This is why I have and practice with a slingshot/catapult. Have taken rabbits, quail, dove and squirrels. Always eat what you take, remember, theoretically a good catapult is deadly to larger game as well. Be safe, be careful and be smart!

$20 gets you a decent slingshot, 1/4″ – 3/8″ shot , and spare bands. My preference for my bugout and survival bags is using tubular bands, lifespan is much longer versus flat bands, however, you give up fps/power in doing so. But, regardless out too around 30 yards it will still be quite deadly on small game.

I linked the slingshots I use and have tested and will show you, hunting, practice and full reviews shortly. Tapered bands allow a faster shot with up to 3/8″s Inch shot, but NOT MARBLES. Experience may differ and by no means am I a professional, I do however,  shoot them well.


About Jesse Mathewson

Jesse Mathewson is the author of the popular blog, and provides commentary to many varied places based on a background that includes education in criminal justice, history, religion and even insurgency tactics and tactical training. His current role in his community is as an organizer of sorts and a preacher of community solidarity and agorism. He also runs Liberty Practical Training, a self defense school specializing in the practical applications of defensive approaches versus the theoretical. As an agorist, voluntaryist and atheist his life is seen as crazy and wild by many, though once they get to know him most realize he is a bluntly honest individual who will give you the shirt off his back if he believes it is necessary to help you. Very simple, "That which is voluntary between all individuals involved is always right, if it is not voluntary, it is always wrong."
