I was reading an article about these new cresting wraps out. They seem a lot simpler than the paint I use and are supposed to work pretty well. I checked out one of the sites, eze-eye.com where they showed all the different colors and styles when I got to thinking, I wonder if they have reflective wraps? Those would be great for finding your arrow after dark. I also got to wondering about glow in the dark ones, but quickly figured they wouldn't be as good as the reflective, but yet I started wondering if a deer can see glow in the dark paint. The studies say that they can see UV light, but I wonder where Glow in the Dark paint falls in the spectrum. Anyone with an opinion or more scientific knowledge to answer this. I don't think knowing would be of any real benefit, but I just want to know.

Considering the fact that phosphorous (active ingredient in most <font color="#00FF00">Glo</font> paints) fluoresces under a <font color="#800080">black lite </font>(Ultra Violet) I would say they can probably see it a whole lot better than we can!....IMHO

The glow in the dark paint wouldn't help you find your arrow's anyhow..The paint needs to be exposed to a source of light for an amount of time for it to activate..Or one powerful quick light source..Reflective tape on your arrow's although will help in your search for an arrow @ night...You also take a risk @ them reflecting sunlight during the day as your hunting...your best bet would be to purchase a game tracker..BPS & Cabela's sell them..You also fletch your arrows in color's that will stand out from the natural color's around..Or you can just do what most of us do....Come to realize that your going to lose them from time to time..
