I'm made of wood, but I'm not a tree. I'm used specifically to throw things; but of course, I'm mainly used to find food, although I can be used to fight my foes.
I throw stone and wood, all at the same time. My aim is to reap either food or territories.

What am I?




What Next?

A bit esoteric. "Boomerang" in the title was helpful (but not helpful enough for me).

Great teaser!!
Although I'm familiar with a spearthrower, I had never heard of a woomera. I thought it was a slingshot until I read the part about stone AND wood!!

I thought it was a bow, it doesn't really "throw" but thats the general idea.

the Woomera is mentioned in an episode of the Simpsons...and that's where I get all my knowledge

also, the word "whilst" is one of my favorite words ever; not used enough in my opinion

I thought a bow too. Would have been better for me if i knew what one was.

I knew that answer, my friends and I were just commenting on their latest styles and how fashionable they've become. Good Teaser,
