Note: The values shown in the table below are after you have strung the bows! You receive half of the experience when you cut the bow from the log, and the other half once you have strung it!

Materials needed to make arrows:
To make an arrow, you must cut some Logs and use a Knife to cut them into Arrow shafts. By adding Feathers to the Arrows shafts, you will only need to add arrowsheads to complete the arrows. Arrowheads can either be purchased from a member's archery store, or smithed at an anvil. Feathers can either be bought from the fishing shop in Port Sarim, by killing Chickens, or by catching birds in the Hunter skill.
NOTE: You make 15 arrows at a time! Bronze will only yield you 39.5 xp, not 39.5 x 15.

Materials needed to repair arrows:
- Broken arrow (found by searching crates or boxes, stolen from H.A.M. guards, Fishing Trawler mini-game, Ava's accumulator/attractor, at the Digsite, south of Yanille, or the Ranging Guild)
- Repair bench, whetstone or armour stand (15 Construction and up) in your Player Owned House.
Use a Broken arrow on the repair equipment, you will either permanently destroy it or receive a random new arrow. 8 Fletching experience is earned per successfully repaired arrow.
Materials needed to make ogre arrows:
- Achey tree logs
- Wolf bones and Chisel (For Ogre arrow) or Hammer and Nails (for Brutal Arrows - also see the Smithing guide)
You must have completed the Big Chompy Bird Hunting quest to make Ogre arrows. To do this, follow the instructions below:
- Cut some logs from the Achey Trees in the Feldip Hills.
- Use a Knife on them to make Ogre arrow shafts (yield varies, from 2 to 6).
- Add Feathers to make Flighted ogre arrows (at least 4 Feathers per arrow).
- Finally, kill some Wolves (any kind) and use a Chisel with their bones to get Wolfbone arrowtips. Making Wolfbone arrowtips earns 2.5 xp each, though the yield varies from 2 to 6, the xp each is constant.
- Add the Wolfbone arrowtips to the Flighted ogre arrows to make Ogre Arrows.
After the Zogre Flesh Eaters quest, you can make Comp ogre bows and Brutal arrows. The Comp ogre bow is made by using a Knife on an Achey tree log while carrying Wolf bones. To make Brutal arrows, use the desired type of nails on a Flighted ogre arrow while having a Hammer in your inventory or on your toolbelt. (Black nails may be found in coffins or as a drop from Zogres. Comp ogre bows and Brutal arrows may also be purchased from Uglug Nor after you've sold him one Relicym's balm (4) as described in the Zogre Flesh Eathers quest guide.) These can be used to hunt Chompy birds or for everyday Ranged combat.
