    A few years ago, I posted a thread about a PVC Backpack quiver I made.  It worked really well and so I thought I’d make one from leather as it would be a bit lighter.  I was gonna just add to that other thread, but when I tried to do a search, I got a “404 error”.  This happens every time I try to do a search. – Maybe our web mom knows why?

    Since I could not find the old thread, I thought I’d start a new one.  The leather for this quiver cost about $5.00.  It straps to the side of the backpack…  I got fancy with some braiding around the arrow opening and the top, but its not necessary.

    I hope those elk appreciate all this effort come the end of October when I head out to CO…  Dang I miss those good emoji’s we used to have on this forum.

    Here’s the quiver itself:

    Hi Steve. Good luck with the elk!

    Sorry this site is still hard to work with. It seems that the search doesn’t work for phrases, only single words, but I will do some digging to change that! When you search for a word, such as quiver, you will see comments from  threads that have the word quiver in them. If you look at the upper right corner of each box, it will tell you the thread it was in, and if you click that you see the whole thread. Yes, that is a really bad way to find something!

    The other solution I found may be easier. Since you know you wrote the post, you can go to your profile (by clicking your name, everyone can click on anyones name) and click “Topics Started”. Then you will see a list of all of them and (hopefully) find the one you are looking for.

    And now for emojis…

    Emojis seem to be an individual thing within your keyboard now. Phones and mobile devices generally have them built in; look for the little smilie face near the space bar when you’re typing.

    Here is a document that explains it for all devices; mobile and desktop/laptop computers. This probably isn’t the answer you were hoping for, but I am really having a hard time finding something that works on our site. I found that a quick keystroke combo gives me tons of choices on my Mac laptop. I think if you set this up on your computer, it can be a lot easier than you think, but it might be more difficult if you are using an older computer.

    Keep it “G” please. My grandson’s favorite emoji is the poop. 😊 😳

    Thanks for the search advice, I will remember it for next time.  As for emoji’s, the one’s on my computer pretty much suck.  And I am reluctant to download others as I have read a number of articles like this one:

    I guess you can hide malware code in the emoji.  There was a story about it on the news recently too.  It’s a way “in” to your ‘puter that the virus software folks haven’t been able to protect well.  No worries, I’ll just be more colorful in my verbiage.

      Here is a list of emojis/smileys that you can type in, however, the images I see using these keystrokes or words are a bit different from what is shown. Some can be inserted with either text or full text, and some can only be done with the full text option. I hope that makes sense. 😯

    Very nice quiver Steve. Good luck on your elk hunt. You’ll have to regale us on all the details when you get back.

    Good luck in CO, Steve.  I’d like some more info on how you crafted that leather quiver, especially using only $5 in leather (my leather shoelaces seem to cost more than that !).

    I got the leather from a friend in the business…  he had a piece marked $25.00 which I took home and cut my quiver from.  When I returned it, it was missing about a quarter of it’s area, so he charged me 5 bucks.  Looking on the tandy leather site, a similar quality piece might run $40.00, but you’d get more leather than you’d need to make a quiver.

    I didn’t write down dimensions or take pictures while making the quiver, so I don’t have much to share that way.  But if you have a question about it, I’d be happy to try and answer.
