I have them on all my arrows strictly for helping me see where I hit and tracking. On my judo arrow I shot them as well so I can find my arrow if buried under something. I lost two arrows in Kansas without lighted nocks.

are these traditional?

(tongue in cheek) as I know several people don't support them because they are an advancement in technology. I don't know that I can agree to their point. Yes, they are technology, but they're also designed to help with game recovery, which should be all of our main objective, right?

In my mind and the reason I use them is comparable to a string tracker. It helps me make a better decision on whether to track right away or wait because I can see my shot better and if the arrow goes with the animal it helps me find the animal I just shot.

There are two things that tie my guts in a knot. Wounding an animal or losing one I know is going to die. This helps me avoid those two situations.

There are people on this site that use the string trackers and although I have never used one, I can sure see where they would be a good thing when a turkey takes off flying with your arrow.

I'm about the most traditional person I know! I make my own laminated recurve bows, make my own strings, make my own fletching out of turkeys I beg from friends, do my own butchering of meat, do my own taxidermy, and make my own knives to butcher! With that said I USE carbon arrows and lighted nocks. Specifically Nocturnals! I can't imagine hunting without them! To each their own.
So I guess I fall out of the realm for trad police! So be it! Been at this "trad" thing for about 40 years now!

I left one laying on my bench for 2 weeks and it was still bright enough you could see it in the dark from a good distance..they last a really long time.

I've used them off and on thru the years. On two different occasions on solo bowhunts I found deer that I shot that otherwise would have been a grid search in the daylight. Steep shot angle on both that resulted in one hole going in and none coming out and no blood trail to speak of.

They don't help you shoot better but they do help with what you shot! Right?

I like them but they clash with my loin cloth and clam shell knife.
I enjoy the romantic aspect's of traditional archery/ hunting but there is a place for technology.
Without it we'd still be in a loin cloth with stone tools.
Just don't let technology take the place of skill.
