Coyote Quiver
« on: October 25, 2016, 11:53:02 AM »
Made this quiver from a coyote pelt -n- the strap is from scrap from an old pair of leather pants. I'v tromped through the woods with it now for the last month. It has held up nicely in rain and sunny weather.

looks good, I picked up a coyote pelt this past fall, and I was thinking of making quiver out of it also.

I turned the hide inside out (fur in).  lined up the edges in the shape I wanted then sewed it with artificial sinew. Started at the tail / butt end. sewing up the belly. Just past the front legs ( or where needed to have room to turn back to right side out) after turning fur side out I cut a hole in the heck area sewing the edge of the circle.(this was done so the head hung down.) sewed head in place but only enough to cover -n- close where stopped sewing up belly. Lastly I sewed a strap made from scrap leather to it. ...I didn't use a plan just kinda winged it -n- ran with an idea I had....Good luck

Pelt quivers done right are gorgeous and work well if you can stiffen them and get
the strap angle comfortable.  I have seen some made with a thin rawhide liner
that holds shape nicely.  That said - these are not the best to take out in the rain.

Agree that getting the strap right helps... had to redo the strap a couple times to find the "sweet spot". I used this quiver all of this season in all types of weather, It held up nicely though had to dry it after more than a few hunts before putting arrows back in it. Very quiet when stalking through the brush -n- never dumped the arrows when bending -n- such.
