Last year on CRAFTED, we talked with Blister reviewer, Paul Forward, about the art, ethics, and craftsmanship of traditional bows. And today, we’re publishing the companion conversation to that episode, where our subject is, naturally … arrows.

We recorded this right after Paul had returned from his annual hunting trip on Kodiak Island, in Alaska, so we talk a bit about that trip; provide a brief recap of Paul’s personal hunting ethic, and then, we dive into the art – and the science – of arrows.
