This bow follows the measurements of the original in the Museum of Natural History, NY.  It was collected from the Hopi tribe in the American Southwest. It measures 50 inches long, and tapering down to 3/8th inches nocks.  Our replica here follows these dimensions, and was made in Serviceberry wood.  Following the bows width and thickness dimensions and tiller shape, yielded a bow of 32 lbs at 22 inches of draw.  This leads us to believe this was a small game bow and only pulled to the chest in a low level "snap shot" unlike our modern pull to the chin longbows. The weapon should still be considered dangerous and possibly lethal so customer is responsible for safe use of the weapon if tested.
