Hunting quiver
« on: February 13, 2018, 06:05:52 pm »
I have been wanting to make a quiver for hunting and target shooting. I finally built it. It holds up to 8 arrows easily and is easy to remove arrows from with field points or broadheads. Material list is: expandable art tube from Michael's  $14.00, can of headliner glue $11.00, 2 leather belts from thrift store $1.00. All the camo material and inside material I already had. Free!! I was able to build it for a total of $26.00 . Hope you like it. forgot to add that I have 1 1/2 inches of foam in the bottom and glued the two cylinders together with 2 part epoxy glue then finished and smoothed off with hot melt glue ( items I already had on hand also).

Like those behind the back quivers!  Be sure to line the upper part with fur to silence/support the fletching and protect the base with foam for plastic bags(replaceable)!  Rain flap may be good, too

Hawkdancer, I already have 1 1/2 inches of foam in the bottom (forgot to include in list of materials) I will  need to put fur where the fletchings will ride. Thanks for pointing that out. I also used two part epoxy to seal the two pieces together so they will not slide then finished the joint with hot melt glue and smoothed the transition, Thinking about changing strap out to a leather one which I can make a pocket to install a small knife for gutting and skinning. I may add a rain flap and drill a small hole in the bottom edge for water to drain if I do get water into it. Thanks for the extra insights.
