DAVE MEAD is not your standard “by the book” bowyer. Through experimentation, trial and error, and challenging what others have not, he developed high performance, highly efficient, fast, powerful, unique primitive bows out of bamboo. Dave approaches challenges from a very analytical perspective and makes bows which he can reproduce in multiples with great efficiency. His journey to “the perfect bow” began with a challenge to himself to build a lightweight bow (around 40 lbs) that could do the job of a 60+ pound bow…and do it better! His bows are in extremely high demand with hundreds being sold around the world. When Dave is not building or teaching, he enjoys spending time with his five young children and homesteading.
