I decided to join the cool crowd and build myself a back quiver.  Unfortunately, my right arm and shoulder will not work with it.  

So, for sale here, $75 plus actual shipping cost.  

A bit over 21" deep.  Formed bottom.  Multiple adjustment holes on the top.  1.5" strap. Additional removable layer of leather in the bottom.  Divider at the top.  

Questions welcome.

Nice quiver Mike. The guy who adapted a backquiver for his bad right shoiulder was actor Basil Rathbone.  Pretty slick.

Looks like around  or under his bow arm.  He was a Champion fencer also.   

 Basil Rathbone was twice the British Army Fencing Champ, a skill that would serve him well in movies and allow him to even teach actors Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power the finer art of swordsmanship.

Would like to see a video of how he drew the arrow.

You 'll have to experiment with strap length and to set the quiver to lay across your back more toward your arm pit than your shoulder blade.  The slick side of the strap will slide easier also.  The last picture looks like he "draws" the arrow from under his bow arm.   Much like drawing a sword.   ÃƒÂ°Ã…¸ËœÅ½

Deno, see what you mean about how he would have drawn the arrow.   I have plenty of adjustment holes but am at the full extent of the length.  The only adjustment i built in on this is the length of the laces.  Think I'll put a whole new strap on in two pieces with a Conway buckle for adjustment. 

Thanks for these suggestions.   I'll update the results.

Deno, that pic is wierd.. it appears...that his arm is on the other side of the quiver. As in, he drew up and over it, then dropped down.  I wonder if he ever has string contact with those arrows ?

The first picture shows plenty of clearance. I see in the last picture that shows his arm over the quiver. Could be a publicity shot more than his actual shooting form.   His bow is not canted either.  He hunted with Howard so I'm sure it wasn't a problem.

That would be doable, but I already use a side quiver for hunting.  The back quiver was for fun but since I rarely hunt without a day pack on, this type of side quiver is what I have been making and using for a few years now.

I went ahead and changed the strap to longer and with a conway buckle for adjustment.  I was better but still not something that my right arm and shoulder want to flex to.  My grandson just came over to borrow a bow fishing reel and I gav e it to him.  Problem solved.

I dunno guys... I’ve been playing with a duo shooter ASL recently. Lefty is still extremely wonky and I’m easily overbowed on that side too... but here’s what I’m getting at:  my backquiver is still right handed. So even when I swap over to shooting lefty, I simply pass the bow to my left hand, draw and nock the arrow as I normally would with my right hand/arm. I just nock it on the right side shelf and then pass the bow with arrow back into my right hand ready to be drawn with my left. It’s a pretty natural, quick and fluid motion really—certainly more awkward to describe than to do.

Not sure if Basil managed it this way or not, but it sure works for me. Now if I could only get everything else to work....
