Default Trackable Arrow Survey

Hello I am in a High School Engineering class this year and am trying to develope an arrow that is able to be tracked while hunting. Before I begin the designing process for this project I must have 300 plus surveys completed. If you could help me in reaching this goal by completing the survey below that would be great. Thanks, Arrow Hunter.

Well I hope this helps you. I would like to see a gps trasmitter imbedded in a carbon or aluminum arrow for the occations when the deer/game animal runs off with your arrow. it could atleast give you a direction of tavel when there isn't much of a blood trail.

In a hunting app. I don't see much use for it. Most shoots are pass throughs or the arrow falls out well before the deer falls down. Cost wouldn't be worth the pay back.

In a target app. it could be handy for beginners but really anybody that's been shooting for more than a couple of weeks shouldn't be missing the target a hole lot.

What would be nice is on a pass thru it tags the gps on the deer like when a whale gets taged. Then you could pull up his location from your treestand or go have coffee and then see if the location changed

Now there's a idea that would sell.
