      I am a huge fan of the GFA style quiver. I have used it since I got an early one from Fred the first time they had them for sale. Absolutely the best big game quiver available, in my opinion.

      However, I am hunting small game, especially rabbits,more and more with with my bow. Daisy The Wonder Beagles couldn’t care less if I actually kill the rabbits we chase, so I am using a 20 gauge less and my bows more. Besides, I have probably 200 arrows that are “rabbit arrows”. And very few of them have same diameter, so my GFA doesn’t hold them well.

      So I am looking for a large capacity back quiver. I have one I built from one of the old Wyandotte Leather kits years ago, but it is kinda “eh”. Not deep enough, I think.

      All of this is a meticulous ruse to buy a cool back quiver:D So please show me yours, I just might blatantly copy you and order one just like it:lol:

      Roger –

      I am surprised also – usually there is a large group of members who very much prefer the Back Quiver!

      I use Bow Quivers almost exclusively. The only Back Qs I have are from my early days and no longer manufactured. I have not used them in a long time, sorry.

      Hopefully some other folks will chime in soon

      Too lazy here to take a pic to post, and she ain’t purdy nohow, but I have a vintage Shakespeare back quiver with one special feature: snapped to it is a metal WS deer tag from 1966. I use it for rabbit hunting only, thus it’s a repository for all my dispensable arrows. I prefer a belt quiver for roving and ranges, and a bow quiver for hunting. I know some fellers have gorgeous, elaborate custom leather back quivers (that must weigh a ton even empty), and others with handmade fur and hide quivers, and also am surprised they’re not showing ’em off here.

      My brother and I are planning to have custom quivers before February. I currently use a worthless one for my longbows and my recurve I carry a bow quiver. I hope to be able to show a picture of a nice back quiver soon.

      Have you noticed how American Indians used their back quivers? They had their flatbow in a long thin quiver with about a foot of the bow sticking out…which was attached to their arrow quiver with a couple straps. The arrow quiver was pretty long…I’m guessing so arrows would stay put while :wink:on horseback. πŸ˜‰

      Roger,

      I know it’s not what you’re looking for, but here’s my “quiver”:

      For $30, it serves me well. Keeps quite a few arrows (so long as they are field points, 2-blade broadheads or the like, no Judos or 3 or 4 blade broadheads). Also keeps my bow stringer, glove/tab, lunch, water, book, …

      Again, I know it’s not what you are looking for, but since no one else was posting pictures… πŸ˜‰

      Be well.

      Alex

      Here is my stumping quiver…I custom made this to work as a side quiver and back quiver as needed. I also have sewn in a place in the front to hold three broadheads…just in case.

      i have made a high capacity back quiver from some plans i found on the web. it is stiched with leather thong and has leather thong round the top forming an arrow seperator, and a simple strap i cut to fit my shoulder witha gold buckle for a bit of bling. it can hold about 20 arrows, i ahve never tried more than this, and although i like it, a bow quiver is much preferred in most cases because i can just pick it up and go.

      i use a back quiver when i’m roving though.

      Just saw this thread sorry…here are a few. I am a fan of the Howard Hill back quivers and Sunset Hill makes a really good one as well. these are the only 2 Hill style I am familiar with personally.

      Can’t wait to hear your review and see pics!

      That knife is a lil’shaver from Ron LaClair BTW…..a gift for my newborn son from a fellow tradbowhunter I met. I had to try her out:D

      That was the sunrise lighting last Saturday right after the hellacious wind stopped blowing!

      Sweet! Classic with the natural barred turkey feathers!

      I used mink oil and a couple of treatments of olive oil on mine to get it broken in to where it will collapse properly (just be careful or it could discolor if you put it on too heavy). Now even if I lean way over in the treestand my arrows will not come out and they stay quiet. I took a few days of working it and folding it and sitting on it folded over in my vehicle to and from work…but now it is sweet!

      That quiver of your is a dandy!

      I used my new MAL back quiver all day yesterday chasing rabbits. I loved it! Very easy to put arrows back in, they are positioned perfectly to withdraw quickly.
