    Norwood mostly.
    Is it a 40# draw weight? A solution to a non existent problem.

    No. It says 45# at the top of the picture.

    From this year's hunting regs:

    Archery Equipment: Archery equipment may be used during the archery season, shotgun season, and primitive firearms season. Arrows must have a well sharpened steel broadhead blade not less than 7/8 inches in width. Expanding broadheads are legal. All bows must have a draw weight of at least 40lbs at 28 inches or at peak draw. Poisoned arrows, explosive tips, and bows drawn by mechanical means are prohibited. Crossbows may be used by certain permanently disabled persons by permit only.

    That said, your item in the OP is weird; I'd talk to whatever EPO haunts the area you're going to hunt. A bigger concern is your ability to make a clean, ethical shot (or shots). See how many claybirds you can break at 30 yards.

    Also, post videos!

    It’s not a bow. It is a sling shot.
