Nothing is more iconic or essential to the woodland hunter than a trustworthy and powerful bow. It has been said that crafting a bow is a true labor of love, and each one is as unique as the person who makes it. Spend two days with craftsman and experimental archaeologist Kevin Brenner as you chop, carve, and whittle your very own bow from locally harvested Hickory.
Using traditional techniques and historically accurate patterns you will learn how to "find" the bow in the wood, properly balance a newly crafted bow, and make usable string from natural materials.
