Safety Warning

Victory Archery is committed to safe archery. Archery/hunting requires a high level of skill and caution at all times to avoid personal injury or property damage. Victory Arrows should only be used by those trained in the proper use of bows and arrows or under the supervision of a qualified instructor. Arrows should always be inspected before each use for signs of damage. Impact with hard objects, other arrows or being shot into a game animal can all cause damage. We recommend flexing each arrow and inspecting for any sign of cracks or splits before each use. Grasp the arrow between the point and nock, flex the arrow along its length so as to deflect it approximately 1 to 2” in an arc and listen for cracking. Never use an arrow with any sign of damage. A cracked or split arrow can suffer catastrophic failure upon release and cause severe injury to yourself or others in the area.

PRACTICE SAFE ARCHERY

After loading an arrow into a bow, never point at any person or property. An arrow can be accidentally dis­charged and cause severe injury and property damage. Never shoot an arrow without having full visual contact with the target and knowing what is behind the target. Always inspect your bow, arrows and components prior to each use. 

BOWHUNTING PRECAUTIONS

When hunting, the possibility of arrow damage increases significantly. This is due to the high likelihood of the arrow impacting various things (roots, trees, fences, posts, rocks, hard ground, bone, etc), possible misuse (improper maintenance, abuse, or care), impact with other arrows, or the angle in which it impacts/passes through an animal. Damage to the arrow can result in sharp and/or splintered carbon fragments which are harmful to humans, especially if ingested. If there is ANY suspected carbon arrow damage please utilize the guidelines listed below.

  • Thoroughly inspect the entrance wound, exit wound, and surrounding area prior to removing the carbon arrow in order to determine whether or not there are splinters/fragments imbedded in the game animal.
  • Use extreme caution when removing the broken segments of the carbon arrow shaft.
  • While field dressing game animals, use care to avoid splinters/fragments of carbon fiber.
  • Carefully remove and dispose of any flesh that has the presence or suspected presence of carbon fiber splinters or fragments.

To err on the side of caution is always the best course of action. Victory Archery is committed to safe archery. Use good judgment in determining whether or not something is unsafe, incorrect, or there is a possibility of harm.

ARROW SAFETY WARNING

Victory Archery is committed to safe archery. Archery/hunting requires a high level of skill and caution at all times to avoid personal injury, death, or property damage. Victory products should only be used by those trained in the proper use of bows and arrows or under the direct supervision of a qualified instructor. After loading an arrow into a bow, never point at any person or property. An arrow can be accidentally discharged and cause severe injury, death, or property damage. Never shoot an arrow without having full visual contact with the target and knowing what is behind the target. Always inspect your bow, arrows, and components prior to each use. Careless handling of arrows or components can result in severe injury. If an arrow has been damaged, or appears to be damaged, dispose of it immediately.

NEVER ATTEMPT TO SHOOT A DAMAGED ARROW. INSPECT ARROWS FOR DAMAGE PRIOR TO EVERY SHOT

Impact with hard objects, other arrows, or being shot into a game animal can all cause damage. No list is all inclusive; there are many other conditions and situations that may cause damage, so it is crucial to your safety and the safety of those around you that all arrows and components (new or used) are inspected for possible damage. We recommend flexing each arrow and inspecting for any sign of cracks or splits before each use. Grasp the arrow between point and nock. Flex the arrow, away from you or others, along its length so as to deflect it approximately 1 to 2 inches in an arc and listen for cracking. Before shooting, run your fingertip along the entire arrow shaft length, feeling and looking for nicks, cracks, splits, dents, or other marks that could indicate any possible shaft damage. Never use an arrow with any sign of damage. A cracked or split arrow can suffer catastrophic failure upon release and cause severe injury to yourself and others in the area. Before each shot, ensure that the nock is fully seated against the string and that the nock fits tightly into the shaft. Adherence to these recommended guidelines will reduce the possibility of injury and promote a safe and fun archery experience.

CROSSBOW BOLT SAFETY WARNING

After loading an arrow into a bow, never point at any person or property. An arrow can be accidentally discharged and cause severe injury and property damage. Never shoot an arrow without having full visual contact with the target and knowing what is behind the target. Always inspect your bow, arrows and components prior to each use.

NEVER ATTEMPT TO SHOOT A DAMAGED BOLT. INSPECT BOLTS FOR DAMAGE PRIOR TO EVERY SHOT

Impact with hard objects, other bolts, or being shot into a game animal, can all cause damage. We recommend flexing each bolt and inspecting for any sign of cracks or splits before each use. Grasp the bolts firmly with both hands between the point and nock. Twist, flex and squeeze the shaft while listening for cracking. Never use bolts with any sign of damage. A cracked or split bolt can suffer catastrophic failure upon release and cause severe injury to yourself or others in the area.
