So as some of you may know I just bought my first slingshot yesterday. I litterally live in the woods haha like i live in the country the cloest neighbor is a good 5 minute ride to there house. Um. and about 25 minutes to get out town wich consist of a gas station a few restaurants and a Food city...Anything else is atleast n hour drive. however I have been practicing like crazy And went out for a 3 hour hike today. Seen many birds out Didn't want to shoot at anything I can't eat
I'm not a hunter for sport but for food hehe, Anyways. I hiked to the top of the holler. And followed the cliff side around. And had my sllingshot with me And there I saw it. A quail, Ok so Before you think ((Hmm a newbie hunting? possibly not a good idea lol)) Anyways. I seen it and drawed my slingshot back and shot at it. No honestly I didn't think I would hit it. But I thought What a thrill it would be anyways. But I got right by it's wing and it flew off
I was using a glass ball for ammo Idk if that's even good ammo to use lmao
But yeah Just thought I'd share that...I'ma go again tomorrow...Mind you The time im up in there In the woods that is. I shoot at random things to get better at accuracy
but yep just thought I'd share that

Just make sure your making ethical shots.. If it's still tough, bring an air rifle with you to help finish if necessary.
well i wouldn't want anything to suffer I've hunted before with guns like a 30-30 and killed deer but if I killed a bird. or shot at one and it fell but was still alive I always have a knife on me it's razor sharp. And has a compass on it. But I would put it out of it's misury easily

However. I'm not sure if it's very good or not I've seen alot of people user the flatbands...Instead of tubes? WHats the diffrence? And where can I get flatbands? And possibly a better slingshot? also were can I get steel ammo instead of glass balls? And what size do you recomend? Also. Just letting you know I live in a really ******* town that really has nothing in it...There is a few hunting places...But not sure if they would carry that or not...Gonna check but any advice?
