Re: Legality of Compound (Archery) Bow Cruising other Countries

I imagine an electric chainsaw would do better on a boat as they are quite light and easy to swing. Just need good power cord management..

This comment certainly elevates the discussion to a new and previously uncharted intellectual level. Risking jail time to shoot down mangos and coconuts.

Re: Legality of Compound (Archery) Bow Cruising other Countries

I've never seen anyone use a chainsaw to repair their boat yet, but maybe it could work for a wooden boat or fibreglass. I don't think they make metal cutting chains for steel boats? A pedal powered chainsaw would be interesting.

As for coconuts and other fruits, I climb the tree. Too slippery if it's raining. I wonder if a high power laser could work.

I remember in ureparapara the locals made bows to hunt pigs and for bow fishing, and we did some target practice, I managed to hit the target! In another place I gave someone a fish I caught with a hook and he wasn't impressed because he hunts fish with a bow from a dugout canoe.

Re: Legality of Compound (Archery) Bow Cruising other Countries

Maybe a fun tool on a boat, May 20 a guy in VT, fishing with a compound bow, took a 44lb Carp,a new Lake Champlain record.

These "weapons" threads are always hilarious and I never reply to them but this one I couldn't leave alone.

Yup - I can see how a compound bow is a necessity for harvesting mangoes they are so hard to reach and all...

I just worry she ain't strong enough to make the pull...

Seriously - have you ever seen a for real mango tree?

And what's best for bananas? Shotgun? RPG? Mortar round?

I heard that around certain parts of the south Pacific a boomerang is the weapon of choice for attacking bananas.

Re: Legality of Compound (Archery) Bow Cruising other Countries

I once went tree climbing giant Douglas Fir trees in the PNW with a friend who is a biologist.

We used a crossbow with a spool of spectra tuna line to shoot a bolt 80-100' up over the bottom branches as a messenger for a climbing line, and then ascended with Jumars before free-climbing the branches to the top. Super fun!



Not sure what your horizontal range would be with a similar rig but might come in handy someday to pass a line between two points. Certainly farther than you can swing a monkey's fist.

Re: Legality of Compound (Archery) Bow Cruising other Countries

Most countries, including the USA, would consider a compound bow a weapon. The logic would be to declare it with other weapons when entering another country. As a lifelong hunter (upland game, waterfowl and deer), I have owned a Browning Deluxe Bushmaster bow for 30 plus years (a beautiful piece of work-a wooden compound bow) that is a deadly weapon in a skilled archer's hands. I would rather be shot by a gun than a broadhead. However, the practicality of a bow on a boat is another story since it is more cumbersome, requires more effort to execute and requires adequate space to pull/fire. For those who choose to carry a weapon, a gun is a far more practical option. Good luck, good sailing and for those of us who engage in bloodsports . . . good hunting!

I can't believe I was drawn into this

St. Croix is not even close to the lower Caribbean, and is the most Western island in both the Northern and Southern East Caribbean (save PR/DR/Haiti - depending how you slice the EC). But putting that niggly geography thing aside, what do you suppose you would hunt in St. Croix, or any of the other Eastern Caribe islands?

There are lots of goats, chickens and pigs, with a few cows around, but their owners would be pretty pissed if you shot them. If you want mangos and coconuts, those are practically free. If you must get them for yourself, you will feel pretty silly shooting up in a tree while standing knee deep in a pile of the ones that have fallen down on their own accord.

My suggestion is to first get a chart, then google some current images of these places - I have a feeling you will find that they don't exist like you think they do. Then simply google the cruising weapon importation and use laws for those countries. I wouldn't take law advice from anyone here over such an important thing.

BTW, the whole fruit/weapon juxtaposition reminded me of that old Monty Python skit about attacking people with fruit…

Might need the bow if attacked by the "killer pigs" of Staniel Cay!

I was surprised to find that there is hunting in Barbuda of all places. Including feral deer and boar. Weird for such an essentially desert island.

Lolol. When every zombie must die. I have a great idea for personal defense actually.. A potato gun that looks like just Abs pipe, but not fully assembled. 2 minutes to put together
