Bows and Arrows

Recommended Posts

In the first season, the equipment was supplied by Martin Archery (their name appears in the end credits of each episode). You can see Luke using a Martin Cougar in the opening scene of 'Daisy's Song' (below). If I remember correctly, Bo's bow was a Martin Warthog.

Luke's is a Martin Cougar II
Bo's is a Martin Warthog
arrows were also supplied by Martin. 
Martin supplied bows throughout the series and they change a bit through the years. 
I can't seem to find my link, but somewhere on line the guy from Martin talks about getting the bows put together at the last minute for the TV show (short notice) , you won't find a warthog or a cougar II with the writing like that on the limbs, it was literally added with K-mart mailbox lettering on the way to bring them to filming to get the Martin name on there for the show.
