Great work! with the edge that is sewed together did you sew the two ends of the piece directly together or is there like a strip of leather down the middle that each side is stitched to? Thanks!

I wonder if the top section of that quiver would interfere with you drawing the arrow our smoothly. I can just imagine my hand having to feel around that to get to an arrow every time, and that would annoy me greatly.

Beautiful work, but quivers should be worn at the hip.

not always, it depends entirely on preference. For example, I am a traditional bowhunter, and I prefer a quiver that is in line with my spine so that the fletchings of the arrows come out behind my head. This is because I naturally compensate for my head when I am walking through trees so that I don't hit it on low limbs, and thus, I also naturally compensate for the arrows because they are in line with my head as well. People who perform speed-shooting (loosing as many arrows as possible in a short period of time while hitting a target) typically prefer an over-the-shoulder quiver because it allows them to draw the arrow and swing it straight down to the string in a position that is suitable for nocking the arrow. If you are just a regular guy and you want a hip quiver, that is also fine.  It is the most basic traditional way to wear it, particularly in America, where most of the early influence in archery came from native American Indians, who kept their quiver at their belts so that they could access their arrows while riding horses. Most of the time, a longbow user like myself prefers back quivers because the string comes down so low that it will often hit the arrows protruding from the hip quiver upon release if you are not consciously compensating for it.

Traditional bow hunters never wore back quivers.  In fact, raising your elbow will usually flag (alert) your mark.  I use a longbow, and hip quiver.  I find it strange that you'd want to swing your arm up above your head.

Anyway, thanks for the response.

I usually have an arrow nocked already. I understand the correlation however, but as I said, it is preference. It is easier to draw and immediately nock an arrow with maximum speed with a shoulder quiver because the downward motion of the arm can easily be transitioned into the motion required to bring the nock to the string. Historically, you are correct, hunters have always used hip quivers, and for most traditional archers, it remains so today. I merely said that today, the preference of the archer is usually the deciding factor, not the historical background. And actually, I believe that you do have a point, I just hate the hip quivers because when you run, or you are walking up a steep incline, the quiver makes repeated contact with your leg and that makes quite a lot of noise if you are like me and you hate having too many arrows in the quiver at once. I also dislike having to hold the quiver if I don't want the fletching to catch on every thorny bush I pass. (I live in Arizona, and I hunt in arid desert type terrain, so where I am... EVERYTHING has thorns, and those will rip the feathers of the fletching to shreds if you are not careful. This, I prefer to have the feathers tucked behind my head, where they are less likely to take damage and gather cockleburs as I walk. ^_^ It is very refreshing to find someone else besides myself who favors a longbow these days though. I hate the fact that the rise of compound bows has taken a lot of the art out of archery. >x<

Ah, again, thanks for a thoughtful response.  It's interesting to hear a fresh perspective, and I do see your point, especially with burrs in your region messing up the feathers.  Those are some fair arguments.  You almost have me curious to try it. ;p

Hooray for longbows~  Theoretically, I like the low force required of compounds and their ease of use (though I haven't tried one myself), but there is something in the art of using traditional longbows and simple recurve bows that will always keep my interest far greater than that of convenience.

I completely understand the feeling! I tried a compound bow for a little while, just to see what it felt like, but, even though I could probably walk around for hours with the thing at full draw, since I am so used to the stacking my longbow gives me, I just could not stand the sights sitting in front of me where I would expect the arrow to go... I shoot by instinct, and the sights literally threw me off so much that when I picked up my longbow again, I had to re-learn how to judge distances without the visual reference again.  (Actually a lot harder than it sounds, and for awhile I was thinking about giving up archery hunting altogether...)

If you value your reflexes, do not ever try a compound bow. I cannot stress that enough, because even now, I have to take a second or two longer to figure out where my arrow will end up, and I can tell you that it has cost me at least two big game hunts where I could have made it down the mountain with something.

Ouch.  Yes, I'd much rather use my instincts than a sights.  Thanks for the word of caution.  I hope you get your quickest groove back. ;|
