I use a bow quiver for shooting pine cones or targets but never found one I liked to hunt with. I work with leather and wood as a hobby so I can make almost anything. But I find myself hunting with a nocked arrow and one in my hand. Anyone else do this?

Arrow in the hand to me sounds like a recipe for injury. I do the nocked arrow on spot and stalk depending, but that in itself carries some risk, but at least the bad end is out away from the body. I don't like bow quivers, to me they throw off the balance of the bow. I much prefer a good side quiver that encloses the arrows with a fletch cover. I'm also a fan of the Catquiver.

Heck no. Not in the thickets I hunt in. I actually put a strap on a kwikee quiver and throw that over my shoulder. Works pretty good.

I have no idea why I typed in bow quiver I meant any type of quiver in general. Never used a bow mounted quiver.

I use a cat quiver. I hunt mostly from tree stands and hang it on a hook in easy reach.

I keep a single arrow on the bow. The rest in a side quiver.

Moving I have one relatively quickly.

On stand I have a fast second shot if needed (paid off twice so far).

No arrow on string. I have carried the arrow with my fingers about 3inches up from the broadhead. If I was to slip and start falling I can pitch the arrow away. But these days the terrain is just to unstable in the desert. I made one of those side quivers like in the “How to section” on this site.

I use a side quiver. I have never liked a quiver on my bow!

Use a catquiver here and since hunting on the ground I just lean it against the tree where I sit-works well for me.

If you're talking NO quiver... I definitely do not like the idea of carrying around unprotected broadheads! Too much opportunity to injure yourself or others, and depending upon what you're doing - lots of opportunity to dull your broadhead(s).
This is obviously your choice... good luck - BE SAFE!!

Back quiver this year for me. My only complaint is you have to watch low branches when going through the thick stuff.

I use bow quivers, back quivers, and a side quiver depending on the scenario and my mood.

Bow Quiver by far dominates. Unlike BOHO, I don't have a real problem with thickets and bow quivers. Once I push my bow through the brush, I've already pushed my arrows through....which I LIKE...cause I can SEE where my quiver is going and keep it from catching on stuff...and its also quieter.

Heck...sometimes I even use TWO quivers on one hunt...one for small gamer, and one for large game.

For safety sake please don't carry broadheads around without protection.

I favor the GFA quiver, don't care for bowquivers(although they are pretty convenient), and occasionally use a back quiver, especially for stumping and small game.

I've had trouble with bow quiver causing a bow to torque. Not all but, some. Started using a Catquiver this year and am really liking it. I like a Selway hip quiver for 3d and around the place. Hunting with it I have to wear a como hood over the fletch or they wave around to much for my liking.

I would've taken better care of myself,if I'd known I was gonna live this long!

If you haven't cut yourself yet, you will. Tried that route back in the 60's. Get a quiver of some sort.
