Modern crossbows fire arrows, not bolts.

Here's what Wikipedia said on this subject:
Bolts do not have fletching, i.e. feathered ends like those commonly seen on arrows.

Most modern crossbows are designed to shoot arrows instead of bolts. Crossbow arrows are of similar construction as ordinary bow arrows, just shorter in length because of reduced power stroke.

Oh, wow! I had no idea!

Honestly I thought there was more too it than just the fletching though.
