    Instead of going hunting with my 22. rifle I decided it hunt with my slingbow so that I can share the amount of penetration a slingbow can give out.<br><br>This is the deer I killed<br><br><br><img src="https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR9sb4oUYUmIEHUS4UzQKqbH7nqltc4rAUeEMdtkazOFiuTyLuC4g" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>Here is my slingbow :<br><br><img src="https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSTY3qbUq6BIWz-4dpBg-WJUCXP7lgBFRPTVxQ5qaBMXJs3VU-y" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Please respond what you think

    I think there is something with the angle of penetration/arrow. Did you shoot it from a tree or a platform? Nice kill( even if i don' t hunt). Next time try to take one with horns and send me a piece of it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">.

    with an arm rest you can make a 50lbs slingbow or maybe a 60 lbs is you are strong enough, that can kill for sure.<br>i've seen your slingbow on youtube, and the guy try to kill a boar with it.<br><br>unfortunatly in france i'm not authorise to hunt with a slingbow .... the law says that i have to hunt with a bow of 80cm minimum....

    The way I made it is the fork is made of bow material with aproxamatly 20lbs of resistance so at 25cm thats the full draw for the rubber then if you keep pulling to its max point then it will add 20lbs of power

    I hate to be the one to point this out, but that is a cruel way to kill an animal. That animal suffered immensely and died a horribly painful death. You got very little penetration and maybe grazed a lung, maybe. Please reconsider "hunting" until you've got some good advise and practice.

    I couldnt agree more with Bert. Plus killing such a beautiful animal to have it eaten mostly by a dog is a shame.
