As long as they are well sealed, wet weather shouldn’t bother wood arrows. Footing is normally used to add weight and/or strength to the front end of the arrow, neither of which applies much to hardwoods. Footing is also used to add length if needed. There are plenty of us fletchers who will build with the laminated birch.
