what do you think?


I'd consider this, and at least one takedown arrow (with removable heads) for the Alone show, cause it's far handier to keep with you than a regular bow. I'd want "slip-on" rubber vanes on all the arrows, to combat the terrible levels of moisture there. Feathers would soon be worthless and they are far too easily ripped off of the shafts. The main reason I'd want the slingbow (or a bow) is so that I could use the modified Crunch multi-tool to swiftly convert 3 of the 4 fishing arrow heads (4 wire tines each) into 24 fishhooks. I'd take 8 treblehooks, and one regular hook (which i'd convert into a sewing needle) not the normal 25 regular hooks (which produce very little food)

The use of gillnets is forbidden in Canada, but the show's entrants get to use them, so they must be given the same sort of "subsistance permit" that the Innuit and Natives get. If that's the case, then they should be free to use small rafts, with shredded, roasted cambium as bait on the treblehook, to take ducks and gulls. A 3 lb drowning rock, tied about a foot from the hook, ends the ruckus in 1 second flat, and ends the suffering in 5 seconds. A hunk of paracord and some big rocks will assure that the raft stays in water that's plenty deep enough to insure that the drowning takes place.

this thing lets you also shoot pebbles, or baked clay balls at targets that aint worth the risk of damaging or losing an arrow.
