    This, to me, is what survival/bushcraft is all about. RESOURCFULNESS! I've made a few self bows and arrows from scratch. Used A couple of twisted squirell skins or twisted gut for strings etc. You can make a substantial weapon from scratch with an investment of 8-10 hours and a lot of elbow grease. About the limbs breaking...try your hand at tillering the limbs a very little at a time and you'll be pleased.
    Thanx for a good vid'.
