apparently you can practice by dry firing them, makes it easier than retrieving the one arrow all the time.

With the lack of natural bow building materials many of the Natives of the great north use antler or even driftwood with sinew cable backings for their bows. Necessity is the mother of invention.

There is nothing new in archery. It's all been done before.
