Stalker Quiver

This is a stalker quiver. It is a combination of a classic field quiver and a back quiver, which means it has the benefits of both styles. You can wear it on your side as well as on your back, but extracting arrows from them seems as comfortable as from a field quiver. The lambswool lining in the top collar and a foam pad in the base keep the arrows quiet in a stalking situation.

VLBB STALKING QUIVER

by Lawrie Conole

Back in mid 2020 I started talking to László about making me a new quiver. In the past I’ve used his excellent finger tabs, so I knew what kind of leatherwork quality he was capable of. At the time I was interested in one of his field rig setups, but as the conversation went on, it became clear that because I’m primarily a roving / stump shooting kind of archer, that wasn’t going to be a good fit. It was then he mentioned that he’d had in mind for some time a design for a stalking quiver. He suggested that he’d make one and I’d test it out, and give him some comments for any modifications it might need.
In October 2020 the prototype VLBB stalking quiver arrived in Australia after a brief journey from Hungary on the other side of the world. The next day I took it out for a test drive, and it has been my main field quiver ever since.
As with anything that comes from VLBB, it is beautifully made, with quality materials and tidy, strong stitching. Given that I’m known by some of my archery friends as ‘Captain Flatcap’ for my tendency to be wearing a flatcap almost year round … Laszlo had a stamp made and the quiver is personalised with my nickname!
For the kind of archery I mostly do, the stalking quiver and back quiver work best for extracting arrows while wrestling with the undergrowth and traversing over uneven ground. The VLBB stalking quiver has worked perfectly for me under these kinds of conditions. I usually have it low down by my side on the draw hand (right) side of my body, and sometimes around behind my back. I also shoot what is colloquially (but incorrectly) known as a horsebow, and various different length bows can get caught up in a quiver that is too far around behind the body. About half way between my side and my back works best, and I can retrieve arrows comfortably without having to look at what my draw hand is doing.
There’s lambswool lining in the top collar, and a foam pad in the base, so it’s easy to keep the arrows quiet in a stalking situation. As I generally use arrows with various kinds of small game heads on them which are wider than either field points or broadheads, the volume of the quiver at the base is designed for there to be enough room for me to fit a couple of dozen arrows in at a time.
The only modification that I have suggested after quite extensive field testing, is for the angle of the front opening to be relaxed a little, to make it easier to get arrows out in a wider range of positions.
Dealing with László is always a pleasure and the quality of his work is absolutely first rate.

i've been using the tab i ordered for about half a year now, and i gotta say it's amazing! It's still going strong, and i've won a whole bunch of competitions and even a couple championships using it. The tab fits perfectly in my hand, and it's thick enough so that my fingers wont hurt even after firing hundreds of arrows, and yet it's now flexible enough that i can get a good feel of the string. The leather was kinda hard to begin with, but after using it for a while it formed to fit my hand. You did a great job, and if this tab ever breaks, i'll probably be back for a new one.

Dear Sir I am representing Great Britain in the upcoming World 3D Championships in Canada shooting longbow (AFB). I had been having a few issues with my release, Pete Mann lent me one of your large 3 under tabs and I can honestly say it is the best tab I have ever used, much better than the Yost I have been using. Thank you for such a great product, I will be recommending your tabs to everyone and hopefully placing an order on my return. I am not sure of the face material, I assume it's cordovan but it was green in colour.

here is my feedback about the tab: It’s simply great! I love the colour combination and the smooth feel of it, so it’s a real pleasure to shoot with it. I’m quite sure that, not too far in the future, I’ll order another one or two tabs.
