Anyone know the story behind these? There not stil being manufactured like this right? What did someone find a stash in a wharehouse or something? How old is this design? I've seen them on old recurves that must have been from late 60s or 70s. I also remember seeing them on back shelves of old sporting goods store in town as a kid in the 80s with yellow packing and covered in dust that must have been 20years old then. I don't remember seeing that funny looking hood though just the clamps. Im thinking about picking one up for use on a selfbow

Yes they have been around for years. There are better options out there now. Ones that snug up better to the bow limbs.

I'll second EFA. I have one of those old kwikees somewhere, minus the hood. Never used it. Sure wouldn't want to use it with broadheads.

Im pretty sure I saw them on the kwikee website back in the fall, along with different variations of colors and camo for the modern quivers. Perhaps they were old stock? I know they arent there anymore, and the line-up of quivers is down to about 7 total.

I imagine the liability insurance on these would be astronomical(sp) now

I would not recommend these old quivers under any circumstance now. I have "experience" with it.

I used one, without the hood, on my Pearson Gamester in the 60s. One day when it was about 5 below a small buck came by. I was cold. The little buck stepped out of the thick cover about 25 yards away. I shot right over his back, he just stood there looking towards where the arrow hit branches. I went for another wood arrow. It would not budge. I tried a different arrow, it broke. My arrows already had grooves in them from taking out the arrows from the quiver, but when it was that cold the quick thing turned into a permanent clamp. My next set of arrows for that bow were 1918s, the Quicky thing would not hold on the skinny shafts at all. I bought one of those four arrow Bear spring quivers, it didn't like the 1918s either, so I put a strong rubber band around the arrows to keep them in place, they would still creep down from the hood after I shot, but at least they did not fall on the ground or try to cut my bow string. That is what killed my Pearson Gamster. One day the rubber band broke. When I shot at a fox, one of the broad heads came down and the bow string hit the broadhead and cut it, the bow split on that one shot.

Note that the hood has clips on it for attaching to an arrow in the quiver. Much better choices available now, I think I’d pass.

I used the hoodless quiver briefly. That was the year I glued razorblades to my broadheads, like Jack Howard did. I moved on to a better quiver after slicing a finger open. Jack Howard was correct...those razorbades really leave a bloodtrail!

I found them for sale a couple years back and picked one up just for old times sake.

I started as a boy back in about 1966. What a big shot I was to have a bow quiver. Of course, like most people, I couldn't figure the virtue of the hood. Yea, we know what a hood is good for, but this thing is more than a little deficient.

I can't believe I was climbing up and down these hill with exposed broadheads, but I was pretty much immortal at age 16, or so I thought.

Through the years, I've been through a few things, but Pavan has surely got me beat in foul-ups. I guess my foul-ups are mostly in different areas. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading Pavan's post. Made me smile.

Have a good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

They work good for blunts while stumping or small game hunting. I had one I used for a bit before I could save up for something else. The clip on hood is definitely not OSHA approved for broadheads.

If I can find mine you can have it. They won't work well on a very thick cored limb though, so a selfbow may be iffy.

This is my deer camp in 1958. We all used those types of quivers back then and they had no protective hoods in those days so you had to be very careful [scared]

There are a LOT better choices available these days. I have a pair of the old ones and would never use them again......dangerous & poorly designed. If you pay the shipping, I'll give you my pair. Buy you really DON'T want them ;-)

I have one that came with my Bear Alaskan. Had a green camo set of limb sleeves too which seemed to help it stay clamped in place on the limbs. Both the bow and quiver worked fine when that was all I had. The hood clipped to an arrow in the quiver. You just had to make sure it was not your best arrow. If you got down to that arrow while deer hunting, well you know.
