Deveation from arrow to arrow makes a difference is when distance is increased.
The size of feathering plays a factor at distance.
Beyond that, form and proper relese are what control proper flight. It does not take much freather to keep the end of the arrow right, but more feather will compensate for poor relese and also slow the arrow.
Thin feathering will result in a fast arrow, and I am of the mind that the increase in speed, allows more air to travel across the scant fletching in a given time and thus still effectivly keeps the nock in the rear.
Shorter didsatance shots can use a heavy fletch, but drain too much energy from the arrow over 30 yards. When it comes to using real feathers, which can be derived from any species or feather, uniformity or circular balance and the feathers rigidity are important .... but not tooo important. The natural feather fold and is far more flexible than turkey; particularly in the stuffed quiver.
My sugestion is to air on the thin and long flech (say the bottom arrow for example, as opposed to a fletch like the middle. Though more fleching may be slower, when exausted/cold/sleepy/arms arrent warmed up - you may want a heaveir fether to compensate for a poor release.
Ultimatly, its the mind of the one casting the arrow that determines the lockation a tip will strike.
