As an archer shooting a lot of 3D animals in the forest, i tend to shoot over them and searching for my arrow.
as some of you might now, any sandy/mossy/grassy/leafy environment may eat up arrows so much you almost cant find them!
to compensate for this problem i made this. you may notice people using small rods with a piece of antler on it, or the paint roller holders. if there is anything solid they do weard things in the ground and they are usually short and break easily.
Because i did not make pictures of the making process, i will tell you what to do ;) please make sure to read the entire ible before starting, because your own idea might just as well work!
Old Broomstick handle, 1 inch thick and approximately 60cm/26inch long or longer (longer people could use a longer one to avoid back problems!) cut it down when done with it!
Plate of aluminum or steel, around 3 or 4mm thick.
a few good screws, long enough to penetrate the broomstick
optional: paint to decorate, or a piece of bicycle inner tube
powerdrill with both metal and wood drillbit, get the wood drillbit a bit smaller then the screw so the thread can dig into the wood. the metal drillbit needs to be large enough so you dont destroy your thread on it ;)
powered saw, !!that can cut the same thickness as your metal plate!!
a few SMALL files
Optional: hammer and punchtool, easy to remove tape, Glue
