Measuring arrow length

6026 14
What is the correct way to measure the arrow length for your bow?
If I am shooting a 29dl bow- what size shaft should I be shooting?

When ordering do I count the length of the nock?

I have to disagree with your assessment of how long your hunting arrows should be. I trust that the bow hunter is not SO stupid, that they'll somehow (and I have no idea how this can be done) put their hand in front of the bow and hit it with an arrow/broadhead! I believe that the most important thing is to have a well tuned arrow/bow, so you get the best results between field points and broadheads. To me, that usually means the shorter the arrow the better.

PS. My draw is 27.5 and my arrow length is 25.75.
Really? I know that it HAS happened. You also can not guarantee against equipment failure.
