Octopus, your target arrows and hunting arrows should be the same length. Head down to an archery shop and have them measure your draw length so that they can cut your arrows to fit you.
Yes, I see that I need to measure the original hunting arrows. I had gone to walmart to buy cheaper arrows but it did not occur to me that the arrows I had bought at the archery shop were of a particular size. I will make sure I buy the proper arrows next time. I was not aware that draw length was so important. I did manage to shoot the longer arrows just fine though.
