Is this real?
Feb 12th, 2019 at 9:55pm
 
I'm not sure if anyone has posted this yet but I was wondering if you guys thought this was a legitimate sling hunting video.

https://youtu.be/1ic5ECjaKn4

If its legit, I am impressed. Not a bad primitive sling either.

Die Sling ist sehr primitiv. Ich habe ähnliches gebaut. Sie schießen nicht sehr gut.
Er verwendet als Munition keinen Stein. Das ist gut. Ich jagte einmal ein Kaninchen. Ich traf es auf ca. 15m direkt am Kopf. Der Stein trennte denn Kopf einfach ab.
Sein schießen ist mäßig bis schlecht. Bei seinem Training ist sein Ziel sehr nahe. Etwas weiter als die Länge seiner Sling. Bei der richtigen jagt wurde der treffer nicht gezeigt. Nach meiner Meinung hat er nicht getroffen.
Ansonsten ist das Video nicht schlecht. Es ist machbar. Ich würde mehr Aufwand für die Sling verwenden.

I'll go with jaegoor.

doable - but if he'd actually killed the bird with the sling - it would most likely have been on video.

A good close range slinger. I've got to watch again to see if I can figure out how to make that sling.  Pretty cool hut too!

If he's a Negrito, who were the indigenous peoples of the Philippines, then there are still some of them who hunt with slings.  The ones I knew had curly hair, though. 

The wild chickens in the Philippines that I saw were brown, and looked like Bantams.  I suppose there could be white ones, just because I never saw one doesn't mean there aren't any.

I agree with everybody else, it's doubtful he hit the chicken.  And several rotations tend to get caught in the brush.  Which was my problem when I attempted to use one for squirrels.  And I used a rather short sling.

Thank you everyone for checking it out. I tend to agree that the footage was likely staged (fake). I hope someday to find a video of a successful sling hunt. If so I will keep everyone here in the loop.

Ich hoffe sie finden es nicht.
Obwohl ich schon einige mal mit einer Sling gejagt habe, würde ich niemals ein Video davon drehen.
Ich trainiere viel lieber meine Fähigkeiten für eine erfolgreiche jagt. Dafür muß ich nicht töten.
Ich habe genug zu essen. Das töten mit einer sling wäre demnach nur Sport. Ich verachte das töten als Sport.
Versuchen sie das.

Like jaegoor I also have hunted with the sling but I don't feel that it's something that should be filmed for sport or entertainment.
Although I would like to see footage of jaegoor hunting, the skill he displays is enough for me to belive his stories. I do not need the footage to belive it's possible or true from him.
And his training videos show why.

   I very much believe this video was meant to be comedy.
