"The Koroks made the bow for Hylians. It's crafted from flexible wood and uses sturdy vines for the bowstring. Its construction may be simple, but it fires multiple arrows at once."
Hyrule Compendium

The Forest Dweller's Bow is an item in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a wooden multi-fire Bow made by Koroks for Hylians which Link can use to fire a triple-shot arrow burst though only costs a single arrow of ammo. It has a base attack of 15 and its durability is even stronger than the Dragonbone Boko Bow, though the strongest Bokoblin made bow has higher base attack, though the multi-fire feature of the Forest Dweller's Bow makes up for this. However like all wooden bows it will burn if exposed to a source of fire or volcanic heat.

On Kincean Island in Lanayru Wetlands there is a Weak Wall which Link can destroy to reveal a hidden cave contain a Korok flower puzzle. On the ground inside the cave a Forest Dweller's Bow spawns which Link can equip. Due to the island's location, it may be one of the first Forest Dweller's Bows Link finds and potentially one of the first multi-fire bows Link can obtain. Another Forest Dweller's Bow will occasionally respawn in the cave if Link leaves the region and returns later, making it a good place to acquire extras or replacements. Another one can be found in a Treasure Chest in Mogg Latan Shrine.

Link can take its picture with the Camera Rune to add its entry to the Hyrule Compendium where it appears as entry number 325 in the Compendium's equipment section. The Forest Dweller's Bow can be found commonly in the Hyrule Ridge and Tabantha Frontier regions according to its entry's common locations section.

Related Side Quest

One is granting by Chio when Link accepts "The Korok Trials" Side Quest and takes on "The Test of Wood" Shrine Quest at the Korok Forest in the Great Hyrule Forest region. During this shrine quest, Link must complete the trial and reach the shrine with the Forest Dweller's Bow, Forest Dweller's Shield, and Forest Dweller's Shield intact (they must not burn or break or Link will fail the trial and he is only allowed to use them during the trial). Link can take on the trial again as a mini-game after completing it through he is unable to keep any of the "Forest Dweller" equipment as Damia will take them back after the trial mini-game.
