    i definitely wouldn't pay for them. He cut them at his store.

So when I drew back after the cutting my arrows (and I hope I am saying this right) will just hit the rest with the insert tip if I pull just into the vally of the draw. If I pull "hard into the wall" they will ride over and either the very head will sit on the rest or just fall through. Is this as bad as I think? Should I just be carefull and shoot them this way, or should I have him recut them?
    OK, wow, I just have to ask, if you had your arrows cut soooo short that they are already falling off the rest, then what else are you going to have them re-cut??? Just currious.. But in my opinion you really need new arrows.. You might be able to salvage whats left of the arrows you were shooting and make a nice stablizer out of them.. Or maybe you could donate your arrows to someone that has a really short draw, like a kid or something.. 4-H is always looking for arrows..

    Good luck with that

    works good for tree rat bait, set it out they will come up and check it out, when they find out what it is, they take a few seconds and look around trying to find the smart a$$ who put it their, this is a great time to shoot them!!!

    If you let them eat it, you have to shoot quick or they will die on their own and you will only get a 1/2 a kill.
