What color arrows?

Postby DeerCamp » Tue Aug 03, 2010 6:48 pm

I was wondering what color fletchings everyone was going to be shooting this year? Im having my arrows made for this season right now. Im going with white and pink, with an orange wrap and a blue knock. I feel that the pink is one of the select few colors that is ever in the deer woods. And as for the orange wrap, it allows me to see where the arrow has been placed ona traveling deer..Whats the reasoning behind your choices?

Brown arrows,  2 Flo-orange vanes and 1 Yellow and a Hunter Orange knock. Reason?  Up in the maple leaves, you'd never see 'em, except for the hunter orange-- those knocks and vanes showed up well against any background.

I do not know what colors deer can see or not see, but I would go with PINK.  Pink shows up in all conditions, I do not care about others questioning my masculinity.[:D]

I play a lot of disc golf and we have different colored discs.  The easiest color to find is PINK.  Orange works well except in the fall.  Same with yellow.  Deep blue is good, but red is the worst.  It disappears in the evening.  White only works in certain conditions.

If I could (and provided pink is not a deer no-no) I would buy every part of an arrow pink in color.  Peer laughter be darned.....you can find pink!

Man Jerry, you have about every color covered. All you need is a green arrow with a yellow broadhead and you'd be throwing a rainbow at 'em.

I'm going with white as my two veins and a yellow cock vein. I figure that I'd love to recover my arrow, especially if it's undamaged, but I'm more interested in recovering the deer. Hopefully I'll see him fall and if not, hope for hair and blood at the location I shot him. Finding the arrow is only a plus.
