      I was checking out the GFA Quiver the other day,seems lika good alternative to a bow mounted quiver. Anyone tried this quiver? Whats your opinion of it. Also, correct me if i’m wrong, but is this a bear quiver with the riser mounting arms removed? I have a bear quiver and it looks just like the GFA except with the riser mounting arms. just curious….

      I used the quiver last year. I’ll probably use it again this year. It does look like bear quiver.

      The only trouble I had was that I had to cut the arrow notches out a bit. They were too small for my gold tip arrows.

      It is a functional quiver. Not the prettiest thing around though… I’ve been looking at a leather quiver on the shrew website that works in the same way, but looks a little better. But as long as the GFA quiver holds up, I probably wont get it…

      I actually made my own version by taking an old bow quiver and sewing on a strap. Worked well most of the time except for had to use a safety pin to keep it from sliding around.

      I made a similar type quiver 11 years ago to use with a selfbow. It only took once or twice before I realized it wasn’t for me. Personally, I’d rather use a Plains-style quiver.

      I have never used a back quive,always a bow quiver,but I used some old staps just playing with the bear quiver and it just seems like it would be very hard to keep it out of the way or out of the brush when stalking. And being able to get the arrows in or out of this style quiver is awkward to say the least.

      I used one for a bit, but found that it was too awkward to use in conjuction with my fanny pack. Now that I have finally mastered file sharpening my broadheads, I will just stick with my back quiver instead.

      I have tried every concievable quiver, and have landed on the GFA ever since they came out. I have 2 of them, they are the perfect design, IMHO…..quality is superb. I use them with and without a backpack, or a possibles bag, and it works great. I adjust the strap length based on what I’m wearing or what I’m doing. Without reservation I can say it is my favorite quiver.

      A lot of guys want to build thier own, and thats fine, but Fred’s is better quality than I can produce, and I enjoy dealing with Fred. 😀

      I made one too, out of a Hunters Niche bow quiver that I did not like on my bow. Just cut a wood slat to size and mounted it with small bolts and added a chord. Works great.
