What have you killed with a sling?
Jun 3rd, 2013 at 7:17pm
 
As the title says, what animal's last sight was a rock flying towards their head?

As for me, I took out a lizard at thirty paces. Probably a lucky shot.

a very expensive picture window...and the fish tank on the opposite end of the living room Lips Sealed . That's about it...no formal intentions to destroy life, however.

Don't aim at animals unless you are hunting and will use what you hit. That goes for all weapons. And don't tell us if you do so out of season.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

Plywood, milk jugs, beer bottles, soda cans, plastic bottles, some concrete, the occasional tree, a mouse, my target, a piece of carpet...

Rabbits, grouse and couple squirrels.
I've thrown at coyotes, dogs, cats some livestock but only to chase them out of or into places.  
Slings are not reliable enough for consistent hunting success. I've missed a ton more then I've hit.
Scared the crap out of a bunch of animals, injured or killed very few.

There are a lot of rabbits around which means that right now there are fewer coyotes and foxes and birds of prey. Thinking it's time to take in some live animal practice.

Have wanted to throw into a flock of ducks or geese but havent' yet. It's one of the few ways a sling can be used to take game with a better chance of success.

I cannot say how much self control it took to not take sling a stone at a humongous goose twenty feet away at a subdivision lake this morning.
