Where did you get those shafts at? I got a bag full of turkey feathers saved. I’ll get around to it one day.
Don’t know if I am permitted to tell the site publicly, may be viewed as advertising, even though I just found it myself, but I sent you a PM.

Well after mowing, handling the Devil (weedeater), and cooling off, I was able to do a few more. A tip I missed, after beginning cut to feather, grip base and pull feather as blade splits. Easier than cutting through feather into wood pulling knife. You will mess a few up, destroy some, but gets better with time. I probably lost five or more this evening. A little more challenging than Turkey I think.
It gets messy after a while...
Just part of it, I’m getting there...
I really enjoy watching your craftsmanship on this stuff. Very inspiring.
Thanks. I enjoy making my own hunting stuff. It is rewarding to take an animal with something you made yourself. But money issues sure inspires sometimes also! Lol
I hope to one day get into traditional archery. Right now, i know i do not have the time to put towards it.
I've heard it said, carbon comes from the ground (truth). How much more natural/trad can you get lol
You may be right Meatstick, I don’t have a clue, I shoot mostly carbon myself. Just wanted something to play with. I actually paid more for these Bamboo shafts than I did my last three dozen carbon shafts. I almost always wait for clearance sales, bought last three dozen for $40.00 per dozen.
Yessir I understand the draw to them. I played with cedars for a long time myself. I loved them until I tried to weight match them on a grain scale, then OCD got the best of me and I give up lol. They still always shot better than I do, regardless.
There are many creative ways to put points on cane arrows. If you are full stock trad then just glue them on, I do that some, two in middle are. But I have a bucket like most trad hunters that is full of broken, bent, or unused arrows. So I cut the end off a few bent ones and glued a section on some cane, now I have cane with screw in points. Or use the glue on, screw in, like I tried out also.
The strange one on the right has a shell casing on outside for strength and a small diameter aluminum insert inside. I try lots of things!
Remember those Goose feathers I was working on earlier in this post?...
And yes I have made many self nocks, just doing a quickie build on a few here, I can still do them later if I want. Before I fletched them I took them outside and bare shaft shot them. Most too weak so I shortened, went to lighter bow, and reduced point weight, not all at once of course. Lol. Always try to get spine, tip weight, and length right before fletching.
