The Bow of the Hunt is a unique hunting bow found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The bow is located on the altar at the back of Clearspring Tarn, within a cave near the location.


The bow bears an enchantment that inflicts 20 points of extra damage to animals.


Unlike the regular hunting bow, which only requires a single leather strip at a grindstone, the Bow of the Hunt can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone, and benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • Another weapon that can be disenchanted with a similar effect is the Poacher's Axe, which wields the enchantment "Huntsman's Prowess."
  • Unlike most enchanted weapons, the Bow of the Hunt does not "glow" the color of its enchantment.
