Sudbury Long Bow Specs and Options

This is reproduction of an early contact period Hunting Bow based on an Artifact from the 1600's known famously as 'the Sudbury bow' from Sudbury Massachusettes.

It is unlike most early contact period long bows because of it's trapazoidal cross-sections on wide flat limbs, which take advantage of the superior tensile strength of hickory. It's very unique for a North American Hunting Bow.
