Traditional Bows ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here naturalist John Rhyder tells us about the thinking processes behind the design of longbows and flatbows used by different cultures and communities throughout history. John also shows us how to work the tillering jig to check a bow is fit for purpose.

nice nice. It would be complete if you at least mention about Asiatic composite bows. Such as Korean or Turkish horse bows. They are also very interesting.

I prefer the round bow myself, don't see many like that.

if you could be so kind to send me the dimensions of the flatbow at the 1 minute mark it would mean the world to me. tx

It would appear the discovery of the Mary Rose bows was really important re how English long bows were made and used.

Really liked how you mentioned the difference between the longbow and the flatbow. Wished my American counterparts would start calling our "longbow" flatbows.

These are purely for DEER HUNTING, not just recreational target shooting.

A video about "traditional bows", with genuinely traditional bows?
A rare pleasure.

Long bows may be nostalgic, but far less efficient compared to Asiatic bows!
