    This weekend we were out harassing the local pigeon population... I would take a slingshot and shoot a marble up around their roosts to run them out for a shot and it occurred to me that I practically grew up with a wrist rocket attached to my left hand!

    All those memories came flooding back and I realized that I deserve my very own slingshot forum where I can feel comfortable discussing all the joys and problems that go along with slingshot hunting with like minded folks on our own private forum!

    I'm hiring Hatsan Sniper as my agent/advisor!

    When dove hunting in Mexico I’ve seen Mexicans that retrieve our doves get a sling shot and shoot them while flying

    As a kid; I was usually stuck with odd shaped rocks and they never fly the same way twice.

    Marbles from Dollar tree seem to be accurate and plenty cheap!

    I use to shoot our neighbors cows with slingshot and rock everyday that I could when I was a kid. Dad had to get loads of rock on driveway all time. Lol.

    is there something better than surgery tubing? i seen what meatstick ^^^^ was using, it looks like vacuum lines, except i never seen any that would stretch..
    i tried to make a slingshot once, but it was the kind you spin around. i must not have made the pouch right. it could throw some bigger rocks though..

    Got to cut a fork hickory limb and find a old intertube and a small leather pouch. If your going to hunt with one you have to go primitive before you get your own forum...LOL

    Look up "dankung" tubing. The Chinese make better rubber than we can.
    You pretty much match the rubber for what size ammo you wanna shoot.
