How many arrows?
I usually took at least 6 arrows and extra nocks. You mention something about stripping your vanes? I always shot with 3-4" feathers. I could have almost 50% of the feathers missing, and still group 5 arrows in a 1 - 1 1/2" group at 20 yrds. Another thing, when the vanes are fletched, are they putting a drop of glue on each end of the fletching to hold it on, helps on pass thru's too.
