“For some archers, the thought of making their own arrows has never crossed their minds. They will slave over a bow, tillering the weapon with the utmost care until its profile is nothing short of perfect. But when its time to shoot the bow, a manufactured arrow ends up on the string. If you desire to make a truly handmade weapon system, then the quest is only half-finished with the completion of the bow. The next challenge is to make the most important part of the system: the arrow itself.” By Billy Berger

“The making of a primitive arrow is not as daunting of a task as one might think. It’s simply the putting together of a variety of skills. This presentation is just one way, using techniques that I am familiar with, of accomplishing this project. I try to make it appear to be a simple task. Maybe over simplified, I don’t know. To me it’s just the coming together of a variety of skills to end with a finished, functional product. To get real nitty, making a primitive arrow requires the full use of primitive; stone blades, sandstone, hand drill fire, sinew, self-made hide glue or pine pitch, et al.                                             By John McPherson 

“Without a doubt, one of the most attractive and traditional arrow fletches found on the arrows of traditional and primitive hunters are the naturally barred wing feathers of America’s wild turkey. The grand old bird is not only a challenge to hunt, but he provides excellent table fare as well as superior fletching for the arrows we hunt with. No wonder the large bird is so highly sought after.”By Mickey Lotz
