Building a Survivalbow and Arrow


Bow used in this video: Composite Bow "Falcon 3" by Lajos Kassai.

Review and learning experience:

1. Bow: The limbs were a little bit too weak, next time I gonna attach one more limb to make the bow stronger stronger. Maybe birch is not the perfect material for a bow, cause it seems too springy.

2. Arrow: The arrow did a good job, especially the feathers astonished me, but the tip got loose after a couple of shots, so I have to tie the tip tighter to the shaft next time, and glue it in better. The shaft was too soft, with too little spine. The reason was that I used buckthorn for the arrow, which is growing straight but is just too soft.

All in all I was pretty happy with the bow :-)

Video Transcription

so having a bow in a survival situation may increase your chances of survival doesn't matter if you're backing out or if you are simply lost in the wilderness but the thing with bows is that you probably don't bring them with you so it might occur to you that you have to build one yourself out of natural materials and that's what I'm going to do today so stay with me okay so the row is finished and now I need a good arrow so I've found three straight shaft for the error and I think I'm gonna go with this one because this one is the straightest for the tape of the arrow are gonna use this piece of tin I'm going to fold it a couple of times and make a proper arrow tip out of it this black substance here is a mixture of pine resin charcoal and roe deer poo which is an excellent you and I gonna use this glue for doing in the tip into the arrow shaft now I need to get out some of this in Australians here from the paracord because I need to tie down the tip of the arrow

so now it's time to put on some fetters I gotta use this tape instead of petals because I don't have fattest available
