He Is King of Blowgunners

Record #:
Seventy-eight year old Sampson Welch was remarkably skilled at using a blowgun. The Native American, living on western North Carolina's Cherokee reservation, could shoot a feathered dart from a ten-foot blowgun and knock over a tin can at thirty paces. His son Epps and grandson June carried on the tradition using the ancient weapon.
