    I don't know if you would use a bolt for an arrow or that it would be long enough to be able to really pull back on a bow, 22" doesn't go very far on a regular bow but its huge on a crossbow. I would definitely say crossbow bolt if it measures less than 22"...

    On the other hand, the 'nock' is replaceable and especially if you want something with more visibility. This nock may be lighted which may be the reason it is not your normal bolt nock, or maybe the person had an issue with the bolts falling out of the crossbow and wanted a nock that would hold better. I've had bolts fall out of my crossbow, while walking through the woods and hitting against hanging foliage.

    But identifying the bolt or arrow, is just for kicks and giggles, it won't tell why it was there or who it belongs to.

    Just glad it is off the beach and no little toes had to come into contact with it. I've pulled so much broken glass from my local beaches, its definitely a hazard to anyone thinking the beach is barefoot friendly, of all the places...

    Definitely a good job, Hawks88, those razors would open up or cut off anything that came into contact with them. I've cut myself playing with mine, they are no joke...

    20 inch is about standard for crossbow.
    Bolts are arrows. Albeit seldom interchangable after set up.
    Halfmoon nocks and flat nocks are common.
    Ravin brand is making a "clip on" nock that is different than the standard vertical bow nock in o.p.'s pic..Roughly a third the gap height and a more robust design.

    My crossbow arrows run 20 inch and 350 grains ,without heads attached.

    Glad that mechanical broadhead is off the beach...

    Hawk, what is the length of the arrow shaft (less broadhead)?

    Not sure where the crossbow bolt idea came from, but it sure looks
    like a near full-length shaft plus a mechanical broadhead.

    It is a not-so-cheap carbon shaft: https://www.amazon.com/Gold-Tip-Hunt...dp/B00RGBGTEM/

    I left the mechanical archery world back in 1988, and since then
    have enjoyed the heck out of a few different longbows and recurves.
    Never shot one of those carbon shafts, but I do shoot Port Orford Cedar
    shafts.

    Yea, its hard to tell a measurement from a picture like that. The more I look at it, the longer it gets, lol...
