It the idea of a quiver to carry arrows is at least 5000 years old. In 1991, the body of a 45 year old man was discovered on the present-day border between Italy and Austria and dated to be from 3,300 BC. He was dressed in a leather clothe, a waterproof cloak made of grasses and carried a framed backpack, a utility belt with tools, a quiver of 14 arrows, a knife made from flint and a copper axe. His wooden arrows had flint arrowheads and the quiver included a flap to keep the feathers dry. He carried arrows of two lengths during his travels. I personally carry my arrows with a quiver attached to my bow. I normally carry 4 broadhead tipped arrows and a single practice arrow/small game with a judo tip. When sitting in a tree-stand or hide, I always remove the quiver and set it nearby. This allows me more mobility with less eye catching movement. When stalking game I leave the quiver attached. I practice both with the quiver attached and unattached. With practice I noticed no difference in my accuracy. Others have told me they can only shoot well one way or the other. How many arrows do you carry on a typical all day African hunt? What kind of quiver do you use? (I use an Alpine 5 arrow soft loc type) If using a bow quiver, do you shoot with it attached or removed from your bow? Do you carry a practice/small game arrow and do you ever shoot it while hunting? How many arrows and broadheads do you bring on a Safari?
