Quiver Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I know that don't post much but let me tell you a lurk quite a lot.

Okay, I have a question regarding quivers, I am getting a flat bow in a few months when I can afford one and am looking at quivers.

My question is, what are the good and bad of back quivers verses side quivers. I lean towards the back quiver but don't want to get one if it will not work or will be a pain. This is the quiver I am thinking of http://rasherquivers.com/ranger-quiver/

One reason I do not want a side quiver is that I am female and I am not sure how a side quiver will work with the female anatomy. But I am pritty new and do not know a lot so please help!!!

Thank you all in advanced

Hi there. The back quiver looks cooler, but can be a pain. Unless you plan to play Robin Hood the side quiver is better. If you have long hair it could get caught up in the fletchings and when you go to pull an arrow... well, pain. It is also harder than it looks to draw from a back quiver. Your "anatomy" shouldn't be a problem with the side quiver, you can play with it to get it in the right position. You could always go to a sport or hunting store and try out the different setups to see which you prefer.

I have to echo kiltedmoon. I used to run a back quiver and I did like it but it had it's cons for sure. Bending way to down to get an arrow off the ground could be problematic and can dump your arrows out over your head. But I see a lot of people using them at the shoots I go to. I use a little nylon side quiver with a length of tube set into it to stiffen it a bit. The tube came from the golf dept in a sporting good store. Dick's, I think. They go in your golf bag for your clubs I'd guess.

Other options to look into are a pocket quiver or a bow quiver (if it fits your bow). The pocket quiver looks something like this: http://www.3riversar...duct.asp?i=3251 My friend Deb uses one and she seems to like it a lot. I hope you find one you love!

I shoot both competition & hunting & will agree that the side quiver will be the better option.

The Pocket Quiver that Spc. Scott posted is also a great option.

Thank you so much, I really wanted a honest answer and you all gave me one, so I will start looking for a good side quiver! I was wondering if the back quiver was going to work so you gave me the ability to make a informed choice.

And when I finally get my bow I will post pics, it should be a beauty! It will be custom made to my size and draw length.
