Should slingshots be allowed for grouse hunting?
« on: December 25, 2016, 07:25:27 PM »
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.

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.

Lots of folks don't have guns or bows, so this would open up hunting to more people.  There are guys that would love to use slingshots or airguns.  The organic, hippy crowd seems like they would get into hunting more if something like slingshots were allowed.

You will find that 1/4 inch nuts are aerodynamically amazing. Can't explain why but they do fly better than anything else.

I even to this day use a gravel shoot for convincing stray animals.   :chuckle:

Better get your multi-season and sling shot applications in by the 1st. Only $10 to apply and $150 if you draw. That early wrist wrocket season can be amazing.  Cant beat the taste of a rock killed bird. No pellets to bite on either. Just be careful to use good judgement if you're close to private property. They could fly onto the private after you shoot. Your fault if they do that. Also dont forget to get your wrist rocket endorsement. You need a different one for state land and one for forest service. You can also get one for shooting from a vehicle if you're lucky enough to draw. Good luck!

I'd like to see sling shots legal for all small game personally. I used to make a few bucks in Oregon killing Nutria, the state would give you like $3 for each one you killed (because the are an invasive species that spreads disease and also causes massive amounts of river erosion.) With a steel marble and a well placed shot you'd have no issue taking down small game here in Wa. As it is, it's illegal so I wont do it. Seems silly though that as long as I have my deer tag I can legally shoot a grouse with my .308 but not a sling shot. Maybe just my opinion.

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.

You my friend have no idea what your talking about. ;)

Please explain?
Shooting a slingshot proficiently takes a lot of practice or some serious natural talent.  What percentage would take the time to become consistent?

As the moose camp cook my grandmother used to get dozens of grouse each year in Canada with a sling shot.  She claimed the best ammo for grouse were old studs taken out of snow tires.  But claimed that even green pinecones would work fine for grouse.

I can't even begin to count how many barn swallows we cleared from the calving barn back when the family had the dairy farm.  We weren't allowed to use steel or lead in that barn so we used hazel nuts and a sling shot instead of our bb/pellet guns.

I'd love to see that rule change and allow the use of slingshots on grouse.

Ok, time for a cold band slingshot project, no walking in the projectiles. 

Post your range, weather conditions, ammo of choice, band/s used and draw weight, prong spacing and handle type. 


we'll have three classes

1) commercial slingshot with wrist stabilizing straps shooting ball bearings.
2) self made handles w/o wrist straps shooting formed commercial shot.
3) primitive Y sticks off a bush with rubber strap material shooting primitive ammo such as rocks or other non-produced shot.




PICS!

Better get your multi-season and sling shot applications in by the 1st. Only $10 to apply and $150 if you draw. That early wrist wrocket season can be amazing.  Cant beat the taste of a rock killed bird. No pellets to bite on either. Just be careful to use good judgement if you're close to private property. They could fly onto the private after you shoot. Your fault if they do that. Also dont forget to get your wrist rocket endorsement. You need a different one for state land and one for forest service. You can also get one for shooting from a vehicle if you're lucky enough to draw. Good luck!

Winner, winner.
