Here you go Al. This one is from two wild turkey tail feathers. Secondary wing feathers can be used if they are straight enough. Pull of some of the feather from each side but make sure to leave the quill.
Here`s what it look like finished. Make sure that you trim the front quill down to a very smooth transition on the shaft so it doesn`t gouge a chunk of meat out of your finger when you shoot it. These arrows have a very stable arrow flight.
Thanks bigtime Nick!!! That is a little different from what I was planning to do but I like it much better. Looks easier than my proposed method too! I was going to strip the feathers completely down one side, but I can see how leaving feather on both sides will work even better.
Either a very sharp knife or a fresh flint flake. If you use scissors it doesn`t want to do right for some reason. After you have the feather pulled like in the first picture, lay it flat on a piece of wood and carefully draw the knife across the feather for a smooth cut.
