Primitive Technology: Sling

Primitive Technology: Sling


Fast growing tree with fibrous bark Fibrous bark evident Stripping bark from stem Stripping fibrous inner bark from rough outer bark Stripping inner bark into thin strips To make cordage twist each individual strand clock wise and the both strands around each other anti clockwise When one strand runs out add more fibers into it like this, they wont come undone and will hold fast To form the pouch tie knots like this Tie a fiber strand onto one end of the pouch Weave the strand in and out of the pouch area to fill it out Pouch completed Tie a loop in the end for one finger like this And a knot in the other end to hold and let go of when shooting Rough dimension of sling Place a rock in the pouch Swing sling and let go, timing the release of the sling so the rock shoots forward Old pot for target practice First try, more luck than skill Sling
