Picked up a dozen bamboo arrow shafts at the UBM Festival last weekend in Springfield. Experimenting on these to see just how tough they really are. They say bamboo is Natures carbon arrows. We shall see after I get the turkey feather fletching on them. If they fly straight I'll attach a few flint tips for deer hunting this fall. I notched the ends for nocks and wrapped with artificial sinew to keep them from splitting.
