Im not sure what this forum was turning into, but cheif can hunt bears all he wants , deer or anything else, we dont know if he ate it or not so getting upset about someone elses preferance . is to say the least foolish.<br><br><br>that being said Im not sure if I would trust a slingbow Like i saw him use on youtube would afford me any safety if I wounded the animal and it took a notion to strike back.<br>my whole family hunted, and Ive seen a 30-06 just glance off the bears skull, and it keep comming, you dont want that with a highpowered rifle, let alone a slingbow.<br><br>I think that unless you can achieve the standard bow ,FPS speeds, and penetration to equal, then and only then should it be used for hunting , otherwise some idiots will run out make any ole slingbow then wound hundreds of animals potentially.<br>THIS TO ME IS WHAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED. <br><br><br>and just to be clear, it has been proven time and again wild game in northamerica is safer than beef or pork in america. <br>so if you eat game eat more , and less beef pork and chicken in America and Canada. And dont eat any in england.<br>wild game is more safe. less hormones and no one gets mad cow from a deer or bear.
