That first one or two are cool to do then it gets expensive.

Start shooting at different dots on the target if you do not like buying arrows.

I know a very few people that a split arrow is pretty common thing with them if they want to, most of us mortals just split the rare one occasionally

Done it myself twice on field points at 20 yards.
Then once on broadheads.

You feel like you're on top of the world at first.

But like kmon1 says, it gets expensive because you just destroyed 2 arrows in the process.

I still shoot multiple fieldpoints onto a single target to record my grouping.
But during broadhead time, it's strictly 1 arrow per 1 target.

Pretty rare if you ask me. I've only done it once and like others say, it's exciting, but then you realize your down two arrows. I try and vary my target aim points now because aside from this, you'll start ruining fletchings as your groups get tighter and you nick your previous arrows

I have been bow hunting since '86 and never done it. But again, I shoot different dots. But, back in the beginning, I would knock off a lot of fletchings and it didn't take long to learn that if I didn't want to mess up any more arrows, shoot at different dots.

I've done quite a few with compounds over the years. We used to shoot at each others arrows and make bets on doing it to each other. I've had four with trad bows the last two years. However a couple of them were just me missing consistently. hammer


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Just as sqiggy said, I have several and at first pretty cool, but 6 damaged arrows gets expensive. I shoot single shots or multiple spots now!

Not that expensive and if it builds your confidence and it impresses your friends then go for it. I have done it few times, wasn't meant just, just pure luck on my part. More fun when you do it to a friends arrow for sure! duel

That describes my split arrows with recurves, consistent misses

I've never seen a 3 some Robinhood. Impressive!
I too have done a Robinhood double on a few and then lost that excitement and ruining them.

I've done it many times with the older aluminum arrows, but only once with a full carbon arrow. I think it happens less with these carbon arrows and fast shooting bows (normally just splits the first arrow)

she got lucky as hell with the three and it happened at indoor state on a rough weekend for her so I was even more surprised the one happened not to mention the 2rd.
