Bowcraft is the skill in Ultima Online which basically determines how well someone can turn wood logs into boards and then create weapons like bows and crossbows from them, together with their ammunition. For the latter, feathers are needed as well. Once becoming a master fletcher, special bows can be made.

A bowcrafter must first select the wood he or she wishes to use and the decide on which item to make. To actually create the items, fletchers tools are needed. Note that Quivers can not be made with this skill. Instead Tailoring is needed.

Lumberjacking and Carpentry are great additional skills to get the needed resources.
