Reach your hand slowly, not too fast, but slowly, toward the arrows; grasp the arrow(s) tightly, not to loose, and move your hand in the general direction of your face. If you feel pain followed by death, you have located the pointed end of the arrow, allowing you to flip it orient it correctly and store it [safely].

Nice and "helpful" replies here. It's a good question though. On 1.6.4 I could just walk to a shot arrow and it would go back into my inventory. Now on 1.7.2 they are stuck in the ground, nothing happens when I walk through them and they stay there for days. ONLY if I dig below the arrow and then up will it fall INTO me and going out of the ground. Its a major drag, we got arrows stuck all over my server.
I have a skeleton spawner which I AFK'd in. One of them must of seen me and fired, obviously hitting another skeleton. When I returned it was like the wild west meets laggy Mclagfest. After killing them all the framerates didn't improve due to 3500 arrows stuck in the stone. I removed a couple of thousand by breaking the blocks and then buryng them but over a thousand remain.
Please post a new topic next time, but this has already been reported several times and you revived a thread from 2011. I've found a couple ways to deal with the issue. One, if you place a few blocks around the area with the arrows stuck in it and wait like 20-30 seconds, this will occasionally get rid of them if you wait long enough. Otherwise you can go into creative mode (if its survival single player you can open lan with cheats enabled) and you should be able to pick up the arrows. This will work for infinity arrows shot by the player but I'm not sure about arrows shot by skeletons.
