Any slingshot hunters out there?
Yes, I hunt with a slingshot.
Nice.... do you make your own?
Most of them I do. I do make all of my own band's from Theraband gold
I shoot a sling shot once in a while and I hunt with one some. I always have on in my pack or in the pickup, but it looks like I am no where near your level.
When getting into position for a deer gun huntING drive, the gun will be on my back and a slingshot in hand. If a rabbit or squirrel pops up, a gunshot would screw the hunt for the rest of the hunters. A slingshot will not spook deer or alert into my presence.
I always take my slingshot to the stand or blind and take squirrels or dove with them I have had to put down a sling shot to pick up a bow to take a deer before.
