    Default How do you waterproof fletchings?

    I'm shooting Rayzr feathers and the forcast has showers in it for our shoot this weekend. So my question is, how do I waterproof these feathers?

    Get yourself some Bohning or Gateway feather dry powder.

    Walmart has a spray for waterproof of tents, this is cheaper and seems to work very well for feathers.

    The other is a spray for WB rests for making the fibers of the rest waterproof it says on the can for feathers as well as the rest...

    Also I carry a plastic bag to cover my feather fletchs in the quiver on a rain day. I keep shooting the same arrow till the feathers look like a wet cat...

    get blazers or vanes. back when i was shooting feathers I tried all different things to water proofing my feathers but it didnt work. the best luck ive ever had with is practicing with my feather wet and seeing were my groups were.
