The non-returning boomerang, or a variation of the throwing stick has been used as a hunting tool on every continent from time immemorial, and is still found in isolated pockets around the globe even today.
Injected molded from high impact Polypropylene with an attractive wood grain texture, you can use our Boomerang for hunting and sport throwing. It’s a great gift, and hours of fun!
Wood grain surface texture, and sporting the most aerodynamic length, shape and cross section we could devise, our boomerang fills the bill.
You can use it for hunting, target throwing, and distance throwing and, in a pinch, it will also serve admirably as a highly effective self-defense tool as well.
The boomerang, or throwing stick has been used on every continent from time immemorial and is still found in use as a hunting tool in isolated pockets around the globe even today.
Fashioned in various shapes, forms and sizes and made from wood, bone, horn and even metal, it was most effective when used to harvest game birds, water fowl and small game.
Today, the boomerang or throwing stick is most closely associated with Australia where many original inhabitants still posses the skill and knowledge to use them to put meat on the table.

"There are several kinds of boomerangs, but what we are mostly familiar with is the returning boomerang, which is, for all intents and purposes, merely a toy, a plaything for amusement (it is today a kind of sports for enthusiasts)."
"Hunting boomerangs – aborigines call them kylies - are usually heavier as well as larger and are made a bit differently from returning boomerangs, mainly in the shape of its airfoil. Many non-returning boomerangs have one arm much longer than the other, so they do not fly in a circular path but are easier to aim, fly faster and are more deadly when used for maiming or killing animals."
"There are many ways a non-returning boomerang may be used for hunting. King Tutankhamen of Egypt used them to hunt ducks, probably throwing them at ducks rising from the water. If a heavy boomerang barges into a flock of ducks, it is bound to hit one or two if thrown correctly. Ducks and other waterfowls flying off from the water surface do it in one direction, so a leading throw can hit and most probably hurt the wing or neck enough to bring the fowl down."
"Native Americans, notably the Hopi, also use the boomerang to hit small game such as rabbits and hares, but perhaps deer as well once in a while. Australian natives could throw it against an emu to hit the neck and break it, or one leg to immobilize it. The same may be done with a kangaroo or wallaby, if throwing is performed with skill and the boomerang is heavy enough to at least stun the animal."
"The Australian aborigines, being one a few peoples that never used the bow arrow, preserved the boomerang and skills of its use. So today, when we think of boomerangs, we think of Australian natives and returning flying wedges of wood."
Several excerpts from the Owners with obviously intimate knowledge and experience of the Boomerang and it's use.
Aerodynamics can be observed, and even better with shapes of varying schemes.
