Ahhh, The Osage Orange Hunter. Named after the amber color of the aged osage-orange wood (Maclura Pomifera). This is the bow to have if you are a serious primitive hunter or archer that is used to the creature comforts of more modern traditional bows. The Orange Hunter features a contoured handle with an arrow shelf, your choice of  tip overlays, a great tiller shape and a dacron string complete with fur silencers. The tips are reflexed gently to make a smoother drawing, faster shooting bow. This is the “traditional archer’s” selfbow.
          Osage orange (Maclura Pomifera) is considered by most the be “THE BEST” selfbow wood available. it hits hard, its resistant to string follow.   Osage orange is the way to go if your looking for a serious selfbow. There is a reason the most commonly shot selfbow is made of Osage… enough said! As with all selfbows, These bows are made out of only fully cured staves, not milled lumber. Each bow has its own unique characteristics and it is common for selfbows to carry small knots and slight twists. No two are exactly alike!

            NOTE: Draw length is extremely important for the safety of you and your bow.
