Took my 24 yr old stump shooting for the first time yesterday.  Had him use my 68 Grizzly and carry my older than the Hills back quiver with some judo equipped arrows.  He did quite well actually after a little coaching and had no problem with draw weight either, and I was quite surprised by how well the Grizzly slung an arrow.  

Now the problem or question I have is on the quiver itself.  I can not remember if I purchased the quiver when I bought the Grizzly or a year or two later.  It was a used quiver when I bought it.  Long story short I am still getting dye leaching out of the leather.  It was quite warm for Dec. yesterday and he wore a heavy flannel shirt that took a streak of dye from his back sweating as we moved back and forth up and down the hills etc.  I wore the quiver a bunch in the 70's and 80's especially at 3D shoots and can attest to the same problem.  It is still happening to this day.  So my question is how to get rid of the staining it is causing.  Any help is appreciated.  thanks

I've had the same problem with some quivers, but not all. I think it depends of the type of dye used by the tannery or which country the leather originated from and the tanning methods they used.

yep,  different latigo dye lots will bleed more than others, but usually all will bleed when in contact with sweat.  That's why I like Bridle or Harness leather.  No bleeding, even on hot summer days

Yep, I just can't believe the thing is as old as it is and it still leaches dye is all.  I hit it with some acetone and that cleaned some of it off where it goes across the back.  I also ordered a veg. tanned Hill style.  too.  thanks
