The pictures were the perfect size. When do we get a range report?

The computer change them . They look normal now .

I need to get a target now and shoot it .. I look at 100 different bow slings and I didn't like any of them , so I came up with this one . I designed a different arrow nocking system and replaces the leather holder but I need larger dia string .

Looks like it was fun to make. I suspect it will take a lot of practice to accurately hit something. Develop a consistent anchor point.

Cool. When I was a youngster, I got pretty good with a slingshot. I guarantee you can hunt with one, even deer with something like that rig.

I did a lot of hunting and 3D target shooting in the late 60's in Pa . I had a archery range on my farm in Tn . Sold my compound bow after moving here in Tx . This bow slingshot should be the ticket back yard shooting or Hog hunting here in Tx heavy brush where a long bow wouldn't work .

There is a lot of videos on hunting with a sling bow . I'm not much on hunting anymore but pigs do a ton of damage to farm land here in Tx . I no longer like to hunt anymore That is why I sold you my 357 Maxie barrel and stuff I got for pig hunting here in Tx and never hunted with it .

Have heard about all the damage those wild hogs can do. They've been occasionally seen in the southern part of Wisconsin, bit our winter snows, up here, in the north, are too deep and consistent for them to feed during our long winters. The only animals that survive up here are animals well equipped to deal with our winters.

The leather ball pooch when threw the Arrow rest / whisker and broke it . I only got to pull and shoot it 25 time before I broke it . So for right now I am going to quit playing with it as a bow slingshot and may use at slingshot later . Will sell any part or all if any one is interested at cheap , cheap price . . I have 10 fiberglass arrows , bow release , bow quiver and sling shot with magnum power band with leather pooch to shoot round balls . . I have the original band I setup for shooting arrows with nocks too . .
