    Some good useful information here. Bows have their place in the scheme of things for hunting and personal protection. Being able to make your own bow is a useful skill. Thanks for posting.

    Great files. I recently got some books on making PVC pipe bows (flattening them and then bending them). I'm going to work on the techniques, and then try to design something like a Scythian horse bow. I'll let everyone know, but it's likely to take 6 months or so. I take the slow but sure method of learning new hand skills.

    Been trying for the past few months to make a bow for my son. This is going to be very helpful. Thanks

    Bud from the NC mts makes his own. Last two had 55 and 57 #s of pull. More than enough to bring down a deer/etc. At close range a broadhead has more power than a 30-06.
