Minnesota Adult Hunter Safety Course


Covered Quiver

All arrows should be carried safely in a covered quiver. Covered quivers are a convenient and easy way to carry your arrows, giving you quick access while protecting the broadheads and preventing injury. Certain types of quivers can also protect both the arrows and fletching from damage.

Safety first! A wooden arrow cannot handle the extreme pressure of a compound bow. It could shatter, causing damage to the bow and possibly injuring someone.

Arrow Points

Let's review the various types of arrow points available.

Bullet points are used for target practice.

Blunt points are used for small game and are made of metal or rubber.

Field points are used for target practice and small game hunting.

Judo points are used mostly in grassy areas for small game.

Fishing points are used for bow fishing and feature barbs to hold the fish to the arrow.

Broadhead points are used for big game and generally have interchangeable blades that can either be in a fixed position or a newer type, which opens only on impact.

Safety first! Always use a broadhead wrench when adding or removing a broadhead point. Careful! The points are very sharp!
