Not to quibble but it actually means Bow wood that is dark. I thought that is what I said to begin with. Mike

Not a traditional archer, but a francophone. Bois= wood. D'arc = of bow. Nothing foncÚ (dark) in there! This thread reminds me I should head over to the range this weekend. Good stuff!

So I was out launching arrows, moved out to ~18 yards, and shaved off most of the vane on one arrow with another arrow. Anyone know where I can get replacement feathers? These arrows are 10 bucks each, so I'd like to repair it.

I'll check the shop I bought them at. Gateway Feathers looks good too, but looks like they only offer a limited selection online. Some other places want me to buy $50 worth at a time. Ebay, maybe?

I'd say get some from 3 rivers if you can't find them locally. You need to know if the fletching is right wing or left wing.

You're also gonna need a fletching jig and double sided tape or glue. I'd recommend getting a bitzenburger fletching jig. They're expensive but are worth the money.

You wanna start with the shop where you bought it because you need a jig to put the feathers on correctly.
They should have a fletching jig.
Three Rivers her any number of places would have the feathers, but like I said you need a Jig to put them on right.

You're going to want to buy a jig at some point in the future, but unless you want to buy one now see if the shop where you bought the arrows can fix them.

been making my own for many years now and shoot nearly every day...it's the only thing(almost) that I know of that I enjoy more than making/drinking beer. I just discovered this thread and would be more than happy to help anyone interested in trad. archery.

Samick Sage @ 45# here... absolutely love traditional archery. I've made many arrows and targets, but love shooting flu-flus at birds.

I've been trying to get a pheasant with my recurve for the past two seasons, I've come very close, but haven't done it yet.
