I got an Azoni blowgun when I was 12, Im 38 now, I still get that thing out and shoot it,, I love it..
I parents used to call me the blowgun warrior..

I have shot tons of birds, few mice thats about it.. nothing bigger..

I would sit for hours at a time in the winter inside my dads shed with wheat on the ground waiting for a snow bird, or any bird for that matter to hop in front of me..
I could shoot flys on the wall of the shed.. I hit a bunch.. gosh that was soo much fun..

I thought the application of poison to the dart that was to be used was an essential part of blowgun hunting. Indians in the Amazon use the poison of frogs to tip their arrows which enables them to bring down borial inhabitants of their rain forest. Of course one must be very careful with the darts and avoid an accidental stick of dire consequence.

I used to shoot turtles in the creek with one those flea market type blowguns, I would stand on a small hill above them and shoot at them, the darts with those lil beads would stick in there shell and they looked like they were swimming around with a CB anntenna on there back till they knocked it off

Default Blowgun

I never been blowgun hunting but I'm pretty dead on. I bought a normal one i guess you can say it is just a skinny long tube with a mouth piece. But i was watching the discovery channel and they were showing these guys blowgun hunting in the jungle and there blowguns looked awesome. They were made of wood probably 1.5 to 2 inch OD and it was perfectly cut in half and maybe a the center hole was like .825 to .950 the length was probably like 2.5 to 3 foot. i already bought my piece of wood im using to reconstruct that blowgun all i need is use a saw of some sort to split it and a cnc mill for the inner circle where the dart goes through.

How do you mill a 7/8 hole 3 feet deep? That is a gun drill op if I've ever seen one. What make/model of machine do you plan on using. Gonna have to have a long travel in Z. I'm just sayin.
