I'm a primitive hunter (obviously) and I like to make my own hunting gear. I recently bought a CS 5' magnum blowgun and decided to make my own darts for it. I mainly use steel so far for broadheads, but I started to wonder how flint would work for a blow dart broadhead. So I made one and it's been very effective against small game? Has anyone else tried this or something like this?

I use nails with "grocery bag" brown paper cones. I use a sharp chisel to make barbs on the nails, all up and down, they go in easy, but are hard to pull out.

That didn't look like a flint stone... Was it?

 

If not that would be something that I would work at to perfect but that

Stonehead looks amazing. Can you show a quiver full of them?

 

Keep up the amazing work though.

The VERY STRONG opposition to Sunday Hunting by the Pa Farm Bureau is urging its members to contact the senators, dont you think you should be doing your part as well
