Nope, me neither- some of those poisons are reported to be really "nasty".
Very cool, thanks for posting! I see a lot of similarities between those tools and the ones used by the San over on the other side of the continent. One of the biggest differences is size of course with the San bows and arrows being much smaller scale. Probably something more than parallel adaptation- so possibly an historical connection?? According to Capstick, the San liked to use fencing wire, hammered very thin, for their arrow points. But, they don't use fletching, as the group from Tanzania is shown using. But nonetheless, many subtle similarities in designs and techniques. Those Tanzanians were preparing an herbal poison, possibly alkaloid based. The San commonly use a poisonous subterranean larvae.
Pics of Central Kalahari San arrow point with rawhide below point for securing point to shaft and holding poison coating- very similar to design and method of the Tanzanian group in the video.
I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.
