Hello ive been looking into archery on and off for a while now and now I think im ready to really consider it.Ive decided that I want to make a board bow(long bow or flat bow) as I will be doing renaissance festival's competitions,target practice and hunting small game with it.It will be my first bow and I dont want it to be super fancy just look nice and work and shoot nicely and not be to pricey.Im going to make it out of red oak,hickory or maple & have a leather wrap and back it with wood glue and dry wall tape. Im considering just doing a board bow as they seem to be the easyest and cheapest to build and work well.Im not sure how long it should be? im a female who is 5 feet even and weight 85 pounds as far as mesurement go it 19 inches from the tip of my longest finger to the middle of my chest and 5 ft even from finger tip to finger tip.The only bow ive tryed is a youth bow a few years a go and was able to pull it all the way back with no problem and it felt to easy.
