Electrical Sportsman

The Electrical Sportman is operated with the help of an electrostatic generator that charges the Leyden Jar on the base plate of the setup. The ‘Birds’ are electrically connected to the jar start to drift away from one another once the jar is charged. When the distance between the sportsman, which needs to be grounded, and the jar is small enough, a discharge can take place between the tip of his rifle and the jar's conductor - and with a crack, the birds drop from the sky!
