    Would a one inch change in arrow length change the point of impact?

    The change in weight by using a shorter arrow should affect trajectory.

      Yes it would but how much is hard to tell.

        Yes it could, it will change both the weight and the stiffness and increase speed slightly.

          Yes it will,ever so slightly.
          Test it, before going afield.

            Just a little. You should already have your arrow as short as possible to get the most speed and less flexibility of the shaft.

              It may a bit. I've shot varying sizes of arrows and still been accurate enough for playing in the range. The further you shoot the more pronounced the difference will be. I wouldn't worry about having a few arrows in your practice quiver that are a bit longer than others, just as long as you are confident with your hunting set-up at all distances.

                As buckhunter stated you should use as short an arrow as possible to begin with. The effect of a different arrow length will be dependent on the weight and stiffness of the shaft of the particular arrow and compounding as your distance from target increases.

                  It will change the ability of the fletching to stabilize the arrow in flight and also add or subtract weight. In turn these factors will affect flight, trajectory and accuracy. But not very much in most cases.
