I remember when fletchings were all feathers. Turkey feathers were standard , a big screwup on rainy days. Don't know why, for centuries , no one clued into waterproof goose feathers! Why didn't they become the standard?
I remember wooden arrow shafts with cross grains. All it would have taken ,is spliting the wood you were using, and using the split side against the saw fence, to eliminate any cross grains.
Ditto wood used for bows.

I shot a 3D Tourney at Nanaimo one year in early April - I used my recurve just for the heck of it.

It rained all day long. :Doh!:

By the afternoon my fletchings were flatter than P on a platter. Worst score I have ever shot - ever. :hopelessness:
