    My girlfriend received a 1955 Bear Kodiak Special from her Father that belong to her grandfather. The bow was in amazingly good shape but the feather rest, which I had never seen before, had to be replaced. I was amazed to see that someone actually had this rest.

    Installing it on the bow was a snap, just peel and stick, however it is hard to get all four corners of the leather base to lay flat on the curved shelf of the bow. maybe softening the leather up with a hair dryer might have helped, but once in place it remains in place.

    It really is an amazing rest, the arrows draw cleanly and release without any disruption because the feathers compress downward as the arrow moves with the grain of the feathers.

    My girlfriend is a very good shot and they has definitely helped her grouping while keeping with the tradition of the bow.

    It is fine if you are just in your backyard, and not moving a lot, but, in a hunting situation, I find the arrow, even though the feathers are sloped toward the riser, has a tendency to fall off. I plan to modify the rest with additional feathers and use a higher one at the outside the reduce the likelihood of that happening. And as was mentioned by another reviewer, it does not like to bend over a riser crown. I plan on using it on a old Ben Pearson recurve with a flat shelf.

      Comments about Wild Turkey Feather Arrow Rest:

      I've been shooting since the early 1960's. I'm one of those guys who likes to fiddle with different ideas to improve accuracy. That being said, I've never shot with a feather arrow rest till yesterday. I shoot every day.

      I'm attaching a photo of one of my groups from yesterday. Can't say in all my years of shooting I've ever found anything that improved my group size so fast.

      No way of knowing how durable it is but if it wears out, I'll buy another. Wouldn't you?

      Comments about Wild Turkey Feather Arrow Rest:

      Love how this looks on my black widow. Have had no problem with feather rest not performing when wet. Love how silent arrow is through rest. Have shots thousands of arrows and little sign of wear. Like others, getting all of backing to stick on radioed shelf was small problem. So I used arrow fletching glue on corners. Easy.

        Great for a flat shelf riser, will not stick on a radiused or crowned shelf very well, other than that a really cool rest.

          Love the way it looks on my Samick Sage, especially now that I have a FF Flemish string. Seems to squish down well, smaller than I thought it would be...about 1"x2".

            I wanted an elevated rest for my 71 Shakespeare Kaibab and this feather rest was just the ticket. I really dig the way it looks, and more importantly, how it performs. I wouldn't use it in a rain storm but for a Sunday afternoon 3D its a great add to my traditional gear.

                    Bought this feather rest for my new Bear supermag 48", always used a rug/ hair rest previously but really like this feather rest. It provides a good arch to the rest( to reduce the effects of hand torque)and it draws super quite.I'm thinking on dusting it with the fletching powder to water proof it a bit( not sure how it stands up to a good wetting yet). It is smaller then I have expected,which is actually a better design. It does have a stiff backing, so you may need to help it adhere if your rest has a heavy radious to it.All in all I'm liking it and if it holds up well in wet conditions I'll swap all my bows to this style of rest.

                          This feather rest was built by "Trap" himself and he has made the best feather rests I have ever seen with real wild turkey feathers...They are slanted at just the correct amount to keep the arrow on the rest during the draw process..
                          I got two of them for my older recurve's with the flatter shelves!
