It takes a lot of time to be able to grab, pull and shoot multiple arrows quickly. However, only with practice, you will be eventually able to draw arrows quickly from the quiver. When you place your arrows in the quiver, they need to be secured. Your arrows should not move around at all whatsoever. It would be best if you had your arrows secure so that you could grab them in the same exact way every single time. For shooting arrows, you should simply grab the arrow, pull it on and then shoot it. Follow these guidelines to learn how to draw an arrow quickly from the quiver.

Grab arrow from the quiver

It is a long step-by-step process on how to draw an arrow from a quiver. For this, ensure that you grab an arrow from the quiver in the same exact way every single time. It is essential that your arrow should go in your hands in the same exact way.  While learning, you should grab a single arrow every 5 seconds and then work your way down. Take your time. Pull the arrow out, put it on, put it back, and repeat this process to get it correctly. However, when you put the arrow on at first, you should be nice and slow. Then you should gradually speed it up. There is no need to grab more than 2,3 arrows at the same time. It is preferred to have 1-3 arrows maximum in the draw hand.

Hold the arrow

For shooting the arrow, it is essential that you place your fingers correctly on the arrow. While shooting, hold the arrow out, grab the outside feather, and gently place your thumb on the feather. The thumb should be placed at the side of the knock-in line with the feather. The thumb should be placed on the feather so that there should be an opening, and the opening should not touch your skin at all whatsoever, and you just hold it in the place. Furthermore, you can use your thumb or other fingers to shoot the arrow. While holding the arrow, it is essential that your thumb should feel the underneath side of the feather. You should feel this part every time you grab the arrow from the quiver.

Slide and shoot

For shooting the arrow, slide it gently on the string. There is a space where only the string will go.  While shooting, keep the odd feather out, and the odd feather should run with the knockdown on the side of the knock. The space between the two feathers creates a little pocket for the arrow. You should grab it perfectly so that it’ll slide right on. Hold and pinch the arrow a little bit and pull it back using your thumb or going directly back. Only with practice, you will be able to learn how to draw an arrow quickly from the quiver.
