Of course, let us not forget my favorite loop erecting tool; the one that
spelled the end to your castles, even before the appearance of modern cannon
- the trebuchet. :)

Seriously (before April Fools Day ideas overtake us), it would be difficult
to beat the 55lb compound bow that I've been using for over a year now.
Lately, I've been having excellent success with more than a normal amount of
lead tape wrapped on the tip of the arrow and with a bow shot angle of about
80 degrees. The arrow goes up about 150 ft and then straight down to the
ground with almost no tendency to hang-up on the tree branches.

My method uses a heavy duty catapult, a fishing line and an iron nut
about 1/2 inch ID. The fishing line is contained on a spinning reel and
connected to a bottom section of the normal fishing
rod............................................
Another method is using an old small bore cannon. Position the cannon at
the correct angle and direction of fire. Loosly cover the muzzle of the
cannon barrel with some strong fish net, and nylon rope about 3/8 inch
diamater attached. Fire the cannon and the ball will project the net and
rope as required over the tree, this method is superior for 200
ft........................................
