      I’ve got a 1970 model Bear Takedown with a “B” riser (64″ bow). The riser is drilled for a stabilizer but that’s it and I don’t want to put any holes in an antique. Considering the long riser, I’m looking for a bow quiver that will clamp to the limbs without having the arrow fletching tangled up in the arrow gripper. My arrows are 22 1/2″ from tip of field point to start of fletching (worse case scenario). Any suggestions?

      I went through a similar process and came up with a good solution. There is a picture of it somewhere on the forum when I posted a picture of a pig I shot in Hawaii this past january. Do a search on my name and “first piggy”. It’s not a great picture, but it will give you the idea.

      It wraps on to the upper limb, and screws into the bottom quiver screw hole in the riser. It’s a custom thing I put together from parts from Eagles Flight Archery. I tried several combinations, but found this to be the best.

      I know you said there were no holes other than the stabilizer hole. But I wasn’t able to do a simple limb to limb clamp on without getting into the fletching. I believe you can use the stabilizer hole as the bottom clamping hole if you use an angle bracket to get from the front to the side. You may have to make that part yourself…

      But check with Don at Eagles Flight and tell him what you have and remind him of the quiver he made for me and he should be able to help you out.

      I made my own strap on bow quiver. Works great and I like the look of it. There are some details on another post titled making bow quivers.

      Great Northern has an adjustable strap on quiver . It should work on your bow . Good Luck !!!

      I’d recommend Kanati strap on. John is a GREAT guy to deal with and the quality is impeccable. I have the three arrow flat model (perfect for two blade heads). The straps are rubber, don’t mar and don’t move. Very easy to take on and off. There is no interference at all w/ fletching. Also, they are very customizable. John offers a variety of options to go fully custom or nice and simple, choice is yours 😀

      Another vote for the Great Northern adjustable. I wrap the feet with pieces of innertube for additional cushion and quiet.

      I have been modifying bow quivers that I’ve bought over the years until I’m happy. I do not like the fletching end of my arrows sticking out in front of the bow anymore than I can get away with so here’s pics of two conglomerations. I carry a G Fred style quiver with me but I like to shed it at times when I be in a stalking mode but I like more than one arrow with me. These quivers are way quiet and not bulky. Works for me.

      I use a Great Northern srap on quiver it holds six arrows and has a leather hood. I use it on longbows as well as my recurves. its extrmeemly light and even when loaded with a full compliment of arrows doesnt throw the balance of my bow off much! it requires a little firmer grip on the riser than when shooting without the Quiver attached but its agreat product ive been using for well over ten years.

      I mounted a vintage four arrow Bear quiver on my vintage Kodiak Magnum. I tighten the bolts as tightly as I think is wise.But the guiver kicks loose after three shots. I’m thinking although it looks great maybe this quiver is not really meant to be on this bow. Anbody else tried this set up?

      Don, try a little ptfe tape on the thread, should stop the bolts coming loose but still allow you to remove it without difficulty.

      Check out thunderhorn…they make a fine line of bowquivers. Big Jim also comes to mind…high quality, at a very reasonable price.

      Totally agree about thunderhorn. Their Boa quiver is A-1 and the personal attention I was given for my out of the ordinary request reminds me of the way folks treated customers 40-50 years ago.

      I’ve been using Eagle’s Flight Quivers for a while now with no complaints. They’re really well-made, reasonably priced, and very lightweight:

      Thanks Guys for all the excellent advice. Looks to me that in order to keep the fletching out of the arrow gripper I need to go with a wrap-around hood and a bracket type arrow gripper at the stabilizer insert. This means mixing up the quiver models but from the sounds of things all the suppliers are quite willing to work with a customer. Thanks again.

      EFA makes a stabilizer/insert adapter kit for their quivers. Very easy to convert, so you could keep the hood as a strap-on, for example, and convert the gripper to an insert attachment.

      I’d like to add to my suggestion of thunderhorn a little bit…they also make the Barta Quiver….8 arrow, holds 2 outside the hood for judo’s, or flu flu’d blunts…and they will even do custom 2 tone hoods if asked. Yet another idea for ya! I’m trying to get the extra funds up for one. The idea of a full “clip” strikes me as a good one 🙂

      Was looking at Ron Laclair’s sight. They have a new quiver called the EDGE, it is made by Eagles Flight. Looks pretty practical, especially with 3:1 ratio broadheads.

    • shirikahn

      I think that edge would be a great quiver for those that carry huge diameter broadheads, like tree sharks. I like the original woodsman, myself. that’s why I’ll either go with the big jim deluxe or the barta…probably the barta for the room for flu flu’s. (I like roving so that’s making me lean that way). But for the price, Big Jim’s quivers can’t be beat. And that man and his company are top notch!

      Thank you, it’s a good fix.

      Kanati x2,check out John’s site, lots of different models. I like the pro strap on, and you can angle them which way you like.

      Take a look at the Eagle’s Flight Archery quiver of your choice and order the Totem accessory, too. I have one on my Morrison Cheyenne. It’s 19″ from the clip to the hood as mounted. Plenty of clearance for your fletching.

      Go to the following link to see their offerings:
