I usually save the first one from each species of animal I shoot, for sentimental value. I started saving each one but started getting cluttered and they make such great practice arrows! If they do break the arrow or bend an insert, I thoroughly check the arrow to make sure it is safe to shoot after being shortened then cut them to length for a friend of mines nephew and let him shoot it until lost or broken.

Default Nope,

It's just an arrow and ACC's are too expensive to let sit around..LOL

I once arrowed my WY bull elk, my PA buck and a PA doe, the outsert bent on the arrow when it passed through the doe which retired that arrow. I still have it.

I simply replaced the blades of the Muzzy on it at the time.

Every arrow in my quiver has killed either a caribou or a deer before. I used to retire my arrows, but I actually pulled a few off the wall, cleaned them up, spin tested them, and am planning on using them again... call me cheap... I am.

Nope. But if I can help it I don't wash it. It's my little trophy. I do clean up the broadhead though for future use.

I do check for wear and cracks. If I find any I do "retire" the arrow.
Ditto here! I'm so cheap that I squeek. I baby my arrows, then clean em up real good after I get a deer and reuse them over and over and over.
