    I have shot some trees with carbon arrows by accident but so far none of the lodgepole pines shattered. Sorry boys bad joke...

    I have hit a couple of trees. On all them I was able to turn the arrow out of the broadhead and save the arrow. I can then get the broadhead out and just replace the blades.

    The only carbon arrows i've seen actually shatter were the cheapest you can possibly buy from bass pro. other than those, i've never had any shatter, and i've hit a lot of trees!!!

    i shot at a turkey last season, and lost one of my arrows, i found it stuck in a tree 3 months later, the arrow was fine.

    Yes if it hits hard enough, and it depends on how hard the tree is.

    Not in my experience, but the broadhead is usually trash.

    Although it shouldn't shatter when hitting the tree... it might break when you try to pull it out. Either way, i think it has a lot to do with luck and or chance... sometimes you'll get lucky and it wont shatter, and sometimes you'll hit a dead tree which is easy to retrieve an arrow from or viser versa.

    sometimes. I've had them shatter and I've also spent the time to carve them out and after careful inspection found them to be in perfect shape and reshot them. Also had one explode when I didn't catch a cracked nock, very exciting. Key is to carefully check bolt after each shot.
