finding that lost target arrow

Postby Foxxtrot » Fri Oct 03, 2008 7:22 pm

seems that I was a bit off yesterday. I followed the arrow flight and thought I was walking right over it. Nothing. Went back out this morning and raked away the leaves and retraced my steps three times. Nothing. Damn thing flew into another dimension or something. Any tips on finding arrows???

:welcome: to DHC. Best I can say is good luck. I have lost more than my fair share back when I shot alot. Sometimes they will skip off way farther than you imagined.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

I might buy a cheap metal detactor. I was practicing w/cedar, so I will be looking for a small chunk of metal in a fifteen x ten section of yard. This is a great site, glad I found it.

custom cedars aren't cheap. I may start making my own over winter. Not that I don't have flies to tie as well, but I have a big desk with some space for another hobby and I don't ski. Screw that dangerous sport. Buddy blew his knee out and not he doesn't hunt the blue lines.

Arrows can skip and fly a Loooonngg ways, just think if it skipped and went up on the air it could have went another fifty yard back. What color flecthin are you useing? Just have to start makein crop circles like you would for a deer if you lost blood. Good luck.
