Well then you are implying that the sling simply can't be used for such type of hunting, which I refuse to accept

hunting with a sling


I took two shots at a Jack Rabbit.† First rock missed, but close. Rabbit hopped a couple of times and froze.† Second rock hit.
When I got up to† it there was the head and the legs.† Two parts with nothing in between.† About 8 " or a foot between.
Never wanted to do it again.  I remember it was only 50 yards so I used a larger rock than normal and a low flat trajectory.  I used a full body spin (if you ever see a hammer throw it is similar).  Why spin my body?  I always do it so it is how I know.

I thought practical paracord had a video nailing a duck. I could be remembering wrong though

I remember he tried it in a video or two, but the crack of his sling scared the ducks away before the stone got there. He also slung some stones at an alligator, crazy man Cheesy

J you did nothing wrong but think about hitting the bird ó
MIND READING BIRDS!!!

As for a rabbit I have no doubt a stone has the potential to split a small rabbit.

I think Jaegoor was just saying you might be hunting the wrong way. I canít know the entire context behind either situation, but it sounds like you werenít being too subtle. If I was a pigeon seeing a human do some weird motion and eyeballing me really hard from 10 meters away, Iíd get the hell out of there too. Animals can recognize when someone is looking right at them, and it naturally freaks them out. You might need to be a bit sneakier, maybe have your ammo spinning before youíre in view or as close. If you start up so close, they might get the impression you are going to do something aggressive. And to be fair, you are. I donít know what was up with the geese.

Please continue hunting for squirrel. Would be cool to hear some advice from a real sling hunter.

Just an update. Iíve been out a couple of times, more just to get an idea where the oak trees with the sweet nuts are. For some reason the deer and squirrels will have favorite trees, that differ from year to year, that they visit first. So if u can locate those trees ur odds of a successful will hunt go up. Itís still been to warm and the squirrels in my area still look as if they havenít gotten rid of the parasites I call a wolf. They look like a big grub that burrows under the squirrels skin during the summer, rather discussing little critters. They might b good for fishing? Anyway as fall comes on and the wolves depart the hides of the squirrels I will b ramping up my efforts. Thanks and keep watching, with any luck Iíll have some success with my hunts.
