Has anyone ever taken a loved one's cremated ashes and used an arrow to cast them over an area the loved one wanted them to.

If so, I have someone that would like to know if this would be possible and what would be the logistics.

Your serious answers would be appreciated.

I believe its illegal to spread human remains/ashes. Lots of people still do it every day and I wouldn't oppose it, for what that is worth.

It would probably need to be a token amount in order to launch it with an arrow. I don't know how you would go about it, but, like Pearl, I'd not object to it.

they ain't gonna fit in an arrow

Spread my Dad's ashes on the River in front of the house as per his wishes

Sure it can be done.... Carbon arrow shaft, place a nock in one end, fill the arrow with cremains then glue in a insert, probably wont need a point with the extra weight of the cremains.

I think what he wanted to do is somehow take the entire amount of ashes, I told him I didn't think it was possible to shoot an arrow with that kind of weight attached.

I believe its near a quart of ashes, how about several friends fire off several arrows simultaneously?

There are no laws prohibiting scattering ashes on private land. If it isn't yours, you should ask permission. On public land they want you to get permission from the entity presiding over that land...county, state, etc. Most folks don't bother asking and I don't know who would be opposed to it. Best to do as you feel is right and don't tell too many folks exactly where you did it.

I'm thinking if he wants to do this, use helium filled balloons and tether the ashes, when desired placement is achieved, pull the tether and let the ashes fall.

Thank you all for your responses.

Tether the balloons and pop them with arrows?

What could possibly go wrong?

What if an arrow is filled with ashes and shot to who knows where, and later is found by someone who wants to know what the heck is inside this arrow?

Terry -

So, if it were possible, you end up with a number of arrows filled with ashes laying in a field somewhere? Cremains meant for burial at sea are placed in a water soluble bag.

Just don't think you thought this one threw...

Viper out.

I'm thinking something like a bird point that would lose ashes as it flew, by either vacuum or wind current.

It would definitely take multiple arrows.

A few years ago, the older brothers I bought my camp from up in north central Pa asked me if they could spread their fathers ashes up there in his favorite spot. No question I said, he planted the seed there, that place is more his than it is mine.

Upon their demise, I've inscribed arrows with my thoughts and/or feelings towards folks special to me and go to an isolated place on the shore of a big lake, say a word or two, and launch them skyward. Just a respect thing for them, maybe an acceptance or closure thing for me. But funny thing, it's not the shooting or the arcing of the arrow that I recall or feel so much as it is its fall and entry into the water near the far shore.

Peace, my brothers.

Viper, this wasn't my idea, if you had read my first post, you'd have noticed that.

I said earlier that I didn't think this was a possibility for an arrow. I still think if he used a balloon to carry a container filled with the ashes, tied with something that when pulled would release the ashes, just saying.
