    I've been trying to make one of these, so far I haven't been able to find the right shape in the wild.

    Yes used one, increases range and power and accuracy is still ok
    Lots a practice needed, easy to make, length is critical and needs to match arm length and strength, its a trial and error personal thing!
    Don't keep one and don't really expect to ever need one, but I can make one if needed!

    I never heard about this before and.. well, it looks pretty weird for some reason. And also pretty big, maybe it wouldn't be the best weapon of choice in the wilderness since you probably would opt for something more fast and practical.
    I recognize this is eccellent in a hunting situation, but when you have to use it to defend yourself it wouldn't be as much as effective...

    That's very impressive. would be interesting to make one. Maybe after the tractor project.
