Bowman,
I have been looking for a bowman to ask. Are thee fledglings on a arrow arranged in order to create a spin as it flies through the air?

I have been wondering where and when the idea of a spinning ball for accuracy gottarteed.

The fletching is arranged on the shaft at an angle, it's called helical and causes the arrow to spin or rotate in flight making it more accurate.

The more off set the top of the feather is from the bottom the faster the spin (to better stabilize broadheads). Some tune bows to the point they need no to little spin and the feathers (fletching) has no offset. Offset can be right or left. Super super exagerated spin is used for birds, spins so fast the arrow loses speed after 40-50 yards and can be recovered. Called a flu flu? Also the feathers are HUGE compared to regular fletching

Maybe they did get the idea to spin PRB from archery. I'd ask my old Indian hunting buddy but his wife got a free tribal house built and he moved

wild turkeys were recently seen here on the western side of the island. fairly certain they were brought here and released, probably illegally. hope there is a growth in the population soon

Nice bird (and gun)! You missed out. Nothing for us today. Had a hen walk right by at 15 yards. She was helping for probably 30 minutes in the area and we never heard any response to her.

jrm, tell your buddy congrats. Maybe tell him too, that the water is warm here at the forum. Maybe coax him to post his account of the hunt.

Best regards, Skychief

Yes it is. Lory State Park, just west of Fort Collins, Colorado and Horsetooth Reservoir.
