Introduction: PVC Hunting Longbow (Updated)

About: Hello, do you like to shock, destroy, animate,play Minecraft, write code, learn simple life hacks or just have fun? Well you found the right place!

Want to make a $10 hunting bow?
That has 65 lbs draw? And a cheap way to hunt, But dont know what to use? Well you are in the right place!

Step 1: First You Will Need Some Paracord and Some PVC Pipe.

Ok so here is the parts you need

A one inch PVC pipe.



Drill and bit.

Duct tape (optional)

plastic Hanger (optional)

Step 2: Drill Two Holes.

Drill two holes on both ends of the pvc pipe.

Or with sidecutters you can cut it.

Dont complain like some dweebs and say it looks like there is another pipe in that one.

i experimented with it and cut and hammerd a 3/4 in pvc pipe in the ends 1 in pipe so the ends wont snap in serious tension. you can do the same if you want.

Step 3: Add the Paracord.

tie two loops in the ends of the paracord.

Using your foot, carefully bend the pvc pipe and put the paracord on the two ends.

You will need to adjust the string length until there is a good enough bend into it to pull back, let go, and not have it hit your hand.

Step 4: Tweeking

Dont stop now! The sky is the limit!

    Sorry but this is a terrible instructable. The instructions don't appear to be complete at all. From your images it looks as though you have a smaller diameter pvc tube inside a larger one. Why not just post the complete instructions?

    Good! I was thinking about making a crossbow with a pvc pipe, but I think fiberglass would be better

    Yeah, you could definitely make a better bow out of fiberglass, but you can't buy 10 feet of fiberglass pipe for $4 at home depot.

    Even if you could, a fiberglass pipe probably wouldn't make a great bow.

    fiberglassing is very dangerous though you have to remember that, thanks for commenting.
