Description: TECHNICAL FIELD

This invention relates in general to a arrow quivers, and, more particularly, to an arrow quiver having a built in stand

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The simple purpose of an arrow quiver is to carry and store arrows. Safety is enhanced by a quiver, too, as the arrows are neatly tucked away until ready for shooting. Carrying loose arrows can be hazardous for anyone, but especially forchildren. Quivers come in many shapes and materials. These handy arrow holders come in shoulder, hip and back models.

However, in modern times, arrows are carried or stored by differing products. The quivers as depicted in movies used to carry and store arrows are not as useful as in the past. Archery in its modern embodiments generally involves shooting attargets in archery ranges. Thus, there is a need for modern quivers which allow convenient storage of arrows at archery ranges or other stationary locations, for example, a hunter's blind.

The present invention meets this need

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It is an object of this invention to provide a quiver which includes a built in stand.

It is a further object of this invention to provide a quiver which provides attachment points for additional features.

Further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the following description proceeds and the features of novelty which characterize this invention will be pointed out with particularity in the claims annexed to and forminga part of this specification.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

The present invention may be more readily described by reference to the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a quiver of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is an perspective view of an alternate embodiment of the quiver;

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of the embodiment FIG. 2 in an closed form;

FIG. 4 is a close up perspective view of a bow rest used in the embodiment of FIG. 2;

FIG. 5 is a close up perspective view of a cap used in the embodiment of FIG. 2;

FIG. 6 is a perspective view of art alternate embodiment of the quiver of the present invention in an open stand form; and

FIG. 7 is a perspective view of the alternate embodiment of FIG. 6 is a closed form.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

A quiver 10 of the present invention, as seen in FIGS. 1-3, comprises a generally cylindrical body 12 which is open .Iadd.at .Iaddend.both its upper end 14 and lower end 16. At least one track 18 is provided mounted to the exterior of body 12.[.which.]. .Iadd.or is in the body, i.e., is located within the circumference of body 12 as illustrated in FIG. 1 by being integrally formed in or coupled into the body as a portion of the body. Track 18 .Iaddend.extends parallel to the axis of body20. In the preferred embodiment, open upper end 14 is provided with an upper cap 20 and lower end .[.16.]. .Iadd.15 .Iaddend.is provided with a lower cap 22.

As best seen in FIGS. 1 and 2, a tripod stand 24 having three legs 26 extends from lower end 16. When not in use, legs 26 are telescopically received into and stored within body 12 as shown in FIG. 3. To use, lower cap 22 is removed and tripodstand 24 manually pulled downward from body 12. In the most preferred embodiment, legs 26 are biased to a stand up position supporting quiver 12 vertically as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 with, for example, springs though other mechanisms are certainly withinthe scope of the invention.

With tripod stand 24 set up, body 12 is empty and once upper cap 20 is removed, arrows can be placed therein. An archer would simply place arrows within device 10 and draw out for shooting as needed.

Track 18 has one or more trucks 30 which are slidably received thereon. In the illustrated embodiment, trucks 30 are provided with pins 31 which are adapted to engage corresponding holes 33 to lock each truck 30 into a desired location on track18. Those skilled in the art will recognize that any other mechanisms besides pins and holes can be used to slide and hold trucks 30 as desired and the illustrated embodiment is for exemplary purposes only.

Trucks 30 can be used to provide attachment points for optional features of quiver 10. For example, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, two trucks 30 have a carrying strap 32 extending therebetween. A user can employ pins 31 to move trucks 30 upwardlyand downwardly along track 18 to provide optimal comfort when carrying quiver 10.

In another example shown in FIGS. 2, 3 and 4, truck 30 is provided with a bow rest 34 having two bow rest arms 36 which is rotatable mounted thereto. Bow rest 34 has a stored position seen in FIG. 3 wherein bow rest arms 36 extend around body12 and a use position seen in FIG. 2 with bow rest arms 36 extending laterally away from body 12. In this position, a bow can be mounted thereon when not in use.

In another alternate embodiment shown in FIG. 2, a generally U-shaped gun rest 38 is mounted to upper cap 20. A user can employ gun rest 38 for sighting and steadying firearms for use. Alternatively, as shown in FIG. 5, cap 20 employs a cameramount 40 allowing a user to use quiver 10 as a camera tripod. When either camera mount 40 or gun rest 38 are not in use, cap 20 can be inverted to store same within body 20.

As best seen in FIGS. 6 and 7, an exterior tripod stand 60 having three legs 62 extends from lower end 16. When not in use, each leg 62 is folded upwardly and outwardly about a pivot 64 to closely abut body 12 as shown in FIG. 7. To use, eachleg 62 is folded downwardly and outwardly to the position illustrated in FIG. 6.

Although only certain embodiments have been illustrated and described, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various changes and modifications may be made therein without departing from the spirit of the invention or from thescope of the appended claims.
