One of the most Identifiable names in Native American archery are the Cherokee. Very similar to the Cherokee bows, these style of bows are modeled after a style of bow common throughout the Eastern and South Eastern regions of North America. A classic D shape, wider Diamond shaped nocks, more parallel designed limbs, and a simple braintain wrapped grip with no arrowshelf. It’s pretty much the quintessential primitive style of bow shot east of the Mississippi. Bows made by Ryan Gill are both very authentic in design, but also extremely reliable. We currently offer it in 2 options of Hickory and Osage wood, made from natural staves of wood, no laminations or lumber are ever used here at HuntPrimitive. These bows come with a dacron string twisted in a tradition cordage twist pattern, or with a more modern flemish style with fur silencers. With this style some natural deflex or string follow is normal and consistent.
