Tomahawk and the Rat hunt
Last night,I was invited on a Rat hunt by my friend Saijung and his son. All 3 of us piled onto their motor bike and headed off into the dark woods , armed with home made shot guns and head lamps.
I sat wedged between Saijung and his son as we headed down a thailand Back road toward the designated hunting spot. Once there we built a fire, and practiced firing the guns.
These guns are pretty simple affaris but very accurate and pretty to look at, It shows a lot of cleverness in the way they are made.I greatly admire the use of available materials; like the small listerine bottle used to hold gun powder, toy caps to fire the charge and luffa gourd as wadding, cool stuff!
The thing I like the most is the way these Piratical rascals hunt! The first build a fire, then lay out some sleeping mats, break out the food and whisky, then send the young guys out to hunt while the old guys lay around, drink booze, eat, smoke and sleep! Perfect.
I really hope you enjoy viewing these pictures, Ill post a vid or 2 soon also.
