Nephi made a bow out a wood. It had to have been a "long" bow, which is essentially a dry branch bent to accept a string. He had arrows from his steel bow. Why not use them?
Because a steel bow is much stiffer and has a short "draw", or shorter pull. Therefore the arrows would have been too short! He had to make a arrow long enough (For a longer pull) out of a "straight stick". Hmmm, was Joseph Smith an archer and knew about this stuff?
