Detlef is correct.These bows are like large slingshots and operate on the same principle. They can be very accurate and are good for taking down birds and small game. I've seen folks using them who can consistently hit a tin can at 40-50 yards with a half inch round pebble. Don't know what the upper limit of their range may be. There are versions also used in southern China.
