    Ok any one who knows me or watch my you tube channel knows I like to use slingshots and make slingshots the thing about them ate they are under rated as a weapon they are easy to make and with a little practice you can out shoot a lot of pistol shooters a ten meter's so what are your thoughts on this.

    Sling shots are a viable option. A person should learn to use it BEFORE they need it. Ammo is easy to find, bend over and pick up that pebble and fire away.

    I have always loved a slingshot. My only issue with them for survival is that the latex seems to dry out over time and even if you make your own bands the life expectancy seems to be limited. If you know of a way to keep it pliable for longer I would love to hear it.

    The David type of slingshot is also a valuable tool. They take some practice but when you throw a golf ball size stone it can have devastating effects on a head shot. It takes more practice but then will never wear out. You can always make another one.

    I have taken birds, bunnies and squirrels with the Y type slingshots and think I could do it again with a little more practice. I have to admit that pellet guns and BB guns have mostly replaced the Y sling shot for me so I need to brush back up on it.

    I do make my own bands and I get a lot of shots out of them I shoot mostly flat bands I keep them in a cool dry place most of the time heat kills them.

    I was going to ask your thoughts on the slingbow, then I saw the deer. Nice work. I have a wrist rocket I have adapted for use as a slingbow. I plan to start working with it for small game hunting this year. Any helpful hints?

    If your only going to hunt small game I would just use marbles lead steel or rocks switch the tubes for flat bands and practice it's cheaper and ammo is ever where

    I want to start with small game and then move up to medium sized like that small deer you got.

    I made several slingbows using a slingshot, a couple of zip ties(cable ties to us Brits) and a key ring, fires shorter arrows than a bow which are easier to keep hidden from casual observers.
