Are Gemsbok horns that have been made into Shofars suitable for bow use? Would it be offending the Jewish folks to do so? I don't have any immediate plans but if I was to trip over one it would be nice to know if i should pick it up :)

I dont know but those might be polished and chemically processed I personaly wouldn't  take the chance with any thing but raw horns , you can find nice Gemsbok horns on the big auction site but need to be selective thickness , length etc
If you fear failure you will never Try !

DC...Most times those are reduced from polishing so much they are unuseable for bow work.
