I know the hunting bow is spos to be early game only but more or less players like to make use of it late game just to mess around or as a good throw away weapon. Would it be possible to add arrows made from bone and metal? Maybe give them different stats bone may have a same drop rate and a higher chance to break but a more effective alternative to the stone arrows if a player wants to save stone. Metal may drop sooner but do more damage either in bleed effect or initial damage. Just some ideas that would make use of bone frags later on in game play.
Spears made of metal or bone would also look awesome as a mid game item.
