I love bows as much as the next guy, but you don't want to build your play style around a single weapon type. However, if you're really sure about pursuing this, make sure you have a /Hit unit to make up for Beasts' massive ATA deficit. You would not believe how much a Tero/Hit helps when trying to hit enemies with any weapon, especially one using a PA with less than 80% accuracy.
Also, you should always carry at least one melee weapon. You've got 6 palette slots and I doubt you'll need more than 4 bows for a single run. I'd go for knuckles or a spear, though a good saber wouldn't hurt either.
So yeah. Is making a Beast Bowtranser possible? Yes, and I've seen people pull it off quite nicely. Is it fun to play? Only if you like hours of boring gameplay and median neuropathy (carpal tunnel syndrome).
