hunting. using slingshot and rocks, much less THROWING rocks, is going to burn many TIMES the calories as you will ever get back,with your once a year "success". :)

u might get within 20 ft, once a month, by trying every day, but you'll MISS a lot, educating lots of rabbits about men with rocks. :)

You've obviously never spend much REAL time in the wilds, practicing the primitive.

You just can't get over the slingshot thing, huh? Blow's your mind that something so simple can get game doesn't it. BTW, I've zapped quail with them further than 20ft.

Even the late Sun Bear once wrote that during the Great Depression, every Indian on the road crew packed a slingshot for small game targets of opportunity.

I've also practiced a lot and used an ancient style sling. They are not hard to make and can be quite powerful.

I guess old dogs can't learn new tricks.

I don't know where you get the once a year success idea from.

Just screwing around, we've harvested several rabbits in one day with wrist rockets, using both glass marbles and rocks. (We like the glass marbles, you can go to a dollar store and get something like 500 of them for a buck. $5.00 ought to get you a lifetime's supply that can be easily cached, and no one's going to bother you for having them.)

And before you make a fuss over the use of marbles, notice I said AND ROCKS.

Taking small game with a slingshot isn't all that difficult, nor does it take a huge amount of time to find suitable rocks for use as ammo. Plus, with $5.00 you can cache (or carry) a bunch of ammo.

Why do you insist on making everything seem impossible?

:devil:
