me and my coach had a right laugh... dave who was missing the target alot thought he placed his arrow behind it. so there looking for it for 10 minutes(cause its a scool field and all) and i say to my coach i bet its infront of the target(which it was:P). he was about to shout it when we got talkign about how to find arrows more efficently... well ive thought of a few but i wanna know how people get theres first.
Sidenote...some dolt at the club set the target at 40m not 40 yard's..poor dave:P
"Remember the flame, lad, and the void," Tam. wheel of time.
Concentrate on a single flame and feed all your passions into it-fear, hate, anger-until your mind became empty. Become one with the void,Tam said and you could do anything.
Depending on where the shoot is I will go back the next day and look when the course is empty. I have found a few of mine and a few of other guys. If you find arrows I just leave them at the club for others to pick them up.
1 good turn deserves another.

Well if there is a problem with somebody that keeps losing arrows, tell them to use a fishing rig, Arrow stay tied to the string thus less loss of arrow. 5 minute search, If I don't find it I go without it.
mine varies. If I think there is a good chance the arrow survived I'll look for a few minutes. If I heard it hit a tree or rock and go flying its a gonner.
Yes, that's about my philosophy. If it's hitting something hard, you'll know it by the sound, and you can forget finding it since trying to use it, even if it looks 'normal', will likely result in an accident you don't want to have happen to you...
Well, it's not that I'm cheap, but these Maxima carbon arrows are pretty expensive. Unless I'm interfering with others shooting, I'll look for 20 minutes or so.
If I can't find it in the first five minutes, I go back to the shooting point and try to better understand the likely lane of fire. Then I rewalk the lane concentrating on the colors of my vanes. Usually I find them. Seems like they often turn up further away than I was first looking.
I usually finish the course, and go back. Tell my son if he finds my arrows I will pay him a few bucks....usually works and since his eyes are younger and better (um, yeah) we usually have more success!!!! Plus, we get to spend more time talking...I have an old camping fork I bent the tines over for a modified rake, sometimes I break out the metal detector.....
