Made this back quiver for Archery Hall of Fame Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I finished this back quiver last night. It's a donation that will be auctioned off in a couple of weeks at The Archery Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Springfield, MO. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. All the black leather is american bison and all the gold leather is deer except for the arrowhead which is bison too. The reddish-brown leather outlining the emblem and arrowhead is leather from an elephant's ear. It is also on the straps. The reddish-brown bands at the top and bottom of the quiver are carp hide. I carved the strap buttons out of antler material I took off a buck I killed with my longbow. Every needle hole was punched by hand and every stitch was sewn by hand using artificial sinew. Hopefully, it will make a little money for the museum.

No, it's any form of archery. Most of the present inductees are target shooters from the heyday of the 50's and 60's. There are also some well-known bowhunters and archery manufacturers like Fred Bear, Glen St. Charles, Gail Martin, and Bob Lee.

Thank you all for the kind words! I talked to the auctioneer yesterday and he said he's already thinking of a starting number for this quiver and it isn't going to be cheap. We'll see. Ted Nugent and his wife are supposed to be at this shindig. Maybe he'll open his wallet a little and take this quiver home.
