hold the side qiver close or in front when going down a hill and move it out of the way when it's time to shoot. Easier to draw from than a back quiver as well. Just my opinion.

I have used a back quiver for years but have been thinking about trying a bow quiver. The Kanati slim Jim looks pretty neat. Anyone tried it out?

also looks like a couple of the models suggested use velcro to strap on to the bow. Seems like that would be noisy. I hate velcro !!

I shot with a friend last weekend who had a Thunderhorn Linx bow quiver on his Liberty Edge hybrid longbow. 6 arrow capacity looked good and seemed to work very very well. 1 piece easy on/off.

Watch the classifieds and you'll find a deal on something you can use. I just picked up a Selway strap on for half price.....seems to work pretty good!

Ive checked fleabay and other places for a quiver. Not looking real hard just yet as I wanna see how the bow shoots without a quiver first. It will be here Monday. [Smile]

I prefer a bow quiver for hunting. I have three longbows and two have Thunderhorn Small Fry's and the third has an EFA. I like both of these quivers.

Another vote for Kanati Pro. One of the best.
