Every archer needs a quicer to hold his or her arrows while on the move. It should be something that is large enough to carry the number of arrows that you will immediately need, it should give you easy access to the next arrow and it should be able to be carried comfortably. Your quiver should also not hamper your movement as you cover rough terrain.
There are many different typs of quivers from leather quivers to plastic quivers or the more insubstatial web quivers. They can also be worn on the hip or on the back depending on what makes you more comfortable. Some hunters prefer the option of attaching the quiver to the bow and these versions are becoming increasingly well designed to provide an option that is both lightweight and quiet.

Types of Quivers
Let’s discuss a few of the different types of quivers that are available and the pros and cons that may be associated with them. Traditional quivers comprise back quivers and side quivers while the more recent additions has been the range of bow quivers that have been added to the market.
The most traditional type of quiver is the back quiver that is slung across one shoulder. The most common image that many people will have of an archer is the act of reaching over the shoulder and producing an arrow that is loaded and fired in one fluid motion. A back quiver is actually quite a practical way of carrying your arrows. The quiver itself is usually quite sturdy, it is located in a position that is convenient yet out of the way and won’t intrude on your movement.
One of the possible problems that people might have with the back quiver is the process of getting used to wearing it. If you have not used one before it may take some time to get it properly adjusted so that it sits comfortably on the back. Of course, this should only be a problem for the initial period of use as you become more accustomed to it as a new piece of equipment. There may also be a problem with the quiver snagging on undergrowth if you are going to be moving through particularly dense growth.
Side quivers have become a little more popular over the years because they give you an additional carrying option when you are loaded down with backpacks and other items that may be stowed on your back. The side quiver is easy to access and it may have a strap that is slung over the shoulder or as a loose belt around your waist.
Some may prefer not to have their quiver at their side because they may become annoyed at the quiver slapping them on the leg as they walk. This is a small complaint that some people have but it is sometimes the little things that will ruin an outing.
Possibly the most popular type of quiver in use by hunters these days is the bow quiver. These are lightweight pieces of equipment that may be mounted to the frame of the bow. They take up little room and won’t add a great deal of weight to the bow. Most importantly the arrows are easily accessed when required for a shot. For the most part there are far more reports of people using a bow mounted quiver without any problems at all than those who have found them to be troublesome.
The disadvantages of using a bow quiver relate to the fact that it is adding weight to the bow. Some bows don’t perform as well with the addition of a quiver while others remain unchanged. In some cases there may be noise issues with the bow mounted quiver, particularly if it not correctly mounted. Issues have been noted with moving through thick undergrowth with the possibility that the quiver could snag the bow because of the extra clearance requirements.
It should be noted that the disadvantages that have been listed here had to be dug out of a far longer list of accolades for the bow mounted quiver.
You can find a quiver that will fit your body frame no matter how big or small you are. A hunting quiver will naturally look far different to a target quiver with one having to meet the needs of the archer on the move as opposed to one who is stationary.
