It is easy to break a bow. Simply shoot it without an arrow in place. I had the upper limb of my bow shatter violently when the nock of the arrow split when I released the string. I can see the same happening to Nephi! BTW, wooden bows of over 100 pounds draw were used in war, famously in Henry V's victory at Agincourt. They could pierce the armor of the day.
As my friends and I watched the broken bow video, we wondered together how he could make a new one (out of wood??) that would be strong enough to kill a large animal??
