Should slingshots be allowed for grouse hunting?

It would be cool to be able to take a slingshot along on a deer hunt and when you come across a grouse it would be cool to legally be able to shoot it with a slingshot.

 :dunno:

For most the odds of hitting one and even wounding it let alone killing it are so low that I doubt harvest would be even double digits.
