Learn to craft your own bow out of locally harvested materials. We cover how to hew wood with simple blades and knives for wilderness survival and more.
Our bow making basics course helps you develop the art of tillering. Tillering is crafting the bow stave down to the symmetrical bend of a bow. Tillering is where you and the wood decide how fast and far your tool and weapon launches arrows.
We also train with expert instructors at our indoor range to develop the basics of form and focus in archery. You experience a variety of bows such as laminate, take down and traditional longbow.
This is not a class where we use power tools to fashion the perfect bow out of the perfect stave split from exotic trees. This is a practical course with practical blade tools that you may likely possess in a wilderness living situation. We begin with a branch size stave of locally harvested wood. Our focus is learning to craft bows that can be useful in a true outdoor survival setting. Through this you build the foundations necessary to cultivate a true understanding of advanced bow making techniques.
