How to attach a socket spear to it's shaft

From 3 Rivers Archery, a socketed spear tip. Had one before and sold it.

How can I attache this to a wood pole.

How can I make sure it stays on?

It just has a tapered socket, no holes on the sides.

I reckon some epoxy would do the trick nicely.

Shape your pole to as close a fit as you can and be very liberal with the resin.
A rivet, surely?
I drilled a hole in the socket by the opening and after I had it fitted to the shaft a short wood screw through the hole (Epoxy in the screw hole to keep it from loosening)
