Flu Flu arrows
Flu Flu arrows are a must have in my quiver. In fact I usually have 2. Take one or 2 of your existing shafts, strip the vanes or feathers, and add some 5 inch full cut feathers to turn
them into Flu Flu Arrows. I use 3 – 5 fletch for a recurve, and 4 to 6 on a compound for my flu flu’s.
Flu Flu arrows
A flu flu arrow is designed to travel about half the distance of your regular fletched arrow. They come out of the bow just as fast as your regular shafts, but a flu flu arrow loses it’s energy in a hurry. All that fletch grabs so much air it just dies in a hurry. This makes flu flu arrows the ideal choice for shooting both birds on the wing, and squirrels, coons or any other animals that are not on the ground. You may have an arrow hang up in the branches of a tree from time to time, but your odds of recovery are still much higher than with your regular hunting arrows. Because the flu flu arrow does not go as far, you are able to find them easily, and the quick flight pattern almost always has them standing straight up in the air, or lying nicely on the ground. Your flu flu arrows are much less likely to burrow under grass and leaves where you can not find them. If you like flinging arrows heading to and from the stand, a Snaro tipped flu flu will last you all season.
Snaro Flu Flu Arrows
There are 2 styles of flu flu arrow fletching. Traditional flu flu and spiral wrap. We use Trueflight spiral wrap feathers because they make a better hunting arrow for wing shooting. The sprial wrap flu flu’s hold their in initial energy longer than and traditional flu flu arrow, and they travel a shorter distance. Hard to believe but it is true. The spiral wrap feathers of our Snaro flu flu’s pack more punch at 25 yards, but die faster than regular flu flu arrows. They are the ultimate wing shooting flu flu arrow. Below is a video with Bob Link from the 2012 ATA show on how we make the Snarrows. The list of items you need is short, but will be making a dozen or so before it becomes more economical than just buying a 3 pack off our site. Check it out if you want to make your own.
Hunting with flu flu arrows
I have used flu flu arrows to successfully take many species of game, including rabbit, squirrel, grouse, pheasant, dove and ducks. Larger aerial game such as swans and geese, I
usually switch to a full length parabolic 3 fletch that fly somewhere in between my regular 2 inch feathers and my Snarrows. They hold energy a little furthers than my Snarrow flu flu’s, and sometimes you need that. There are not a lot of variables in wing shooting with a bow, sometimes it becomes a big game pursuit, and Snaro bird tips and flu flu arrows will not fit the bill. Don’t set yourself up for failure on these larger winged critters, and if you have any questions on your setup for the game you are chasing, drop me an email or jump on the Snaro facebook page and ask me there. I will gladly answer your questions on hunting with flu flu arrows or Snaro bird tips.
I strongly believe that a flu flu arrow or two belong in every quiver, but I may be geared a bit differnet than some. Take one or two of your existing shafts and turn them into flu flu arrows to shoot this summer as you practice. You may find yourself packing them into the woods this fall for the squirrels that always tempt, but seldom bring you to full draw.
