How to Make a PVC Bow for only $7!
I love bow hunting and love spending time with my kids. Bow hunting is a great family event, but with 7 kids, it can become costly.
This first video is great for kids and women. It is a 40 pound draw bow and make it perfect for kids. They really enjoy these and it makes a great family activity.
Here’s what you’re going to need:
- A few feet of 3/4″ PVC pipe
- 2 (5/16) inch fiberglass rods
- Duct tape
- Tile saw blade (with hacksaw, or not)
- Paracord (poly or nylon blend…nylon stretches less which is better for the bow string).
Once you have those supplies then you’ll want to watch this video which shows you the exact steps to creating your PVC bow.
Now a 40pound draw is great for fun and small framed people, but I needed more. I found this 70 pound design by the same guy! Its great and can totally drop a deer! These are so cheap and easy to make that everyone should consider having these made up and stored in case of long term disasters. And in the meantime, they are a great backyard family activity!
