In this episode I am building a survival bow with a knife. The stave is harvested from fresh green hazelnut wood. It is quite soft and bends well. I cut away too much wood of one of the limbs at the very beginnning so I had to cut off the limb, turn it around and glue the bow together again. The bow had around 30 pounds draw weight at first but it gradually lost strength with every shot and at the end of the video it maybe only had 15 pounds. But that doesnt matter because if you unstring the bow and shoot it the next day, it gets stronger again. I am very proud of this bow. It is a quick solution for hunting in a survival situation and can definetly take down small game like squirrels or hare.

Hello my name is Lilly and I am making videos about primitive living skills, survival, bushcraft, camping gear and prepping. I consider myself being a modern hunter-gatherer who wants to live as close as possible with mother nature and right now I am in the process of learning how to live off the land and thrive in the wilderness. Thanks for watching ~ Survival Lilly

    with teens. A skill that would be useful both in a survival situation and
    for someone wanting to make their own tools/weapons.
