What are your favorite hunting color combos? Pictures would be great. I'm looking for new set up.

I just use 3 red fletch flex 185's.... hunting, 3d, and target ..........they do everything I need and just as long as the guy fletching them up stays out of the sauce they usually stay stuck to the shaft.

one white, 2 neon yellow blazer's..

.As for them coming off, I got a tip that changed my fletching luck.....I use a product called Loctite instant Ultra gel....It is a super glue gel and it works great! ...use qtips to wipe off the extra and you pretty much need pliers to get em off.... Looks like a factory arrow and holds even better...

I been using the GOAT TUFF and even cleaning my shafts and lightly ruffing them up with sandpaper and still they come off when shooting cold weather. Im gonna try the LOCTITE.
Does it turn white on the shafts like regular superglue. Thanks for the tip

O yeah, sorry Duckdog32, I like all white 2" blazers on my hunting arrows (untill winter for obvious reasons) with 3deg heli with no wrap. Wraps whistle out of the bow like a artillery round getting ready to hit the deck. Dont believe me then safely stand down range BEHIND SOMETHING, and listen to one being shot toward target. I know deer can hear it coming if I can. I was in artillery in the marine corps and cant hear real good

Not to sure about this Ducky I've got wraps on most of my Arrows and at 285'\sec plus not to much seems to escape the noise you seem to be hearing ???? Maybe it the string your hearing is your bow a Hoyt????

First, it is a hoyt, second, you cant hear it shooting only when down range. Only the wraped arrows did it. None of the straight or helical blazers made a noise. Also, the quick spins whistle down range in my experience, and third, if I fly to australia, you gonna take me hog hunting and show me how to bait em up with a deer carcus?

It would be a pleasure anytime,you get yourself down here and the party's on!!!!We don't use deer for bait we use road kill,normally Skippy the bush Kangaroo,Skips also great for bringing foxes and dingo's in close as well!!!
