Natural arrow fletching

We make our arrows for bows with hard wood shafts for high penetration and durability, with incised groovings for straightness. They are tapered for front heavy stability and lowered deflection compared to a straight shafted arrow. Sinew bindings & wild turkey feathers complete the natural and historic authenticity of these arrows.

Cultures around the world used bows and arrows, and although the designs may be similar, there were often slight variances. The native american arrows were often as different from one another as arrows from across the world, but then also could be strikingly similar. The Mongolians and the Dakota, for instance, both used tapered shafts.

Wild Turkey Feathers: Cut and processed in house

Helical Fletch: spiraling the arrow to reduce recovery time after the arrows paradox

Elk Sinew Bindings: Wrapped on the ends of the quills with hide glue, just like the old days!

Grooved arrow shafts: Inspired by the arrows made by plains indians, we offer arrows with grooved "lightning marks". Though passed down as a symbol, the groovings also help to prevent warpage in the shaft.

Tapered arrow shafts: The front of the arrow is larger diameter than the rear. The tapered arrow design was used around the world for ages and provides better clearance and stability than straigh cut shafts.

Wood nocks: Our arrow nocks are made in the same style as indigenous arrows from around the world. They are bulbous, providing an easy hold in the fingers.
