Rambling Review – Thunderhorn Boa Quiver
Every archer needs an efficient and quiet way to carry their arrows into the field. Most compound archers carry their arrows in a side quiver, but traditional archery shooters are a quirky bunch who tinker with back quivers, belt quivers, and a variety of quivers that attach to their bows. In my opinion one of the premier options for carrying arrows is the Thunderhorn Boa Quiver.
Made in the USA – All of the Thunderhorn products, including the Boa quiver, are made in the Montana.
Adaptable – The Thunderhorn Boa Quiver uses quick strap attachments and can attach to most any traditional bow wether recurve or long bow. The “quick mount” constrictor straps allow the quiver to be attached to the bow even while it is strung up. The straps are secure and the quiver does not move.
Customizable color – The folks at Thunderhorn can match the quiver colors to the wood colors that any particular bow is made of. The hood can be one solid color, or it can be ordered in contrasting colors, as is pictured.
The Thunderhorn Boa Quiver comes as a two pieces both equipped with “quick mounts.” The top hood portion holds the broadheads or field points, while the bottom piece has small grips that hold the shaft of the arrows. When my Boa quiver first showed up in the mail, I was warned by my hunting buddy to strategically fit my broadheads into the foam hood insert. With those points carefully placed into the hood of the quiver, six arrows easily fit into the grippers on the bottom section of the quiver and did not rattle on each other when the bow is shot.
The Thunderhorn Boa Quiver has been strapped to my Fox Breed Recurve on all my hunts for the past six years or so. It has seen many miles full of rain, snow, and sun. The leather stands up well to the elements and serves to protect the arrows. On spot and stalk hunts where I move from location to location, the quiver stays on my bow at all times. The bow shoots very quiet even with a full quiver. I actually believe that the bow shoots smoother with the quiver attached. The extra weight seems to balance out the bow, absorb more handshock, and ultimately makes the bow a bit quieter. I know many traditional archers disagree on bow quivers, but I prefer the extra weight on the bow.
When in a treestand or blind, I do prefer taking the quiver off to cut down on movement in the tree. If the quiver has arrows in it, it will stay together as one unit (even though the quiver is two pieces), and it reattaches very easily.
Thunderhorn Manufacturing does sell replacement foam if needed. I also asked Duane about care of the leather on the hood of the quiver and he recommended that an occasional application of a silicone oil or “Nik wax” (used on shoes) can extend the life of the leather. He warned NOT to use heavy shoe grease though.

Beautiful leather workmanship
Quick mount attachments

Price (well worth it in my opinion)
Prognosis: I highly recommend checking out the Thunderhorn Boa Quiver as a great option for carrying hunting arrows into the field.
