Came across a forum where some guys were talking about using slingshots for small game. Has anyone on here tried or had success with that?

Are they even legal?
Ha! Its the TWRA, I was just testing you guys! 😂

No, but seriously, After some googling, it looks like only non-game species are legal with a slingshot in Tennessee. This appears to vary by state. Neusence species appear to be exempt from this. So i guess the proper context would be in the realm of non-game species as to not apply the burden of incriminating to the one answering.

Its seems like it would be awfully hard to pull off as I would think a slingshot is not the easiest thing to shoot.

You could even think of this more as a mental exercise in the hypothetical of survival skills if that context better suits.

When I was a kid I killed rabbits squirrels and a lot of birds with a wrist rocket, also been slapped in the face a dozen times or more from bands breaking or pulling loose, a 1/2 ball bearing has a lot of force when it smacks something, never heard of any speed but I was always trying to get the most I could, reckon that's why the face slap hurt so bad lol
