Survival Skills: How to Make Your Own Quiver - 0
by Tim MacWelch
There are a lot of options when it comes to transporting arrows, but few are in keeping with primitive archery like making your own quiver. If you read our posts on quick survival bows and making your own arrows, then this will help you to round out your traditional archery tackle.
Wrap it tightly with cord and let it dry for a week or two. Once it’s dry, glue, nail, or stitch some kind of bottom to the bark tube. This is one of the easiest quivers that can be made from materials that are literally everywhere. Try the bark from tulip poplar, paw paw, basswood, aspen, or any other tree that was traditionally peeled for bark containers in your area.
Hollow Branch Quivers
One of the best things about homemade quivers is their appearance. Nothing is more camouflaged against the forest background like a piece of bark from that forest. And it doesn’t hurt that it smells right too. I hope you all are practicing for a safe and enjoyable archery season. Good luck on your hunts this fall.
