Looking for lost arrows can be frustrating
Looking for lost arrows often starts when we either shoot without a proper back drop or we drive a field tip or broadhead through the grass, brush or trees. My favorite technique is to remove my shoes and ‘feel’ the shafts with my feet, but that does not work well with broadheads. Sometimes the old ‘ounce of prevention pound of cure axiom’ holds true when you are looking for lost arrows, and today we will talk on a couple heads whose design make looking for lost arrows much easier.
Eliminate looking for lost arrows
If you arrow never gets lost, you never have to look for it. When hunting big game losing arrows is part of the act, but when chasing small game you shouldn’t be spending much time looking for lost arrows. Small game like squirrels, rabbits and birds don’t require an expensive broadhead tipped shat to get the job done. Small game heads and bird points are much more efficient at harvesting these little critters, and they help make looking for lost arrows a thing of the past.
Design key to looking for lost arrows
All the tips I refer to have arms or appendages designed to grab grass and brush to stop the arrows progress. These arms keep the tips from
burrowing under grass and leaves and richocheting through the trees making looking for lost arrows impossible. Judo points, SGH from Montec and Snaro bird points all work on the ground, but if you plan on shooting into the air or trees, our Snaro bird points may be your best bet. The large diameter on a Snaro means they are slowed by leaves and twigs fast enough to recover arrows shot at squirrels and birds. This diameter can become a problem in super dense areas, but those are never an archery friendly spot to hunt small game with a bow anyhow.
Snaro bird points are worth checking into if you are tired of searching for and looking for lost arrows.
