A bow is one of the oldest and coolest natural tools that humans have ever created! In this class we will teach you how to craft a quick and powerful bow using local Ashe Juniper or “Cedar” using nothing but a good quality outdoor knife and a hatchet. In just a matter of hours you will take a raw freshly cut sapling and turn it into an arrow shooting machine. We hope you join us at this super fun and informative class.
The class will cover:
Proper selection and harvesting Ash Juniper staves
New methods for getting the most out of your camp knife
Stave reduction and basic bow tillering
Methods for stringing your new bow
Basic instinctive archery shooting techniques
