I am wondering how you all keep your feathers. I have developed quite the supply over the last couple years. Now they are in a box still in their packaging. When I am ready to buy arrows, I have to dig through the box and find what I am looking for. What a pain in the butt.

I want some way of organizing them so I can make it easier to find what I am looking for. I was hoping some of you can shed some light on this for me. Maybe a photo or two if you have some???

Thanks guys and gals.

I store my feathers in small plastic boxes.   I've always read to refridgerate them, but these have worked fine for me. I like them better than bags.


Tip:
 I keep both colors of feathers to repair previously fletched arrows in one box .

I keep my supply in plastic boxes. I separate by wing and shape. I also threw a few moth balls in the drawer where the boxes are.

Mine are in a plastic boot box ( big shoe box). Some of the feathers are probably 15 years old. One of these days I will have my choices narrowed down to 3 or 4 colors, one shape and length. The ones I have for longer storage I dusted with borax. Doesn't stink like moth balls and does the same job.

Large plastic jugs (licorice) with twist on lids for die cuts, or plastic boxes for full length feathers and a few moth balls. If you save them from a bird, you should wash with water and dawn, dry, then seal in an air tight bag, or contrainer and put in the refrigerator for week.

What does putting them in the refrigerator do?
