To come to think of it, I just fletched the arrow the night before and I did not put a drop on the ends like I usually do. I honestly didn’t ever do it for that reason, but so they would not fall off if it went through some rough brush.

One other thing that helps. Take another arrow with a field point installed and use the field point as a “steam roller” to squash the leading edge of the feather back towards the nock end of the arrow about 1/4″ (in other words, only the first 1/4″ gets mushed). Helps quite a bit.
