How To Carve A Survival Bow


Want a tipi like this? Please visit http://www.jurtenland.de/


In this episode I am building a survival bow with a knife. The stave is harvested from fresh green hazelnut wood. It is quite soft and bends well. I cut away too much wood of one of the limbs at the very beginnning so I had to cut off the limb, turn it around and glue the bow together again. The bow had around 30 pounds draw weight at first but it gradually lost strength with every shot and at the end of the video it maybe only had 15 pounds. But that doesnt matter because if you unstring the bow and shoot it the next day, it gets stronger again. I am very proud of this bow. It is a quick solution for hunting in a survival situation and can definetly take down small game like squirrels or hare.
