Making just 1 arrow a fella can put a lot of bling on such a stick.Might be fun.Have to wait to see what your victim wants....kind of wood/spine/weight/type of nock/type of point/type of fletching etc.Anything I'm missing here????

Count me in again. Arrows from different members are great.
I found many years ago that it is much easier and more rewarding working with those that don't know anything than those that know it all.

are you going to collect addresses and other stats like in the bow and Christmas trades?  If so, I am shooting a 55# bow @ 29" of draw.  Don't know if I would shoot the gifted arrow, but it would be nice to know I could.

I might be busted up but I can muster out a nice bamboo arrow for a trade. So count me in. I have no knaping abilities but I have some nice arrow heads I have picked up on the farm over the years I can use.

That would make a really special arrow gutshoot. The spirits in that head could hunt again, wouldn't that be awesome.

I'm in if I'm not too late. Please and thank you.  I like making arrows.
Did the Native Americans think about all this that much or just do it?

Eddie I think Robbie is still taking names. Just getting a count together.

I'm in. Sorry I didn't see this earlier. I had my trade bows come in underweight and I've been trying to jam out a couple bows in a hurry. 

I'll either make 1 arrow with 3-4 different fore shafts(swiss army arrow) or a just a nice matched set of 3(two hunters and a practice).
I have nothing but scorn for all weird ideas other than my own.

I'm in,  I'm not a master arrow Smith but when I make some they shoot pretty darn good! The best part about this is that it doesn't have to be daylight to work on an arrow.  And that's a good thing because all of my daylight hours are full for a while.
