|Examine||A nice sturdy bow made out of maple.|
The Maple shieldbow is a shieldbow stronger than the willow shieldbow and can use arrows up to mithril. It is the third strongest shieldbow available to non-members, behind its own sighted version. The maple shieldbow requires a Ranged level of 30 or higher to wield (45 sighted). Players can purchase this bow from Lowe's Archery Emporium in Varrock. The maple shieldbow is slower than the maple shortbow, but shoots from a longer distance, which can be useful for snagging players who run and is useful for hit-and-run tactics because of its long range.
At level 45 Dungeoneering and with 10,000 tokens, a longbow sight can be attached, creating a Maple shieldbow (sighted), boosting the bow's Damage, Accuracy, Armour, and Life bonuses to those of a level 45 item.
Members can make a maple shieldbow through the Fletching skill at level 55. First, a player must cut an unstrung maple shieldbow from maple logs, granting 58.3 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung maple shieldbow with a bow string, granting 58.3 experience.
Like all shieldbows and unlike most other weapons, it incorporates a shield inseparably despite nothing that remotely resembles a shield is involved in its creation. Therefore, it provides armour and life point bonuses, and counts as a shield for Defence abilities, such as Rejuvenate. The attack range of the maple shieldbow is 8 spaces.

This item can also be bought or sold at:
- This bow was originally members only item. This was changed by Jagex when they believed that the free to play rangers were not as strong as the other two combat classes.
- If you use a Bow string on a Maple longbow where you can't make fires, you get the message "You cannot light a fire here." as if you were trying to light logs. Any other time, you get the "Nothing interesting happens." message.
