Hollywood Invented the Back Quiver Myth?

Forget movie myths and legends, if you thought these were true you really need to see this viral video! (video)

Basically with this video he debunks several Hollywood myths about archery.

For example in most movies ( including, “The Hunger Games”) You see the actor/actress wearing a back quiver of arrows on their back when they fire the bow even though you can’t fire a bow with an arrow holder like this on your back. They would also either have to remove it or remove the arrows before they could shoot an arrow.

You might also notice that in many movies, the actor uses the bow left handed but then the arrow quiver is on the right side of their body, in actuality you have to stand at a 90 degree angle from the target and spin completely to the other side of your body with your back to the target in which you are firing the arrows to the other side.

Even though you can’t fire a bow with an arrow holder like this on your back, producers have to keep it this way for movies because it looks more dramatic and makes it easier for the audience to follow.
