Hello from NE Wisconsin
Jan 7th, 2023 at 2:55pm
 
Good Day!
I started slinging wayyyy back when I was 6. My grampa was an accurate slinger. He showed me how back then and I never quit. I still have that first sling we made together. Many have been made since then. Sling makers today sure make some beautiful slings. I'm glad to discover I am not the only one who is keeping this ancient art alive. I sling for fun, to defend my poutry yards, and gardens. Seems everyone likes chicken and veggie dinners. Angry  Nice to be here!

Welcome from Virginia. I wish I had been introduced to slinging when I was a kid. I just recently (July of 2022) started my journey with the making and use of this awesome tool the shepherds sling. U should join in on the practicalparacord online slinging competitions every Saturday.

You are lucky you learned with your grandfather ! Many of us have to relearn everything.
Otherwise, I like roast chicken with potatoes around.  Smiley

I appreciate the welcomes! I'm sure no expert. I've already learned a bunch of new things from you guys.  Any other lady slingers?
