Not sure what to call this—a backquiver broadhead magazine or wallet maybe?  

I’ve seen individual leather sleeves made to buffer/protect individual broadheads riding in a back quiver that slip free when the arrow is drawn— so I just thought I’d make one that held 6 at once.  Not sure if it’s been done before, probably it has, but the purpose is simply to align all the blades so they don’t catch on one another when drawn or get rotated slightly and then hang up in the center where the quiver collapses in on itself against the shafts. Also, it keeps the broadheads from settling and competing for space with blunts/field points at the bottom of the quiver.

I've not hunted with this leather contraption yet, but will give it a try tomorrow. Backyard testing says it’s gtg, so time to use it afield I guess.  B429D4EA-F9C7-4167-800A-8BC959C60E28.jpeg  21E94CDB-1913-481A-80F3-01080DCC00BC.jpeg  916C17A7-7003-4488-8BD6-11654AF97E51.jpeg  DDDA1A3F-E8D3-402F-B567-FDC38AF8070E.jpeg  71A02FF8-5C0A-4737-A91C-3C799B1FDEB0.jpeg

I don't know about that arrow keeper thing, but those arrows look like bad medicine for the deer!

So if you pull an arrow out to put on your bow, then you walk around a while and decide to put it back in your quiver so you can take a pee, then what?  I guess one just rides free?  If it were me, the keeper would always be in the way of the arrow I tried to drop back in the quiver. 

The other scenario that would most assuredly play out is that I would sneak up on a big old deer and get off 5 oh-so-close shots without him even noticing (you have to be an expert bowhunter before you can try this, trust me).  He would still be standing there and then I would pull my last arrow (with absolute confidence in the outcome) from the quiver for my perfect shot, and there would be this thing hanging on the end of it...  Oh, now I get it.  The last and best excuse guaranteed to keep your buddies from cutting your shirt tails back at camp.😎

Hope it works for you.    Not for me, for reasons that Steve mentioned, but also,  I like all my arrows in a nice round cluster group in the bottom of the quiver. The feathers interlock and keep arrows from rattling or rotating heads against each other. That looks like the arrows would fan out. But hey  if it floats your boat.....            I'm reminded of what Schulz quoted Hill as saying when people asked him how he kept his broadheads sharp in his backquiver..."with a file, how do you keep yours sharp?"  😁

  1. Morning hunt went well, pretty snowy but deer were moving. Nice stalking conditions 👍. Afternoon could be good... Anyway, jury is still out but so far so good. Seems that the arrows stay put and then draw as intended.

Steve, there just ain’t no way that thing is coming out on an arrow. Gotta roll up my sleeve and use my coonpaw to fish it back out. So far when replacing one broadhead arrow, yeah it just rides free until needed again. Plenty of room  

Justin, it’s a Northern Mist back quiver of heavy Latigo. Have Mr Touray send you one with the next bow he does up for you. You’ll love it. 

Nate, not sure yet if this gains me buoyancy or not?  Perhaps maybe I’m not “loading” my quiver right?  This well could be a hardware solution to a software deficiency— Your points don’t shift or settle in the bottom over the course of the day?  I got some shag carpet in the bottom so keeping them sharp or quiet isn’t a big deal...any pointers are welcome tho.

Well after 3 full days of chasing deer, here’s some observations:

1. It worked about as intended.  My two blade broadheads stayed aligned and drew smoothly without any alignment hang ups. Moreso blunts which go in/out much more frequently didn’t compete with BHs for bottom-of-quiver real estate— this was what I was mainly after.

2. What didn’t work so well was when I drew the first broadhead (a Ribtek) the ribs of the ferrule sorta grab against another at first. No problem, just kinda rough and unexpected at first. (Smooth, more conventional ferrules wouldn’t have this issue.) After the first arrow was later returned to the quiver it just “rode along side” of the leather piece but generally retained its position at the top of the order and came out smoothly and aligned when drawn again. 

3. Also, after the first BH arrow was removed the remaining 5 lost the flat “fan” order with which they went in, and held, until the first BH was removed. This is to say later on they just settled naturally but still kept their draw-order. This might not have been the case if I’d only worn the quiver conventionally on my back (or not removed an arrow) but in the course of still hunting and stalking the back quiver gets rotated and tucked under my left arm quite a bit. Not to mention removed when layering up or down. As such the leather piece I’d made also settled/shifted just a bit into the space of the blunts by day Three.  If I’d had more than 4 blunts this may have caused a space issue, but it didn’t this trip.

So there it is so far, and on balance, I’ll keep using it until I find reason not to. Good luck everyone.

If you shoot at real deer as well as you shot at that foam deer in the vid  you posted, your real problem is deciding what veggies you are gonna cook with that back-strap.  jmo.

There are several products you can put in the bottom of a back quiver to keep the broadheads from getting dull.  I cut a piece of foam to fit the bottom about 1/2" thick. It is firm, and will not hold water.  A piece of soft rubber, outdoor carpet, floor mat, high density upholstery foam, etc will work. You may get scraps as upholstery shop.  I do not glue it, so can be replaced, or cleaned as fir and pine needles drop inside.

8F0A7A2A-5E2C-4541-90E9-35EA3774768C.jpeg  Steve, gosh I wish I could shoot real deer that easy too.  The past few days however were a challenge of first finding and then stalking all while praying for the wind to hold.  When found they were holed up in places like this:
