I made a Hill style quiver and can't seem to make it work like I see others do. My thoughts are that I may have attached the bottom of the strap in the wrong place. Its very difficult to draw an arrow. Basically I can't reach it. If its not too much trouble I would love to see the backs of others quivers to get a better idea of where I should attach my strap.

A good starting point.  You may have to adjust it to suit your liking but this is most common placement from Craig's Howard Hill quivers. You will need to "bump up" the bottom of the quiver with your bow hand to make drawing the arrow  easier.  Takes practice.

The "Boost" is second nature to those shooting with a Hill style quiver. You have to watch closely to see it with most guys. As explained above just reach back with your bow hand and shove the quiver up where you can get to the arrows.

There are many variations of strap placement.  For a HH back quiver the top strap should be attached to the top center and the bottom (if you're right handed) on the  lower right side as you're looking at the back.  I do not like the long thong attachment.  I lace my strap to the quiver body.  Frank

Where you attach the top of the strap is a personal thing for some of us. The last few quivers I made I filled the quiver with arrows attached the bottom of the strap but used a spring clamp to attach the top of strap. Then I simulate drawing arrows from it while it’s on my back.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to respond with suggestions and pics. Here is the one I made, the top of the strap is centered and as you can see the bottom is off to the right. No matter How I fiddle with things there is no way I can retrieve an arrow off my shoulder like I see others do, If I have the quiver positioned so the arrow is to right of the side of me ear, no problem. But I'm not comfortable drawing a broadhead past my ear and the back of my head. I'm rather fond of my ears and noggin.

I had the same question recently. Here’s where I ended up. I left myself the ability to adjust based on the clothes I may happen to be wearing.

I bought a quiver years ago that had the strap dead center top and bottom.  It has worked the best for me of any I have had.

Here is how Nate does his.  Even hangs from my peg at the correct angle:

Here’s an old Hill from the 60’s. It looks like it’s positioned similar to Two4’s

Good Morning! All

It seems most of the quivers shown here have the top and bottom of the strap located real close to the side. I've decided to put the quiver I made aside for now and have ordered a Howard Hill quiver to see if that will help with how it hangs off my shoulder. Always wanted one so it was easy to rationalize getting it. Plus it will be easy to sneak into house.  It's kinda tricky getting those longbows through the front door.

Thank you guys for those pics. After looking at them I changed the straps on mine and can finally draw and replace arrows from it...and get some use from it.

Take a close look of this picture of Nate’s quivers!

There is a definite difference between his and most of the others pictured.
