Yeah a pellet bow I think I could shoot in my backyard even with stones and not worry to much but the cork idea sounds like a good training idea too, any issues with the cork being so lightweight?

You'll be surprised how much energy will go in a little stone and even in a cork
be sure to try cork, or even balls made of aluminum foil or rubber  before shooting stones

A stone can definitely kill some critter, probably also a cork at short range

for the bow make it wide limbed to avoid twist
deep handle for a good grip (you need to twist your wrist) and high brace

any thoughts on the single string style you posted from Thailand and the European paintings?
i have some thoughts but wondered if you have any insights on them.
