Traditional Bowyer’s Handbook: How to Build Wooden Bows and Arrows Product Review

As you can guess from the title, this book focuses less on the game itself, but on the actual bows and arrows.

This guidebook will delve into the realm of natural bow building, combining three decades of first-hand knowledge and experience from an avid bowman – Clay Hayes. If you’re thinking about building your own bow, modifying a bow, or are just interested in the design, you can learn it all from this book.

In this book, Clay Hayes writes about many different types of wood, and how to shape the different woods into strong and fast bows.

It’s super easy to understand. Even if you’ve never picked up a bow before, this book has enough detail for you to create your own bow from scratch. Each section is well labeled, so you can just flick to the area you need and get the information ready to reference.
