What indigenous woods can be used to make bows? I think it would be great if we can make bows from wood that naturally grows here.

heard guys making bows from white stinkwood
but the best you'll find, although not indigenous, is mulberry.
apparently it is a close relative of orange osage which is regarded as one of the best bow woods in the world.
