Yesterday when I got done hunting I got out my discharge arrow and fired in at an angle into the ground. When the arrow hit the ground two pieces of the arrow went skyward. The last time I fired it I fired it into a bank from about 15 yards and it bounced straight back and came close to hitting me, which is why I didn't fire it straight down or almost straight down. Today I went to Lancaster Archery Supply where I bought the arrow to get a new one, I asked if they had one that would hold up better. The guy at the proshop told me he never recommended the arrows. When I aske him what he recommends he took me over to the target bag section and grabbed a small yellow Jacket "discharge bag". It is small, 17" x 13",I can throw it into one of the baskets on my ATV and leave it there under the cover while I am hunting and set it up and shoot a target arrow into it when I am leaving. Those arrows are expensive if they are going to break after a couple of discharges, the bag should last me pretty much as long as I will be archery hunting.
