    So, how fast do you go through arrows when you're shooting 3D, field, etc....whatever you shoot?

    In other words, do you buy about a dozen a month....every 6 months...or are you still using the same dozen you bought with your bow in 1996? :biggrin1:

    In case you missed it...I'm going stir crazy waiting for my bow, already. Shooting the club recurves is getting sorta old (especially since their arrows are about 2" short for my DL....so I shoot wonky).

    I probably buy a half dozen maybe a dozen each year. I just bought a dozen fatboys and recked one while sighting them in. I hit something hard in the belly of the glendel buck. :frusty: :frusty: :frusty:

    Everytime you buy a dozen you have to send one to the arrow gods :frusty:

    Yea, they should be sold in a baker's dozen so you still HAVE a dozen after the initial sacrifice. :)

    It depends on how much you shoot and what kind of shot you are...:biggrin1:
    My 3D arrows get changed out every year just because of the amount of shots on them...but my hunting arrows, maybe a half dozen every few years or so..

    I TRY not to buy more than a dozen in a year. That's a dozen hunting shafts and a dozen target. More than that can get a little spendy.:frusty:

    Depending on how I'm shooting, I don't have to buy fat shafts once ayear. Shoot poorly.....buy arrows, shoot TOO good and buy arrows. Need to find a happy medium or buy more targets:noidea:

    I have a lot of misc. arrows. I buy new arrows all the time cuz the guys like to help me get more speed :peace:(but I usually get a good deal)

    I currently have 2 dozen arrows just cuz one dz shoots a little faster. (hmmmm...maybe I should sell some?)

    When I get TOO much help from a shop owner, I probly buy 2 dozen a year. But I don't lose any :doh:
