Default Ways to facilitate the taking out of the arrow from the block

Greetings to all!
Please share this theme tricks of taking out the arrows from the block.
Maybe you have discussed it anywhere, but I have not found.

I heard, if the first 10cm (lol) of the arrow spread by the silicone sponge for shoes, the arrow will remove very easily.
Above all, if it is wooden arrows, they must be covered with varnish.

You gotta tell us where you're from, I love reading your accent!!

First off, yes, apply some type of silicone arrow lubricant or tire black or even Ivory soap to the last 10 cm of the shaft (the part that sticks into the target). This should help with pulling. Also make sure that you gently scrape off any target material that sticks to your arrow after pulling--this is especially true with carbon arrows as they generate a faair amount of heat when entering the target and can actually melt a little of the target material onto the arrow. Not sure about wooden arrows as I've never shot them....

Most archery shops online sell arrow pullers ranging in price from 6 bucks to 12. Try Lancaster Archery for one and 3 Rivers for the 2nd.

I really started to think that nobody will help me with this problem.
I'm from Europe. Here are actually very few true lovers of archery.

I have also read on here in one of my Traditional Archery magazines that if you get a arrow stuck in a tree you can use a flat tip screwdriver to help remove it.

scorpion makes a product just for easy arrow removal. http://scorpionvenomarchery.com/

for wooden arrow shafts, ivory soap rubbed along the first few inches of the shaft will help with removal or just use the scorpion venom arrow release fluid. The stuff works great.
