I'm not a specialist but I understand about throwing sticks that :
The simpler the stick is, more straight it flies. But at a short range.
The more streamlined it is, the longer it flies but with a curved trajectory. Horizontally and vertically. So it's necessary to adjust the stick.
For example, according Luc Bordes in his thesis (page 49) : two photos.
The shape L is adapted for small game and it's easy to use.

Hi Slyngorm.
After tomorrow, I'll translate with REVERSO the pages 67 and 68.
I think that for your guide, this kind of throwing sticks is interesting. There are 4 photos, 1 of Africa, 2 of Australia and 1 of India.

With this link, you can see many photos of throwing sticks in the world. Not only australian throwing sticks. Interesting  Roll Eyes

I've heard that matchlocks are harder to hunt with than you would imagine, as if the breeze is not favourable the animals will be alerted by the smell of the match cord.
I don't think medieval handgonnes (the pole variety) would be good for hunting though. You have two options:
1) have the priming powder loosely sitting in the pan for fast ignition with a cost to aiming and risking of spilling it.
2) Compress the priming powder in the pan so that it doesn't fall out (even when turned upside down) as well as burn like a fuse so that you can concentrate on aiming before it goes off, at the cost of alerting all everything around you. 
They are quite versatile however, and you can shoot anything from bullets and lead shot to flint shrapnel (yes they did this).
Maintenance is very easy, and making them isn't hugely difficult if you have the metals and the know-how.

Hi Slyngorm,
I do what I can. In private message, I give you some notes about some photos.
If you have more questions, no problem.

I've never liked firearms' loudness. I already suffer from tinnitus, whether that's due to electromagnetic interference or due to noise induced hearing loss, I don't know. I do try to take care of my ears since I was 16, wearing protection wherever required. My tinnitus is not too bad, in nature I don't hear it due to the background noise, but inside a room I do hear it. I do not want it to get worse. I don't get how people shot guns in the past without hearing protection, or with minimal protection. Hearing protection for guns is a relatively new thing.  It always baffled me how people could use guns without it.
I always cringe when I see people shoot guns without hearing protection.
I heard blackpowder guns are not as loud as modern firearms. I don't know about that. If I could own 1 firearm it would be a .22, integrally suppressed.

@tombelaine an interesting take on the throwing stick is the African Rungu. They get quite the distance on those.

Yes J, a easy and heavy stick with a straight fly and a short range but sufficient for hunt and defence.

I know this isn't speaking about the topic but you can reduce the size of a photo by putting it in paint and pressing the resize button. I used to have the same problem as well and the photos would take 10 seconds to scroll through

Thanks MarianoV123.
It's in the subject because it's painful to scroll through the screen to see something.
I'm working on... : -/ Undecided

When I see his face, I don't know if it's worth surviving.
