      Bad news, I tore my miniscus and have surgery on Fri. the 29th. I need something more to do than read. Does anybody know a good site where I can get some specs or a pattern for a back quiver. I still am running a bow type quiver during hunting season, but I got the leather and the time and allways wanted one anyway. It would have to be reversable as I don’t know if I want to shoot right handed or switch to left hand yet. Thanks for any help, Jim in NY

      nybubba,
      Sorry to hear about the miniscus. Hope you heal quickly.
      I made some back/side quivers a few years ago that have an opening mid way to take arrows out from the side. It can be used like a normal back quiver or a stalker style quiver. There are some pics over on the bowyers bench forum, hand made bow quiver thread. I did make a pattern in case I ever need to make another one. I’ll be glad to send you the dimensions or a copy of the pattern. It is just my take on a popular design. All you need is a hole puncher, awl, scissors and some leather laces and leather for the quiver. Let me know and I’ll find my pattern.

      South of Buffalo, and so far west that when the carp die on lake Erie I can smell’em. Angola,NY to be exact. When we moved here three yrs ago I had no idea New York was such a beautifal state. Growing up in the panhandle of Nebraska I only thought of pavement and skyscrapers in the northeast region.:o what a surprise nybubba

      Duncan, Looks very good, is the bottom quiver a “double barrel”? Or is there two of them on the same hook? I’m undecided as what type to go with right now. I’m looking over quivers in 3Rivers and such and putting together ideas jotting down dimensions. I think the most difficult thing for me to picture is the configuration of the back strap/s. Maybee I am just over thinking it and should just put a strap from the top to the bottom and try it out, and make adjustments from there{experimentation what a concept}. I will keep your offer in mind. Nice riggs by the way. nybubba

      nybubba,
      You are actually seeing 1 back quiver and 2 side/stalker quivers hung together. Not a double barrel. I liked this pattern so well I made 3 of them. My son has the 3rd one. It can be worn like a back quiver but arrows can be taken from the rear instead of over the back. For left or right hand just position the strap on the side that works for you. I made the strap 2 peice with adjustment holes. Put some deer antler and turkey feather here and there for decoration. Should last a life time.

      nybubba, it’s not a pattern, but (if my memory is correct) in ‘Hunting the Hard Way’ Howard Hill give the specific dimensions (and a sketch, I think) for his back quiver, I made a couple of them in years back, and they are still as servicable as when new. Hope that helps.

      nybubba,

      Here are some details on the quiver I made. If you need the actual pattern just PM me with your address and I’ll drop one in the mail to you.

      The round end cap, I used a tomato paste can to trace the circle. The shoulder strap is 1″ wide and I made it adjustable.

      I sewed the end cap on first using enough thong to keep going along the bottom side. Next I sewed up the top side. I continued the stitch around the top, that’s optional, just punch more holes if you want it. I used a hole puncher but I have also used an awl with success. Then attach the shoulder strap left or right which ever you need. I put a 1″ piece of high density foam into the bottom of the quiver to protect the end cap.
