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:
- 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
Shave the larger end of the stick down to a chisel shape and then split the end with your knife.
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.
Horizontally jam the small twig into the slit to keep the two sides from coming back together. Them sharpen the two points.
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!
