Default lost arrows?

Just out of curiousity how many arrows do you loose in a year? I have lost 3 so far counting shooting in the winter.

Thanks

I have yet to lose an arrow...

I guess my goal on the longer shots is to at least hit the target. I think if I wasn't confident of that I wouldn't be shooting that far.

I know it happens etc... but some guys seem to lose ALOT of arrows!

I've lost the use of a few: two to a 50yd Robin Hood, three to hitting rocks when I missed judged targets at two 3-d matches, and two that I just couldn't find.

I could probably count on one hand the amount of arrows I've lost in 15 years. I know two of them were bare shafts that said goodbye while trying to tune. The other few? Can't remember, but the reason it's such a low count is that I don't take shots I'm not capable of making.

The only 2 arrows I have lost in the last 10 years was 1 that didn't pass through a deer
and it ran off with it and broke it and the other 1 was a pass through on a deer that apparently buried up under some tall grass. I have not lost any while practicing in a long time.

Just lost one yesterday. New dropaway rest. Found out if you draw to quick arrow will set off to the side of rest and shoot left. Way left. Scary now that I think of it that arrow could have gone anywhere.

Geez actually losing one? I couldn't tell you. I've smashed them or otherwise ruined them shooting through a target or having an animal break them. But its been a long time since I actually lost one.
