Yew shortbow detail.png

The yew shortbow is a shortbow stronger than the maple shortbow. Yew shortbows require a Ranged level of 40 or higher for the player to wield it. The attack range of the yew shortbow is 7 spaces.

Players can make a yew shortbow through the Fletching skill at level 65. First, a player must cut an unstrung yew shortbow (u) from yew logs, granting 67.5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung yew shortbow with a bowstring, granting another 67.5 experience.
