Wooden Arrows

Posted in Archery Arrows by admin on May 21, 2010

How did Native Americans and/or other ancient peoples make wooden arrows?

I mean how did they make them straight and keep them consistent in diameter, etc.?
I know they probably weren't perfect but in order to survive I'm sure that some sort of process was developed to make them as straight and consistent as possible.

Much in the same way that hunters do today. Except that their tools were made of wood, bone, and rock, instead of metal, and plastic. There's a publication called "Primitive Archer". You may be able to find an article or some kind of link on their website that will give you more information.
