I think I have lost 3 in a year and that includes hunting also. One was due to a robin hood I removed the other one.

I bought a dozen last year and still have 11 left. I NEARLY lost one this summer but i stumbled on it about two weeks ago.
The missing arrow is burried in the swamp water after i missed a doe last year.:sad:

What are you people shooting into when you're practicing? Rocks? ;)

Usually 1-3 per year, not including hunting. Usually they get nicked by other arrows when I am dumb enough to shoot groups. ;)

I started doing two things that have saved me a few hundred$$$ easy.
#1 Never shoot arrows at the same spot. I found these bright orange stickers the size of a nickel at officemax. I put five stickers on my target and shoot an arrow at each dot. To quote Mel Gibson, "Aim small, miss small."
#2 If I'm sighting in at a new yardage and I'm not sure where the arrow is gonna hit, I put a judo point on. If I do miss the target completely, the judo point prevents the arrow from getting lost in the grass.

I bought a dozen 2 years ago and knock on wood I still have 10 left. One had a splice in it when I got a little to close with my broadhead practice. The second one flew over the target into a field of deep grass when my site moved on me.
