    that bow wouldnt work well enuff for him to shoot himself in the pee hole. and if ne thing did come along hed scare it away because he cant help but say ok every 5 seconds

    He says ‘OK’ 11 times. OK ?


  4. I think that people believe if they wear “natural” colors that they automatically are outdoors-men/women.

  5. Fresh tree? Dude, what did it say to ya?

    they should acctualy be dead wood

  7. right….if i were him i would use a few more then 3 or find a stronger wood, its WAY to flexable and would only tickle and piss of any game you find

    I only hope you don’t think this is the only way to do a survival bow. I used to do this style, but now use just 1 sapling roughly 2 – 3 inches diameter & carve or split it. This style also can be done by using different lengths in saplings. All told I would say there are a half dozen ways with a thousand verities. Just an FYI note.

    Wood and vines, such as hickory bark streched out that works. The hickory tree has braches that make for good wood, too.

    1 random question

    How did people in the past make bows?

  15. WeaponsEnthusiast | March 8, 2010 at 2:59 am |


    Some sporting goods stores, too.

    If not those, the internet.

    i want him to do it to i wana make a bow the proper way

  19. I agree. If you can make a better one then do it. I’d be interesting in seeing how it’s done. On the other hand, it’s pretty shitty to shoot down this poor dweeb. He’s young, he’ll learn…

  20. Next.. we are gonna take.. K then K alrighty then we are going to K..

    Omg people.. Havent you never ever done bows? This guy is a noob. The tree must not be too flexerable. If its 2 much, it shoots only 9 meters. I can make a bow, that shoot like 50 meters.

  23. euroharrier | March 8, 2010 at 7:33 am |

    question? what trees have strong enough skin cos i made a longbow b4 but i used nylon (fishing wire). alternatives?

  24. usually trees like that u can peal the skin off and its actually great tinsel str i can lift my self up with most of it i weigh like 150 so thats really good and its really flexable to …
