No bow quiver. I use an Arrowmaster. Wise up, use something.

I don’t know how to post a pic but I bought a Farrwest leather Absorkee hip quiver. I’m loving it so far.

I agree with everything safety wise. Do not walk around without the broad head covered. I personally use hip quivers. Besides cutting yourself, the bow could potentially be marred, the string cut. So many reasons to not do this

I'm a ground hunter and suppose I'm generally a back quiver guy. It just suits my uses. I use a few side/Lakota style quivers on occasion, but I would NEVER attach a quiver, or anything, to my bow. It completely throws off the balance I worked hard to establish.

I like back quivers because I can load that sucker up. I've carried dozens of arrows for extended stays in the woods, and even used them to carry small game during a hunt. I'm due to make a new one and just got some real nice leather for it. Gonna kick it up a notch this time since I got some new leather working tools.

When I was a kid I climbed trees with a Kwikee quiver, no 'safety hood' give them a bump and safety hood flew off anyway. never got cut once, but one day when it was about 5 below I got a shot at a deer. I missed, went for another arrow, wood, and broke it trying to get it out of the quiver slots. I went to a back quiver and stayed with them since. The same year my hunting buddy had a shot at a small buck, he had a Bear 4 banger with spring wires, rattle magic with Bear 308 arrows. Who ever had it before him had something fatter than 308s. He drew at the deer noticed his arrows were not fixed in the cup, shot, and cut his bow string and blew up his Herters recurve. Even today with the improvements, the name of the game with bow quivers is get the best one that holds your size shaft secure. Some of them still, that have been hanging onto 23/64 cedars can stretch and then not like carbons.

I use a back quiver. Just don't like having something on my bow. I have a howard hill thats broken in and I could do a cartwheel without an arrow falling out.

Arrowmaster by Rod Jenkins for me, tried bow quivers several times and they are not for me.

Years ago I missed a nice deer while using a larger quiver on the bow. I had put the quiver on the bow not realizing it would change the point of impact. I took the quiver off and never used it again. About 10 years ago I ran into someone with a small 3 arrow quiver that seem to have some merit. We bought his leather and dies and started making it to sell. Since then we have made numerous improvements, and have added a variety of quivers from 1 arrow to 6 arrow.

The point that I'd like to make is that all bow quivers are not alike. We have tested several quivers on the market with mixed success. Some will affect the point of impact significantly, while others will not. We guarantee the 3 and 4 arrow quivers we make not to negatively affect the arrow impact.

For half day hunts I can't imagine using anything other than a 3 or 4 arrow bow quiver.

Years ago I started paying attention to who actually killed stuff, yes Hunters that actually kill stuff. And just don't talk about stuff. I noticed that these people who actually killed stuff, yes actually killed stuff, most of these guys had hero pictures with bow Quivers on their bows!!!!... Therefore I use a bow quiverrrrr

No offense Charles but that's the most ridiculous reply I've ever heard. Are you serious?

Don't know what a hero pic is, saw many photos of Fred Bear, Howard Hill and other legends of the trad archery hunting world using back quivers. I got nothing against a bow quiver just don't care for them myself. Why are you hijacking my post with this nonsense anyway.
