I'm not sure how many people know the meaning of "Counting Coup"? From what I understand, some of the Indian Tribes respected the act.. Basically in battle, they did not necessarily have to kill the enemy to claim glory.. If they simply touched the enemy it counted as an act of bravery. Sometimes when hunting I have the same sort of satisfaction with a non target animal getting close such as a squirrel or a doe when I'm waiting for a buck.. I just bought a new slingshot last week and today I was in town placing a For Sale sign in the yard of a house.. The squirrels were thick but so were the houses and I sure didn't want to introduce myself to the neighbors over a broken window... But I was itching to try the sling shot out also... So I loaded up but only pulled about 1/3rd draw and launched a few steel balls at them.. The third one scared the little bugger and I enjoyed doing that without hurting him.. I might try this on a few does during gun season or a few squirrels!
