Fletching colors?

Post by Spauldo on Fri Jul 13, 2012 11:21 pm

Just curious what fletching colors everyone has tried and what they are shooting with now. I have a set of yellow caps and yellow feathers on the way. Saw the set up in "Hunting October Whitetails."

Same here always shot three white & white wrap. If a hunted in snow I might change, but don't have to worry about that here.

Any reasons for all white other than blood? Curious.

Not only for seeing blood on the arrow, but for the ability to see arrow in flight.

White shows up good in flight & on the ground, but mainly for looking at blood & determining how a deer was hit. With white it's alot easier to see if it dark or light colored blood.

White is easier to track and find...reading a hit is a huge bonus!

Right, these are all good. Thinking yellow will help me in the snow as Cbigbear mentioned. Thanks for the thoughts.

I've shot florescent orange for over 30 years only because I see them easier. This spring I bought a feather cutter and plan on cutting natural feathers. I've got goose wing feathers I just haven't had time to play with them yet.

most colors exist in the leaves in my area. I am going to go with pink like 62kodiak. only i will have three feathers with the cock feather traditional to be able to see the difference in the dark. I will post a pick when i get it set up. I like the feather cutter idea and intend to give that a try soon as well. shield cut:)

White on white with painted white shaft. I can find it faster and read it from the tree. In snow I would use something else.

The white looking crests are actually reflective arrow wraps, that I cut into thin strips. Shows up great after dark, can see it from a very long way off.
