    Thanks.  BTW, gray is the very best color if you live with multiple shedding Huskies.

The hero in this story for me is definitely the bear. It looks so goofy it conveys the full craziness.

It turned out that I really only had two choices for royalty free drawings of a standing bear.  Here is the runner up:

I'm not saying you made a mistake in your choice, but...

I Know, I know. The club bear is silly enough to be on a shirt inspired by RS, but the drawing style didn’t match the slinger drawing, and the club just doesn’t make any sense at all. Maybe I will have to try another shirt that uses this bear?

Club bears weren’t really RS’ style. It’s too fantastical and not plausible... RS’s stories were more geared towards getting other slingers to try doing dumb stuff like slapping a pool of water with a flat rock or bending your wrist to form a hand-turkey at the end of a throw. If there’s a story about a bear holding a club, there’s no action you can take that looks silly in response.

Well I think it's a matter of how proficient you are with it
But in a survival situation with nothing on your back but your clothes. A sling is available from your clothes. from plants . It makes for a good improvised weapon
And cord is a definite survival tool

Very seriously  Wink, it seems that the main survival weapon for the bear is the club.

It’s an excellent choice for any bear in a survival situation. A club in the right paws can kill any north American animal... even other bears.  I do not know any who have done so, but I do know a retired circus bear who used the turkey overhand club style to kill a deer once.  for real.

The Vikings had a weapon called the skepifletta. Basically, it's a version of a slingstaff. A notch is cut in the top of the stick, and a flat rock (flint is mentioned) is placed in it. It's cast like a slingstaff. I can see this easy to make weapon being used in survival.


Can someone tell me more about this? I can't find anymore information.

Ich kenne zwar viel was wikinger betrifft, aber dies ist mir unbekannt. Es scheint mir auch keine reguläre Waffe zu sein.

It can be used for hunting. It's not suitable for all prey in all situations, but like any hunting your primary weapon is your brains.

Fruit bats sleep in trees higher than you can throw by hand. Birds sleep in trees as well, even chickens.

Hunting larger size animals primitively isn't about killing an animal with one well aimed shot every time. Great if it happens but often it's about injuring or slowing them enough that you can finish them off. Or herding them into a trap or towards others.

It would be my primary ranged weapon
