Step 2: The Bow

The Bow is made out of a few parts. It is comprised of the "arms" or "limbs", depending on who you're asking but i will refer to them as the "Bow limbs", the Handle, and the Bow String.

The "Bow Limbs" are traditionally made of wood. This wood could be of almost any type of wood. It could: Pine, White Oak, Red Oak, Yew, Willow, Maple, Teak, etc. it can also be made out of any combination of wood. Other things the limbs can be made of are fiberglass, horn, and in modern times, even different metals.

The Handle of the bow is very simple. Basically it's a small part of the bow that is less flexible, purposefully thicker than the rest of the bow. Finally, the handle is made as a place for an arch, or person who practices archery, to hold onto the bow.

The bow string is one of the most important things in Archery in my OPINION. Yes opinion. The bow string basically lets you transfer the elasticity of the bent limbs to the rear of your arrow to propel the arrow forward. Bow string was traditionally made from sinew, which is dried tendons normally from deer.
<p>I have a skill in making bows. its possible that a bow can be very fascinating. I think they have a role as a weapon. </p>
You need to do a little more research...
<p>what do u mean by that i am need ing some info about archery could you help me because i have a science fair project coming up</p>
7.) Camouflaged Clothes <br> <br>while these types of attire are trendy they do not offer any hunting benefits <br> <br>You are obviously not aware that animals can see anyone wearing Camouflaged Clothes as most animals are colour blind or have a different visual spectrum than humans <br> <br>Most animals cannot see bright flourecsent colours, but other humans can, which makes the human safe from all forms of shooting accidents <br> <br>A little commonsense shows that purchasing and using flourecsent clothing for hunting in the field is cheaper and safer. <br> <br>We all know how trendy Mossy Oak and Jack Pike clothing is, but its no good for anything else.. <br> <br>
if you are wearing camp you would appear the same. color as the woods your hunting in a deer's vision. if your wearing a flourecent color you could be a big white dot in the deer's vision. there is a reason for camo. by law you are supposed to wear blaze orange during rifle season while hunting.
I'd just like to say this is only a small tidbit of information and if you'd be more specific as to in what area I need to do more research, that would be great. If you'd also read through the comments you'd see that I have actually responded to people on issues they had with this. If you can't tell me where to do more research then I won't. There's quite a bit to research and this was just for the basics. Have a good day. :D
<p>99% of people cant do this because common sense is so rare its a super power.... XD a good amount of people have it but most don't.</p>
you en lightened me man <br>
two things. <br>one bows, maybe add pictures of more modern bows, and maybe even a comparison of double to single cams and whatnot. <br>two crossbows, crossbows are not part of archery, and are actually considered firearms in most regions. <br>other than that, it was very informational. 4 out of 5 stars.
I've got to be honest, 1, I made this a few years ago when i was younger and now i would agree with you on the crossbow. Secondly, The main reason I really didn't go into compound bows is for one, I could just keep talking about it all day unless u went with extreme basics on the compound bow. And finally the other part of why I didn't talk about the compound bows is that I don't use them, I prefer recurve and long bows and so don't fire and use compound bows enough to justify talking about them. I don't believe I am experienced enough and while I did not really give much info on each type of bow, If someone asked me question on the things within this that I discussed, I'd feel comfortable talking to them about their questions. <br> <br>Don't get me wrong when i say I am inexperienced, I actually know how to build a, perhaps simple, compound bow, but if i build one normally it works very well. <br> <br>Basically though, I try not to post about things that I'm not experienced with so that I don't confuse people because I'm here to try to teach, not keep people ignorant, which is why I post in the comments and reply to people when they comment on my projects/Instructables. <br> <br>Thank you for your feedback though. :D
Oh yeah there are a whole bunch of different bows flat bows ,longbows ,recurve ,compound.
