I think one of the biggest selling points of the blowgun is that a man needs to eat at least a couple times a week and it is a lot easier to make a usable dart than it is to make a bullet and gunpowder or new elastics for a slingshot.

With that in mind, I have taken advantage of the railroad tracks behind my house to encourage the spread of some native thistle plants for making Cherokee style darts and I've also got some Yucca plants started on and near my property for making cordage. This spring I will be making my first attempt at growing cotton. There are farmers growing it for a hundred miles north and south of me so I know the climate is agreeable. If it turns out that I can grow it and use it to make usable darts, I'll be adding some cotton seeds to the Yucca and thistle seed that I keep in my BOB. Hope for the best but prep for the worst.
