The HuntPrimitive Bow is the most down to earth yet serious primitive hunting bow as you are ever going to get. This is the closest thing to a stone-age built bow without having to pay for thousands of dollars of stone-tool labor. They are made from a single stave of seasoned Osage Orange, worked with hand tools, and finished out with a flake-scrape & antler burnished texture. The tips are painted in genuine red ochre primitive paint suspended in hide glue. The whole bow is sealed with a primitive mixture of bear grease, beeswax, and pine pitch. The handle has no shelf and is wrapped in genuine braintan deer hide, and the string is a genuine deer sinew bow string. When it comes to a truly primitive bow, The HuntPrimitive Bow is it. These are based off of the Cherokee inspired model but with a little more narrow tips, and the full stone age fit an finish with the sinew string, paint and handle wrap. A more modern version of this bow can be had in the Cherokee inspired model mentioned above.

It will not hurt the bow to get wet, but just like in early times, damage to the string and primitive paint can occur if subjected to excessively wet conditions. Do not hunt in the rain or leave lay on the wet ground. If it should begin to rain, unstring your bow, move it to a dry place and dry it off. The primitive water-resistant finish will protect the paint in most cases, but the string will soften and stretch is subjected to being soaked while under tension. So again it will not hurt the bow to get wet, just don’t leave it in soaked conditions. The sinew string and paint are considered wearable items and are not covered in the warranty. The paint is pretty tough but expect a little destressing over time which will only add to the primitive look of the bow. Sinew strings last a very long time but like any string, they are subject to wear over time. Bow lengths vary on the draw length selected. Longer draws require longer bows. The average lengths for a bow with a 28 inch draw is around 66″ long.
