Hunters often spend leisure time making new blowpipe darts. Here two girls (on left) and one boy are making darts. Another boy holds a blowpipe with clay packed around the end. Youngsters like to make balls of clay and shoot them through blowpipes at small animals. Their bamboo tube of dart poison leans against a stick in the center.
