    If you can’t buy the bows from the Natives in the Port – then you have to loot them from the Natives you kill while doing the Mysterious Plants Quest

    If you talk to the Natives in the Port without the required skills – they will get angry and start following you around the Port

    You can kill the Armed Natives in the Port to get their Bow – if you attack an unarmed one the Town Guard soldiers will attack you. (unarmed ones have a bow but no Arrows or Tomahawk – so don’t fight)
