Just let ’em try to take my bow away

I am a big fan of the bow and arrow for many reasons. Anyone who has an interest in primitive survival skills or modern urban survival should seriously consider purchasing a good bow and arrow and become proficient in using it.

There are hundreds of bows to choose from. I prefer a take-down recurve bow. Below are six reasons why I think you should consider owning a survival take-down bow.

1. Portability

“Take down” means that the bow comes apart in three pieces: the middle grip section and the two limbs. It is very simple to “take down.” The twist of a couple lug screws breaks it down into three very packable sections. The fact that it comes apart makes it very portable. You can easily stash the bow in a canoe, a motorcycle or a Bug Out Bag. It’s perfect for a Bug Out Vehicle or BOL (Bug Out Location) cache. And it weighs very little. My bow weighs only a couple of pounds. Lightweight take-down arrows are also available. These arrows screw apart into three pieces, making your entire set of bow and arrows under 18 inches in length.
