Hello my name is Lilly and I am making videos about primitive living skills, survival, bushcraft, camping gear and prepping. I consider myself being a modern hunter-gatherer who wants to live as close as possible with mother nature and right now I am in the process of learning how to live off the land and thrive in the wilderness.

Video Transcription

I'm survivor Lilly and today's video is going to be about slingshot the first link shot I have here is a very traditional slingshot it's consisting out of reshaped round it has some rubber bands and a piece of leather I have to say that it's not that strong you can make it stronger by doubling up the rubber bands and with this strength here you probably can shoot some small birds or red squirrels and the other slingshot I have here is a slingshot by the company true mark made in the US this is really my favorite slingshot when it comes to hunting I consider this being a serious weapon if you can shoot with it it's consisting out of tube bands rubber tube bands it has a very nice shaped economical handle inside of the handle you have a secret compartment where you can store your ammunition and you have armrest which is very important when you have a strong slingshot like this one here so if you are good shot with the slingshot

you can definitely hunt a small game like squirrels or for example hair stuff like that as the target I'm using this old cane here and I gotta hang it on a tree it's great because it makes a sound when you hit the can and for the ammunition I'm using a true mark steel balls here these are 5 16 inch steel balls

I think steel is great I do not recommend to take lead balls because lead is very bad for the environment okay I have just found a good spot where I can hang the can for safety reasons it's important that you hang it on a branch where there's nothing else in the background you don't want to have a tree right behind the can because if you don't hit the can you will hit a tree and probably the seed ball will come back to you if you have pets with you make sure that you are not shooting while the pet is running around the target area okay I'm about seven meters away from the target which is a good distance for small animals I first can shoot with the small slingshot here and the connection I'm using is basically the same technique that I use when I shoot a bow so I come very close to my chin here and it's important that you always have the same draw length because otherwise you shoot sometimes higher or lower so close second shot Yeah right into the middle now let's try out the other slingshot here no again but I was right in the middle let's try to aim higher Wow yeah so this is what the can looks like after all the shooting there's no question that the slingshot has a lot of penetration at first my hit rate was pretty good at a distance of 5 meters I had a hit rate of 75% but then I was increasing the distance and at 10 meters I only had 25% anymore so to me the slingshot is a weapon that you can use for a very short range hunting there are some slingshot experts out there who can shoot small targets at far distances but you need to practice a lot to be that good with the slingshot to me the slingshot is a good weapon but I prefer the gum or the bow over the slingshot because they are more accurate I have put a link into the description where you can get a slingshot like this the true mark slingshot I think it's of awesome quality and it won't let you down I want to thank you for watching don't forget to subscribe like and share and stay tuned until next time
