Actually, there can be some minor differences in the design of target and hunting slingshot: A target shooter who exclusively shoots one distance can attach a simple sight that points on the bullseye. A hunter with his varable shooting distances will either use a different type of sight or (most common) use the slingshots frame and his instincts to aim the target.

Second difference is that a target shooter can use a large slingshot with very heavy and cumbersome stabilizers, while a hunter needs a slingshot with better portability. A look at tournament photos, however, shows that the large majority of target shooters use slingshots that could as well be used for hunting with slightly stronger bands. The slingshot in my avatar picture was strictly made with target shooting & tournaments in mind, but it is a very mundane board-cut classic fork.
