Yes it works. It has an odor that lingers though.

It works fine. Just spray your feathers ahead of time, as it takes a day to dry.

For those who have done this, how long does it actually give you? Coming into the wet season and hoping to do some hunting, I am curious if it would give me a full day in the wet stuff without all my feathers laying flat?

Thanks for the replies, I’m gonna give it a shot for Saturday. I’m sure it won’t last long, I’ll bring some baggies also. It usually takes me about ten minutes to lose them. The good news is that it’ll be wet for everyone so it shouldn’t make much difference. I think it was Bastrop last year where everyone was basically shooting bare shafts.

This is the reason I always have about 3 arrows with turkey feathers with me. Makes a big difference.

Your feathers will stay good for a while. If it is raining much, they will still lay down after a while. Good thing is, when they dry out, they will stand up again just fine.
