    I am trying to decide on what kind of homemade back quiver to make. Thinking leather, but am also interested in ones made from other natural materials such as reeds, cattail, bark, etc.

    If you have made your own, I would appreciate seeing pictures of it.

    Thanks
    Greebe

    I don't have a picture because it wasn't mine, but one of the coolest ones I've seen was made from an otter. Their natural cylindrical bodies are almost preformed for the task. Head at the bottom and the tail was used as part of the strap.

    I made one using the pant leg from an old pair of jeans and some 2" webbing. Been looking for it then realized it is snowed in at the camp. It came out nice with very little sewing.

    I made this when I was a kid- thought it lost to time when my Dad found it a month or so back and sent it to me. It sucked up almost 1/2 a tin of neatsfoot oil over the span of about 10 days however, I am happy to report that it ca,e back to life and has been in service a dozen times since its return to me.
    PS- the cross on the flap was an earring from a girl back in the day.

    Super easy back quiver. Made with a pant leg and 2" webbing. Not any good for BH's but great to use while stumping or target shooting.

    Thanks guys. I have seen some people use an old sleeve from a welding jacket as well. I was thinking of making one out of birch bark, but got carried away on my last birch tree and cut it all up into firewood lengths before pealing the bark. Gerr..

    Here is a post in this forum I just found on making a bark quiver.

    here's mine with a haversack attached-got the idea/pattern from @sidmand . made it from an old busted carhart jacket and added the ties for my bow (although I honestly took that from aragorn in the Lord of the rings movies) I also put the game hangers on plus pockets inside-one for an altoids tin of archery fixins and one for my sling bow attachment. it's nice to have all my archery needs in one convent to grab package!
