GCook... cold water....its pretty common.

Rinsing feathers is a lot less work than dragging, field dressing, butchering, and processing.  :smileystooges:

Personally I’m always thrilled to death to clean blood off feathers!

Yeah Terry I know how to clean them but they are never quite as uniform and that is all I'm saying.  I shot feathers even with modern bows until about 2004.  They just do a better job stabilizing big broadheads.  In Texas we have a lot of opportunities to kill animals and over the years I've put a lot of arrows through deer, pigs and exotics with both feather fletched and Blazer fletched arrows.   However I do bare shaft tune and bare shaft paper tune with my modern bows. 
It's not that I'm incompetent or incapable, and I wouldn't abandon feathers because I think they are superior in flight control.  However in a wet hunt, like it was in New Brunswick, I could have used vanes.
Well actually I couldn't because apparently bears don't care to be out with two feet of snow around and more falling.
But it would be nice to have a half dozen set up that way if they do fly to the same point of impact as has been reported.

Just got some of the new vanes. From my preliminary shooting they shoot the same as feathers. I see these as another option for trad guys. Its like IG, if you don't like them or it doesn't interest you, move on. But they are a great option. I'll be shooting them this year and will be interested to see how they hold up.

No offense to anyone, however I bare shaft tune with quills on and it does not matter, rain or not my arrows fly where I want them to go.

Agree. I also shoot small feathers once I am tuned in. I used the powder as a secondary insurance. I never had an issue.

Full disclosure, I have never been/hunted in Alaska or the Pacific Northwest. So I cant speak for those types of situations.

In saying this, I did receive my Trad Vanes. They DO fly just like a 4” parabolic feather. I am impressed. I will like to get my hands on some 3” when they available. I guess it would be nice to have the insurance in the rain...

I am a feather guy got no beef with those that want to shoot vanes my only question is. How do those AAE vanes hold up in the Heat like what most of us hunt in 95 + degrees or the other side below freezing?

Went to a 3D shoot this weekend with a few arrows fletched up with these trad vanes. I normally shoot 3, five inch shield but I went with four inch on these trad vanes. Shoot them randomly and they were identical in flight and accuracy. I haven’t shoot  broadheads yet, that’s the real test. I like my feathers and will never stop shooting them but it wouldn’t hurt to have a few of these in the quiver.

Durability is a key as well. Although quality feathers last they do wear out.
Long term will the vanes hold their shape, last? 
Feathers also handle getting shot through with another arrow well.  Vanes not so much.
Keep the feed back coming.

I have seen some folks that shot vane off and elevated rest and also off the shelf but those vanes where not as thin material as the AAE vanes are that why I was asking about heat and below freezing.
