I use a bow and arrow, but I fill the last several inches of hollow 
aluminum arrows with solder inside the arrow by pouring molten 
solder inside the arrow.

I use a dam made from a paper wad to prevent solder from going 
more than six or eight inches deep.

I've found the arrows tend to bend less often, get through the trees 
better, and fly straighter if the outside is left intact and only the 
core filled.

When I have a large stand of trees, I use fishing line and fly a kite 
over the trees. Then I let the kite fall. Even if the line is very long, 
the kite eventually will fall when the wind dies off or shifts.

I'm able to get lines over trees areas that are several hundred feet 
wide with kites.
