Before the Mongolians were a dominate nomadic tribe, there were the Scythians. This tribe wandered throughout the lands conquering people and controlling massive trade routes. They were known as being the first to master the art of mounted combat especially mounted archery. They were feared archers who would use their powerful, short range bows to wreak havoc on the battlefield! Designed for fast shooting in a compact size, the Scythian Bow was something to be feared!
Since the Scythians were known for their trade routes in the Asian and Eastern Iranian areas; it is very viable to think that the Mongols mimicked the design in their Mongolian bow. At Odinson Archery, we are glad to bring this bow back into light once again. Ideal for short range, this bow is designed for fast shooting from horseback or on foot. It’s unique design offers tremendous amounts of stored energy that will drive an arrow through the target with ease!
