dc.description Blowpipes are effective at killing small arboreal game. Here a man shoots at a monkey in a tree overhead. Because the darts are silent, they do not scare off the game if they miss. Hunters try to hit an animal more than once to increase the amount of poison in the victims blood and thus to increase the probability of killing it. The hunters bamboo dart quiver and his bushknife are fastened to his waist with rattan straps.
