The Ranger bow build

Crows Head was commissioned to design and build bows for an upcoming film project: The Rangers

Step One: Come up with an idea

  • This was the hardest step. Sure there are examples of ranger bows, but I wanted to capture something different and relate to the film concepts and background.
  • The Ranger film had a cool logo/artwork already designed and I wanted to incorporate that into the bow design somehow.

Step Two: Concept Drawing

  • I have never been accused of being a great artist, and my concept drawing is no different.
  • I wanted to show the leather wraps and artwork ideas

Step Three: Mockup

  • This was the easiest part – just build the bow
  • I took pictures along the way
  • The pictures tell the story
  • 64″ Hickory Longbow
  • Pictures of bow prior to wraps and artwork

  • This has been a great project so far and there will be more bows to come for this film in upcoming posts.
