back to the skweerl arraws. Jason an I made some AWLLsome arraws for the Jim Hamm survival hunt and I'm using them tomorrow for anythng that moves and is smaller then a armadillo. They are homemade maple shafts (culls) with self nocks and full height turkey feathers 5" long. The points are fence staples set like you would a stone point.
Most of my skwirl arrahs are raminwood.For fletching I use left over pieces from chopping out fletches for my hunting arrows.Anything 4" or longer.Trim length to 4" and cut to 3/4" high.I use as a 4 fletch set up to make sure they have enough stability.For tips I use steel blunts.Some tips I've cut a slot in and drilled slight indents on the sides and inserted a bleeder blade.
Cost per arrow is less than $1.00 each.

No 6 shot, bill, but a hillb..er, hill friend in MD tells me that he can get good groups with his arras at 75 yards ifn' he sticks em down the short-bbl .410 he had and takes the shot outa the shell. Said the feathers ain't worth much after one shot, cause they're pretty much just toast, but he swears he can keep 3 in a pie plate at that range! That outa nut something with them sticks of Jon's!
