    There is a new slingshot forum now, this time it is all about hunting.<br><br>As you may know, I don't hunt, for a number of reasons - basically because I don't enjoy it, and it is illegal here too. But I do not frown upon hunters at all, it must be done, and it puts food on the table. <br><br>So if anyone want to try the new place, here is the link: <br><br><a href="http://slingshothunting.freeforums.org/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://slingshothunting.freeforums.org/</a><br><br>I have no idea who is behind this, though. Still I thought you may wanna know.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I,ve watched the vids too , and i kinda agree with Tobias. At one part he tells us that he/we need to shoot for 10 minutes to get in to it and get more acurate shooting. For me that is true but i just cant imagine a animal to wait and stay still for a hunter "to get into it" <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_surprised.gif" alt="Surprised" longdesc="4"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>And i dont agree when he say,s that flatbands are not powerfull enough for hunting , I,m sure he never seen the power that Joerg and Tobias (and many others) get out of flatbands <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>But i,m sure he means well <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>All the best.</span>

    I started out with heavy tubes, too, and still use them for powerful crossbows. They last a long time, and for stirrup equipped crossbows shooting heavy ammo they work very well. <br><br>For handheld slingshots, their performance is lousy in comparison with flat bands.

    As a starter (only 5000+ shots) I find very odd the movement he does when releasing the ball, I try to do as Bill Hays teach in his tutorial (vertical and anchor point just above my shoulder, (40" draw aprox), I also tried a butterfly style (very powerful shots) but my accuracy is horrid. I also did Jeorg's "chicken" test with 11mm steel balls (5.43 gramms) with my flat bands and found that the penetration was pretty good, (or enough to take a rabbit), with 16mm steel ammo it would be better ?? ...

    I am not much into hunting but because I live in a rural area I find my new found sport is great for rat control. After about 6 months in this sport I am sold on flat bands, even though they don't last as long as tubes (I do have a few slings with tubes) I get way better performance from flat bands. By using different widths, different strengths, tapering, and multiple layers of thera-band I can really fine tune what I want to use the slingshot for. I find it hard to get the same control with tubes.

    <u>Joerg</u>, <i>thank you</i> for the link to the new slingshot hunting forum.<br><br>Yes, it will be <u>strictly</u> slingshot hunting.<br><br>Slingshots, in general, has a very small market for potential members.<br><br>And slingshot hunting, in particular, would have only a very small fraction of that number for potential membership.<br><br>We know a slingshot hunting forum will grow very, very slowly because slingshot hunting is just not something that very many people participate in. <br><br>However, we still wanted to create <u>"the" place</u> where those interested in hunting with a slingshot can come and dialogue with other like-minded slingshot enthusiasts. <br><br>It is not for everyone, as you said. But if any members of your forum would like to check us out, we welcome them.<br><br>Again, <u>thank you</u> for the link to the forum. <br><br><br><a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/slingshothunting.freeforums.org" class="postlink">slingshothunting.freeforums.org</a><br><br><a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/" class="postlink"></a>

    Joerg, there has been discussion at slingshothunting.freeforums.org of making a through-the-fork tube shooter out of Theraband Silver tubes. I have never tried the TheraTubes tubes.<br><br>Is the Theratatube Silver the heaviest pull TheraTubes that are available?
     
  16. Thanks for posting the link to the slingshothunting forum, that is the main reason I got into slingshots was hunting and fishing applications. Can't beat their compact size for a survival situation.
