This eye-catching buffalo bow is made of American Osage backed with Bamboo. We heat-tempered the the bamboo for added strength and resiliency, as well as adding a stripe pattern to help break up your lines while out hunting. The handle has been wrapped with black leather accented with artificial sinew for a comfortable grip.

This bow is shelf-less and thus is considered ambidextrous, you will have to shoot off-hand. It measures 52" overall, 50" nock to nock (47" when strung), pulls 46# @ 17" and comes with a black endless loop string with black servings.

Included in this set are the 6 self-nocked arrows pictured. Measuring 17" from the valley of the nock to the back of the tip, these arrows are made of Port Orford Cedar in a 23/64" diameter. They have been stained to look like osage and have been fletched with 3 white and black tiger striped natural turkey feathers hand-wrapped with artificial sinew for a smooth transition from shaft to fletching. They are hand made to fit the draw length of this bow and come as a set with the bow to get you started.

Historically, a buffalo bow was generally for mounted archery or brush hunting. It has a very short draw since the rider/shooter would usually be within 10 yards of their target. The hunter would come right up beside a buffalo and shoot as they were running side by side. Thus you only needed a short draw, but it still had to be powerful enough to bring down the quarry.

Buffalo Bows are very fun to shoot. They are great for brush and small game hunting as well as mounted archery. The short yet powerful draw is great for when a full draw is either impossible or impractical. The short overall length of the bow adds to its maneuverability.


This listing is for the bow and 6 arrows pictured above .

An all-wood bow is unique and requires proper care. All of our bows have been sealed for durability, and come with a basic 6-month warranty under normal use from date of purchase. This is to help protect against natural defects in the wood. The arrows have been lovingly hand crafted from raw lumber to a beautiful finished product ready for use. We hand plane, straighten, and spine all shafts ourselves, so a few imperfections may be visible. Every bow will also come with instructions for proper care and storage. The bow and arrows will come shipped in a heavy-duty tube via USPS and will be insured for the price of the listing.

There are a few things you should know before buying any bow.

• Try before you buy - really important, try bows of different draw weights, bow lengths and manufacturers. You will find that some limbs will feel harder to draw than others. This will help you narrow down your preferred draw weight and inform you as to your draw length.

• Visit local shop – There are a number of archery and general sports shops, big and small, all around the country and all quality ones will give you the opportunity to try first and spend time with you. If possible take an experienced person with you when trying equipment out.

• When in doubt, ask. We are happy to answer any of your questions.
Draw length and draw weight are the two most important things to know when ordering archery equipment.

Draw length corresponds to the arm length of the person drawing
the bow. Industry standard is 28".

Draw weight corresponds to how heavy the bow pulls.

* For Bow Orders - The bow should not be too heavy to draw back comfortably, or too light that it doesn't offer a challenge. Body height does not matter when it comes to ordering a bow.

* For Arrow Orders - Please know the correct draw length and draw weight needed to match the bow the arrows will be used with. If the arrows are for display or cosplay only, and will not be shot, draw weight does not matter.
Buffalo bows are a high draw weight bow with a short draw length based off of Plains style bows. They are meant for a crouched shooting style, indicative of hiding behind brush.

They are not youth bows. The short draw length does not indicate them for use by children and should not be purchased as a kid's bow. The reason for this is because children have the tendency to draw the bow back as far as they can, and these bows are not meant for that. Overdrawing will cause a bow to break.

We do not recommend them for people under the age of 18 and/or those without proper understanding of how to use a buffalo bow. Giving a buffalo bow to a child voids any and all warranties.
Did you see an arrow set you love, or fall in love with a bow, but want it to match your character or personal style?

Can we change it to match your colors?

Of course!

The beauty of handmade is that we can customize to your personal colors. Feel free to message us, let us know what item you were looking at and what colors you'd like.

We will work with you to create your vision to the best of our abilities and within the realm of physics (Sorry folks, sometimes video game physics and real world physics just don't play well together)

Any changes to orders must be made prior to the custom order being purchased. At that point we start prepping everything as agreed upon. No changes can be made after the listing has been purchased
