    This slingshot was made from a Whitetail deer antler that on it's own was not of sufficient size or shape to be a slingshot. As such, i have hybridized it with several other woods. The handle section is made from a kingwood laminate with bamboo accent stripes. The forks are made from solid...

It seems to me for a right hand shooter. I'm going to dry and leave it just the time to think the best way to work it. Please do you have...
