Step 1: Materials

You will need:

-PVC pipe

-Some paracord

-A saw

Step 2: Making the Body of the Bow

Measure the PVC pipe from the ground to your chest and cut it. then use your saw to cut two grooves each about an inch away from the ends of the PVC pipe.

Step 3: Stringing the Bow

Take your paracord and a make a loop. Cut the rope to about 4 inches shorter than the pipe and make a loop on the other end. String the bow by placing one loop in the first groove, place the bow behind your right leg, bend the pipe with your right hand while having the other loop in your left hand and place the other loop in the second groove. For more info see video.

Step 4: Finishing Touch

Get a tooth brush, cut the brush part and glue it in the center of your PVC pipe. Glue some scope on the other side of the pipe(in the center). To learn how to make a scope "selfmade" has a good tut on youtube. Enjoy your bow.
