Never thought you could kill a big game animal with a blowgun but I guess you can.

Back in Jr High, there was a book in the library I read multiple times about a guy who used various implements to hunt with .... Blowguns was one of em ... I have a 4.5 ft one at home right now ... Ive killed chipmunks, sparrows and a few rabbits with it ... Cabelas has a large caliber Blowgun, the darts are very heavy duty ... looked pretty neat ... I may get it one of these days ... I got to be pretty accurate with mine, hitting a baseball at ten yds pretty regular ..

By whatever means, Tim Wells is a killing machine.

JTV - The book was called "A Sporting Chance" by Daniel Mannix. Our library had a copy too.... my parents wouldn't let me get a giant cane toad to catch sparrows though...

I did make several bolos with old lead pipe joints I found in the garage. Got pretty good with them. Wicked impact when the weights would wrap around a telephone pole.
