"Blowgun" is the preferred nomenclature among the non-pantywaisted.

We did this all the time when I was a kid.  We called it Cow Tripping.

I used to hunt squirrels with a blowgun.  Best part was that because it was quiet and short-ranged, it opened up a whole bunch of areas that would have normally been off-limits for hunting due to safety reasons.  I used sharpened nails with paper cones taped on the back as darts.  Quite often, I'd end up nailing the squirrel to the tree, and had to use pliers to remove them.

The blowgun was a 6 foot aluminum tube my father had tapered on a lathe, with turned walnut mouth and muzzle pieces, and wrapped with cotton string that was glued on and then stained with some Birchwood-Casey gun stock stain, and then varnished.

It's still over at his house.  Maybe I should ask him if I can have it, since he hasn't used it in more than 30 years.

And yes, I did get the cow tipping/tripping joke.

Not very long ago I stopped in one of those "security" stores (the ones with all the cheap tasers and tacky stupid shiat) and they had blowguns.  I was rather puzzled.  Not exactly my idea of home security.

Might have been fun for squirrels when I was still hunting as a kid.  At least there might have been something left of them.

that reminds me of a story when I was at camp. I was in a rifle shooting class and someone asked the instructor what would happen if you shot a squirrel at point blank with a shotgun. I'll see if I can illustrate his response (instructor was 14-15, questioner was 8-10?)

"Well, the head would be here..."
/o
"The tail would be here..."
o\
"and all the *rest* of the shiat would be over here!"
\o/

ah, boy scouts....

You have to remember the type of person those stores tend to cater to.  There is likely a relatively large percentage of them that are "survivalists", and with practice blowguns are pretty good for hunting small game like squirrels, small birds,  etc., up to rabbit sized animals.

For larger stuff, you need to start thinking about poisoned darts.

A book I read as a kid as a decent chapter about hunting deer with a blowgun and curare-tipped darts.  It's called "A Sporting Chance: Unusual Methods of Hunting" by Daniel P. Mannix.

If you can find it, read it.  He hunts rabbits with a trained cheetah, badgers with terriers and rabbits with ferrets, and uses things like the aforementioned blowgun, boomerangs, crossbows, bolos, etc.

It's really a decent read if you can find it.

I'm challenged by the logistics of getting (multiple!) unconscious bovines into the back seat of a sedan. Did they have a winch? Were they merely sedated? How did this not break the car's frame and/or suspension?

I have poached eggs.  And I've even poached salmon.  But I can honestly say I've never poached a cow.  Seems more trouble than it's worth.

Maybe. I think some news sites like to redirect links to their main page for some reason. I've seen it before.

Lets see, what's a Wira... Oh, about Corolla sized. I'm guessing he's stealing calves.

In Texas we don't need to sedate them. It's not hard to steal a calf, about as hard as moving a body.

Oh man, I totally misread that headline. I thought it said when you use a blowj*b to sedate a cow.

I've been looking at the Politics tab too much.
 
2014-07-25 10:37:49 AM
What was the intent here?

Start a backyard meat market?

Sell whole live cows?

Free the cows from oppressive overlords?

We used to use a .22 with ratshot. Nothin' left of 'em but the tail.

Using blowpipes, a 16-year-old girl and her accomplice downed several cows and stuffed the sedated animals in the back seat of their car, Sinar Harian reported.

I hope they got that car back to the circus before it was reported stolen.

Yeah, because a typical .22 shot shell is *WAY* more powerful than, say, a .410 gauge shotgun...

/That's sarcasm for those without firearms knowledge:  A .410 shotgun shell has more shot and more available kinetic energy than a .22 LR shotshell.

I was out hunting one day and stopped along a hedgerow for some reason or other.  I look down, and about three feet away is a rabbit frozen right in front of me, hiding in low grass.  I was out for pheasant, so I had a 12 gauge with #4 shot loaded.

I ended up with part of the bottom half of a rabbit.
