Hey i made a rocket launcher with some pipe and thouse lil co2 bottles. Im not goin to say how kuz there are lil one that use the board but i shot a tree at 100 yards and it bounced off and kept goin :smile:
I heard tell of a hunter that made exploding arrows, he was a good looking intelligent type that quit after he remembered that it is against the law to do that, but it sure packed a whalup when it hit.
i have a cousin whose kind of the mad scientist in the family he's made a lot of crazy shit, but the coolest thing he made was a replica of a howitzer cannon from WW2, he made it out of pvc piping and the recoil is set on gears he got from a broken atm (he's a repair man) it shoots potatoes mainly but you can put a cork in the barrel and load whatever you want in it, sometime we take it to the beach when we go surf fishing, we put the cork in the barrel then put the rig in after it, BAM! right over the breakers and no casting involved!
made a 2 inch spud launcher, using pvc pipe-4x2 reducer-4 in. plug-propane bbq grill ingiter and some of the wife's hair spray. will launch a 2 in. potato for 50 yds. good for keeping the stray dogs at bay.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
