Having watched the unboxing video, it looked like one of the jargono native's starting skills is to both start with a bow (instead of a shield), gets bonus to hit for ranged, and also to get the rancher's ability to get more shots one a kill, but with a bow instead of a rifle.

I'm unreasonably excited about this.

Can anyone who has the native confirm or deny this?

I think the wording is that once a turn the Native can get another bow shot if it kills an enemy with the bow.

Regardless, I'm planning a tribal hunting party of 4 natives with a field researching doc added later.

Can confirm there is a ranged starting upgrade that provides a bow as starting gear, I didn't look at the other details.

That is correct, at one extra shot per turn.

You can see in the second photo here.

The skill that lets the native double endurance/ignore though is amazing!

I'm actually not familiar with the endurance key word, what does it do?

Endurance is a number that caps the amount of damage an enemy can take from a single hit. So Endurance 4 would mean that your roll of seven damage from a shotgun would be capped at 4 and 3 wounds would be discarded. Using the above example, the skill that lets him double the number would allow the native to do up to 8 damage from a single hit.
