Comox Valley archer builds a Bunyanesque bow and arrow

In the fall of 2009 I was sitting on the veranda outside the Old Archers Cabin at the Courtenay District Fish and Game archery range wondering who would have built the extremely large arrow sitting by the side of the range.
I got to wondering how big a bow would have to be to shoot that arrow. After measuring the arrow, I determined that a bow approximately 70 feet long should do the trick.
