Fire arrows are much less aerodynamic then normal arrows, and can not be shot at full draw due to the potential for the fire to damage the bow - you should expect a fire arrow to travel around 50% of the distance of a normal arrow. You should aim 30-50 degrees above your target as the arrow will rotate to nose down - typically hitting your target from above - You should also not fire these at full draw on a compound bow due to the risk of reverberation damage to the bow caused by the heavier arrow. We recommend you 'burn off' (spin it causing fuel to spray off - just like a staff) with your arrow before firing it to prevent a front-heavy arrow from nose-diving and to minimise fuel-spray on launch and minimise the fuel-spray over the target on impact.

Obviously you should ensure that the area behind and surrounding your target is not flammable, as a fully fuelled fire arrow sliding along the ground can create a trail of flaming grass up to 100m long. This is more then you can extinguish with even a large Fire Extinguisher.

WARNING: If you start a bushfire, or use this to burn down something you don't have permission to, you will probably end up in jail. You have been warned.
