482 The Book of Woodcraft two long thongs of caribou rawhide. This extra piece is bound to the arms of the main bow by a somewhat loose rawhide wrapping. The string is three strips of rawhide, two of them loosely twisted together, the third tightly wrapped around both. Penobscot warbow. Omaha bow, bowcase and quiver. The bow is 5 feet 6^ inches long, and pulls not more than 25 pounds, perhaps only 20. It seemed to me a very slow bow. Yet the Chief told me it had killed many men and ani- mals. He had recently shot a two-year-old moose with it.
