To place lines in trees, I use a slingshot and a one ounce fishing
weight tied to a lightweight monofilament line from a fishing reel
which is attached to the slingshot using a cable tie. The slingshot
will have less range (safer than arrow) but has excellent accuracy.
It helps to paint the weight! I use either yellow or "safety" orange.
After the fishing line in place, I pull a small nylon cord through and
then use the cord to pull a rope.
