I enjoy building my own. Donít have any pics on my phone. It does sting a little more when I lose one though.

Look great

Can't remember ever seeing a H hunt earlier than Nov so should be interesting to follow.

Good luck

I like that vane setup. Hows the 4 fletch shoot for you? Lose any speed going that route with the 2deg offset on them? Always wanted to try 4 fletch, just cause.

You may want to validate your day count, should be @51 days?

For most of my personal hunting I have shot the same white Texas flag wrap and 2-3 white vanes. Have shot the same for 10 years or so and have left them all over the world. I see white pretty well and I like looking at blood on a white wrap. I have shot solid fluorescent colors before and liked them. Seemed like my glue adhesion wasnít as good on some of the bright yellow wraps I had. Probably just the wrap! If you want to find the arrow I really think bright blue and pink are great. Those two colors just donít seem to disappear in nature.

I have been shooting 4 fletch arrows for hunting, 3D, and indoor for quite a few years. 4 Fletch take a little more time to fletch, cost a little more to fletch, but do they fly better than a 3 fletch? No not really..... but hey... they dang sure look cool and that is important too.
