Longbows

A  longbow is a type of bow that is very long typically close 6 feet.  A longbow is not significantly curved which allows the user to draw back to about the end of the jaw.  Its limbs are relatively narrow and with the draw string form a “D” shape.  These bows have been made from as many different woods as cultures that used the bows.  Historically they were made of wood, however, modern longbows may also be made from plastic and metal materials. We at Smokey River Bows prefer to make our Longbows from laminated wood.
