How about a wood, fiberglass or metal rod inside a 1/2" PVC tube?

when I was a kid, we use to pull branches off trees and use hay string. can't say they were too great, but if a 5 year old could diy in a field, sure somebody can come up with something pretty sturdy around the house.
Used green branches to make bows as kids. Paracord might make a nice string.
Here's a youtube video to make a PVC bow.

I wish they glued two piece of oak together with gorilla glue then they used a hand planer to smooth out the edges until it has the shape you want then cut out the notches and string
Sorry. A bit more to it than that.

A bow increases the range at which you can successfully hunt and put meat into the cook pot. However, the purpose of the bow is to deliver the arrow. The arrow does the job of bringing down the game. The bow is just the delivery device.
Thanks and Regards,

There is a you tube and a free amazon book on PVC bows. Not hard to make.
I'm not sure of the specifics I'm looking for more info but that is a good idea for PVC pipe who knows I might make different materials
