I started Bow hunting 46 years ago with wooden arrows and a longbow. Much has changed since then.
One thing that hasn't changed is I still lose an arrow occasionally. When I find it weeks or months later, I'm still able to remove the field point or broadhead, thanks to an old tip.
I put a little Vaseline petroleum jelly on the threads of my field points and broadheads.
This prevents rust in the event I hunt in bad weather or I lose an arrow for a time.
The Petroleum jelly is odorless, yet it prevents rust and acts as a lubricant when it comes time to remove the point.
I started doing this in 1966, and it has saved many expensive arrows and broadheads over the years.
