Yep, Flu Flus allow you to retrieve the arrows. Not so much without.
We don't have larger birds here for my recurve and arrows, but I always wanted to try geese but never got that far.
Pheasants would be fun and a bit larger than trying it with doves. But years ago I managed to pin a few doves with the arrow while deer hunting....
May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields and, Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
