A smaller but adequate bow for hunting and self-defence.
Shortbows are considerably more effective than primitive bows, but their effective range is much lower. Sneaking up to within 6-8 tiles of target will give you the best chance of hitting your target with a good leg shot, making the ensuing chase much easier.
One of two bows that can be crafted by the player character.
URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes the shortbow thusly:
Any bow less than four feet high. They are most common among tribesmen and are made from bone, metal, or composite hardwoods, and are often recurved.
