The breath of death

Who else uses a blow gun to harvest small edibles? My go-to "weapon" (dang-I hate to use that word) for small edibles has been the sling shot for the longest time. It’s very effective and has provided me many a squirrel and rabbit dinner.

But some years ago I injured my leg and started using a staff when taking my walks through the woods. a couple of seasons ago I got the idea of using my blowgun as a staff. I simply slipped a cane end over the end of the barrel. I would put a few bludgeons in my bag and some broadhead tipped darts in the quiver. they work great on squirrels and rabbits.

i still use a slingshot. Recently purchased a pocket slingshot. I don’t ever see me not using a slingshot. I think the slingshot might even have a 5 or so yard effective range over the blow gun. But the blow gun is certainly effective. I like the bludgeon darts they put rabbits and squirrels down effectively. On anything larger I like the broadhead darts. I have taken a few raccoons with them, and the long bamboo darts have proven effective on frogs during the summer months, although I just prefer the gig for frogs, the gig is just easier, but the blow gun is at least effective!.

Mine is spring operated. It will smack the ever living shit out of a rabbit. Especially when I use the 22 barrel. That pellet hits like superman. Lol

Thats not a quite gun either.
