I made a quick stick shot just to see if I could actually shoot it. All I did was cut down a branch and shaved the bark off. it worked really well but I cut it long so that I could get two out of it. but now that I cut the wood in halve the bands slip off after a few shots, I am shooting less accurate, and I have had 2 shots come back(I believe this is a sender shot?). But I know that I can shoot it because yesterday non of this happened. I also need to know if paracord is best to tie pouch or just tube rubber. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
