Question for the Technician:
Could you kindly furnish me with more information about how to make a bow and
arrow. What are the best materials to use and if possible if you could let me know where I can
find more litreature on this topic.
Technician's Answer:
If you are going to make them yourself, the materials are usually cedar for the arrows and maple for the bow. There are many other more specialized woods that some people prefer but they can be hard to get and quite expensive for some. We should shortly have some documents online for bow design and construction. In the meantime, you can check out companies like Black Widow bows or material in some libraries.
