      Because a sporting goods store is a lot easier to find than archery shooting events that have the ability to let blind people shoot.  Only about a quarter of the events I go to can handle blind shooters due to govt range rules.

       

      Museums rarely let you touch exhibits.

      Why a Sporting Goods store as oppose to an American-Indian museum?

      I don't know what you are trying to describe, but it's not a bow and arrow.  You really need to do some basic research on this rather than digging your self deeper into the hole. You are showig such a lack of basic 5th grade knowledge that trying to explain your mistakes is not wworth the time.  Have your parents or a friend take you to a sporting goods store and let you feel what a bow and arrow set are like.

      The bows are made form animal claws, making it easier for them to hook into the arrow head.

      There is a leather strap at the bow’s top to release the arrows.

      So, they could use the bow as a weapon, especially if that’s all they had. Sometimes a hunter may be desperate, and steal a quiver of arrows, off the person’s back. Bow and arrow theft is common on Yemora, but though rare, happens on Sarm.

      If it’s a pack of desperate hunters, that’s when both bow and arrows are taken. Rarer still, is the lone hunter ho takes both. Also, rare is the hunter, who steals food from another hunter.

       

      These hunters distract their prey with a distraction call. The call sounds like the rattle of a rattlesnake’s tail. It’s the rubbing of their hands.

      This is coming from my head, and I’ll send through a revised copy once it’s done. I’m critiquing manuscripts now, so haven’t been able to worldbuild yet. Three manuscript to go.

      Okay.

      >The Sarmians use them for self-defense.

      Um. Bows are not really very good self-defense weapons.

      As I understand it, an arrow penetrates better some distance away from the shooter.
      Perhaps not quite so well at very close range.

      I guess they could always drop the arrows and start swinging the bow! :)
