Rob, great how to, thanks for posting it. Nice job on those arrows, there is some good mojo with natural turkey feathers on an arrow I think. Now just have to get some of those turkey feathers to work up. Reminds me of the recipe for buffalo burgers which starts … 1. Locate, kill and clean one buffalo …

This should save a few from dropping $100+ on that feather grinding jig.  Thanks Rob!

Great how to. Now I'm gonna have to start talking to all the turkey hunters I know. One or two birds a year just won't be enough.

Excelent post/Tutorial. It is hard to beat a simple setup.I was given 2 bags of wild turkey that I have been wanting to grind and not sure how to do it.Wild Turkey is scarce, and like gold  to get in Northern Alberta. Now I can finaly have some Wild Turkey Fletches.
 Thanks Rob  :)

They make a great looking fletch. Great looking arrows and you can't beat the price  :)  I'm going to have to take a look around at the lake.

Thanks Rob
