His bow seems to be described as 'unfinished' everywhere, so I wonder how they made a replica and fired it. How unfinished was it? And how much extra finishing did they do? The super-sized fletching could have given better accuracy, which, in a hunting bow, would have been more useful than distance, especially to a skilled tracker and hunter. The need for distance vs accuracy is a battle thing. If you have hundreds of archers firing at hundreds of targets in a group you don't need accuracy, but distance is very desirable.
