Introduction: Two-Pronged Hunting Spear

In this Instructable, I am going to show you how to make a two-pronged hunting spear. This type of spear can be used for all sorts of smaller game, but is best for small aquatic animals such as frogs and fish.

Step 1: Materials-

The material you will need:

- knife

- cord or thick string, such as paracord

- long straight stick. (This can be as long as you want, I like around a 6 foot range)

- a few twigs cut to 1-2 inch lengths

Step 2:

Shave the larger end of the stick down to a chisel shape and then split the end with your knife.

Step 3:

Tie a piece of cord as tight as you possibly can around and around the stick directly below the split to prevent it from splitting further.

Step 4:

Horizontally jam the small twig into the slit to keep the two sides from coming back together. Them sharpen the two points.

Step 5:

Tie more cord as tightly as you can on both sides of the twig and since I used paracord, I burned the ends. Find a source of animals and Happy Hunting!
