The only reason you would want to wax an arrow shaft is when shooting 3-D targets, and then you'd only wax the first 6-8 inches. Waxing the shaft (or using soap) allows the arrow to be pulled easier from the target - especially when the target starts getting old and the foam rubber starts to harden up.There is no use for waxed shafts in a hunting situation. In fact I would think it would be detrimental - looking at the sign left on the shaft is an indication of where the hit occured (bright red, dark red, foamy or green in the case of a gut shot), and wheather you should wait before looking for a hit animal.
If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
