Improvised Survival Slingshot
The slingshot is a very versatile weapon often overlooked by many as just a child's toy. About 20 years ago it was just a child's toy until it was modified into what it has become today. Its takes very little practice to learn to shot one effectively, either for target practice or for hunting.
As better ways of making the slingshot evolved, so did the way it was used. Today the slingshot is used for hunting small game, having fun shooting at targets, competition shooting, and survival purposes. The slingshot has been modified to the extent that it can now be used to shoot arrows for hunting bigger game and for fishing.
The slingshot it quiet, so catching more game is possible since you do not scare the rest of the game away as you would with a gun.
Substitute for rubber tubing:
Bike inner tube
Car inner tube
Large wide rubber bands
Learning to use and make slingshots will give you a better chance and more choices when you need something in a survival situation to catch game or to use as protection.
Stay Prepared! Stay Alive!
