as a kid, and as much or more looking for smooth, round rocks. :) I KNOW it's a huge waste of time. SO is trying to stalk close enough to HEAD hit small critters with a rock and slingshot. You have to get inside 10ft, or miss half of the time at 15 ft, and 3/4 of the time at 20 ft. I am NOT wrong about this.

If you spent hundreds of hours practice and weren't able to master the slingshot then you must have very poor hand-eye coordination. Most 12 year olds become proficient to the distance of 20-25ft after only a couple of hours practice. Course everyone is different so its not a big deal.

I have hiked up in the Sierras when I was younger and carried a .22 Browning autoloader pistol, and a slingshot as gamegetters along with some monofilament and a small assortment of hooks. I was usually better at the fishing, than the hunting, but I used .375 lead ball in the slingshot and what I hit stayed where I hit it. Using rocks is a waste of time as they all fly a little different, but can be done if stalking closer. :scatter:

GK, you just don't want to think about there being anything else beside your specific guns that are any good.

I've used a 'wristrocket' style slingshot to take out quail, squirrels, and other critters.

I can just about dive and grab something that's just 10 ft away. I can cut a sapling and make a 10 foot pole! Hell, we have rubberband fights farther than 30 ft in the office!

I remember as a kid getting long rubberbands, cutting them, and using them to kill flys on the wall about 6 ft away. 10 ft and can't hit a rabbit? Why not just get a CO2 pistol if you worry about sound. I bet a good pump up crossman would knock off tons of rabbits and squirrls.
