Bow mounted side quiver
« on: September 25, 2021, 07:27:25 pm »
Iíve been wanting to order a new side mounted quiver but canít get one in on time for deer season 1st October is closing in fast.  My go to quiver busted so I needed to make my own.  This is a copy of sorts of the quiver I wanted to order.  It will work for deer season.  I used bamboo strip that I steam bent to the shape I wanted.  I repurposed an old quickie quiver that I bolted and glued to each end to.  I wrapped the hood with some old brown couch leather I scavenged.  The mounting hardware I repurposed from my old one that broke.  I was able to salvage the straps and rubber side saddles.  Everything else I had to remake.  Let me know what you think. 


Cheers

Dave

Just keep that one for good. Looks "store bought." Nice work.

After looking at that one, I would also be happy with it. No need to buy another one. Job well done.

Thanks fellas.  Iím pretty happy with it too.  I took my time with this build as the one I wanted (creek walker bell quiver) I liked the look of so I copied as best I could on my own.   In my opinion it looked worth the $165 that creek walker was asking.  I would have gladly paid this but they advised were a couple weeks behind on orders.  Darn. The steam bending the strip of bamboo was a challenge to get right.  If I was to do it again I was do up a glue up instead with laminate of thin strips like a plywood of sorts formed with the s curve.   The bamboo worked in the end and heat tempered it after steam bending to hold its strength.  Itís nice and lite weight too.  I made this to fit my bamboo bows if I ever wanted it mounted for a hunt.  A little unorthodox I know for bamboo bows. ;).  Canít wait to us I this season!   

Cheers.

Well done :) It looks good from here - much better feeling than wasting 165 bucks :) Especially because most 'store bought' stuff can easily be improved on. $165 sounds like an awful lot of money for a bow quiver....

Thanks guys!

 Simson,  I really like that trade point version of yours.  That real primitive look.  Iím gonna have to steal that idea and make one.   Love that stacked leather idea! 


Hereís a pic of my bending jig for the bamboo.

Looks like it will work - what we used to call a "jerryrig" or a "Rube Goldberg"!  If it works for you it is good to go!  Nice job!

I've made a couple versions of a bow quiver. I've hunted with a quiver on my bow as long as I can remember, but shooting self bows I really like the feel of a bare bow. I took the quiver off my bow and decided to try a side quiver this year. We'll see how that goes. I might love it and I might have the bow quiver back on for day 2.
