i use florescent orange and white on my fletching it helps to better locate the shot placement. if the color isnt moving i dont think they see it as a threat

lol. i like that.
Same here! :wink:

I think like it was mentioned above, unless its moving, they don't see it as a threat.

Most use bright colors on arrows to find the arrow and if you video tape your hunts, it helps with showing where the hit was made.

Because deer are for the most part color blind.. The nice leaves and twigs on your camo clothing are for you and you alone.. If you made camo for deer to not see you'd use blacks and grays in a large pattern..Randy

I choose the fletching colors to follow the shot and find the arrow. No doubt smell and movement are bigger priorities. Many have killed many deer in the past wearing red flannel.

I always have a fletch cover over my fletchings. You need bright colors so you can track your arrow in flight and find it after the shot. The one in this pic is made by Limbsaver. Most of the ones I use are custom made by my mother in law.

The Realtree Red Flannel is next to come. Right now they are perfecting jerky, sausage, and polo shirts.

Deer can see solid colors. Thats way we ware camo to brake them up. In the 60's we get old brown or green coveralls and take black spray paint and pant spots or strips on them. Bright arrow you have the battle won if you can see and know were the arrow hits the animal and you can find it. All you need to do is put a cover over your arrows. White wraps they see really good if they are not covered in you quiver when setting in a stand because of them being in a group. Good bowhunters have know this for years and have had made covers to put over there arrow. It"s not any thing new. I have been using a covers off and on over my arrow it the quiver for over the last 30 years when using a white crested arrows. It's not the color it's the solid refection of light off your arrows, face or bare hands that they see like when on you face when your not using a head net or camo paint. Bowhunters would always grow beards to keep the refections of there face, but then hair holds more scent than any thing on your body. You can't grow hair on your arrows

Just wait!...I hear "Rogaine" is entering the archery industry. Their patented 'arrow-growth technology' will revolutionize the game!!!

The only downfall is the colors are limited to Brunette, Blonde, Black, and Red...they're working out the texture issues as we speak.
