2 orange/black striped & 1 solid orange Blazers cuz it is the colors on my fire dept gear and i can see them pretty good in woods

When I change I’ll probably do 2 pink/black striped and 1 solid pink cuz pink is more noticeable to me

I tried a pink nocturnal and it
makes seeing arrows in a target or finding stray arrows easier

Two neon green and one white on the compound. Two yellow one white on the recurve and four white on the really heavy arrows. Just because that’s how they came.Of course I’m down to three on the compound so no telling what color I’ll be shooting next year. (Most likely what’s on sale after Christmas.)

Flo red this year... first time wrapping my arrows. Figured it can't hurt to help me find them when I lose them lol. Plus I really wanted to accessorize the s*** out of my bow... so yeah I tricked out my Elite "Blood" Ritual this year...

Flo orange wrap, flo orange nock, 1 flo orange blazer vane, 2 white blazer vanes

Shows up pretty well. Also, I always run a string that is half flo orange so I can find my bow in the woods if I sit it down, and I like having the colors similar.

Going all white this year, along with white nocks. Was all black with black nocks last year, and that was a mistake. Looked pretty badd@ss, but I would've lost half my arrows if I didn't have a reflective wrap...

Blue and hot pink - Easy to find in a world of greens, yellows, reds, and browns.

3 white, white nock and a reflective wrap. I used white last year but switched to green for this season. Not a big fan of the green so I'll cut up some more white next time.

Great job nutter. Pick the one color that deer can see from a mile away. :tearsofjoy:
That’s what everyone says but they pay more attention to the white side of their tail than we do red and blue strobe lights.
So yellow and blue make green right? So the green leaves are reflecting both Yellow and blue light in order for us to see green. Do deer see leaves as blue?

Definitely not fancy but functional to me: Here's a pic of my Zingers while sighting in the EZV last night. The Zingers show up well in low light IMO. With the exception of the left flyer, my 30 yard groups were better than my 20?????

So I shoot yellow as my primary color fletching because i can see yellow extremely well in low light and I can "read" blood sign well with yellow. What about the rest of you what are your colors and your why???
Yep yellow vanes on silver reflective wraps. Really stands out in when you pass a flashlight over it!

Deer don't see the same as us. Yellow and blue make green for us but who knows what deer actually see.

2 Lime green one white. I tried 2 white and one lime green in the past and found that I see the green much better in flight.
