he seems really confident, but i wonder how many pounds of draw you can get out of a slingshot. sinking an arrow a foot into a strawbale doesn’t convince me that it’d sink that easily into a deer. it is a neat idea, but I’d like to hear about actual results.
p.s. i’m also interested in rewilding, and i’m from st. louis and will likely be moving to southern missouri (to eastwind), so maybe i’ll meet you at a future bois d’ark!

I agree that sinking into the side of a roundbale is not the same as sinking into the side of a deer. It would be nice to get an idea of the pound draw. However, the idea of a compact catapult is handy even for hunting small game.
I highly recommend the Bois D’Arc gathering. I went for the first time this year and loved it. Not only were there great opportunities and amazing instructors for learning primitive skills, but the people there (students and instructors alike) were all such genuinely nice people that it made the experience all the more appealing.
I also recommend Bo Brown’s First Earth Wilderness School near Springfield and the Ozark Folk Center in Mt View, AR, less than 2 hours south of Techumseh, MO.
Hope to see you at Bois D’Arc next year!
