One of those days
Feb 23rd, 2019 at 6:53am
 
Slinging was on point today , haven't slung in around 2 weeks, I've been preoccupied with my new bow , practicing , trying my best.

After today, I feel I'm truly a slinger.

No lies this is first shot.

What about the rest of the shots?  Hits or misses? That was a good shot TBH. I need to go slinging but first I need to make some more clay glandes. Cool

Great shot! I'm feeling distinctly un-slingerish having not really had the chance to do any slinging except chucking about a few snowballs and ice balls. I'm really wanting spring to get going so I can get back to rocks and tennis balls.

Like I said, this was my first shot , I had about 20mins of archery before hand and then got the sling out , this was the only shot I took and filmed, I had another maybe 10 throws at diferent targets and also was hitting bullseyes , not every shot but a much better than average day . Perhaps a break in slinging did me good, less target panic .

Here's a log I hit from roughly 20m

Awesome!  Thanks for posting.  I have a few dozen ice balls made up and will get to throw them tomorrow.  Your video definitely has me in the slinging mood.

Maybe I'll go throw one or two now...

When you just get into the zone with slinging it's just... so good. I really can't wait to get out there again properly.

Thanks guys. I'd love to make a compilation but for some reason my YouTube account will not upload anything, so going to the effort of editing a movie and then not being able to show it is very unappealing.

Here's another angle of the hit.

Wish I could sling now. Right now we're experiencing 60 mph winds.

I went through that too.  That was crazy.  Didn't lose power, but lost Internet.  It was still out this morning.
