Slingbows, with heavy tubes, can be impressive, and since so few have any experience with a true hunting slingbow, it is often met with skepticism. Very similar to when I began bow hunting decades ago and people laughed at the idea of taking whitetails with a wooden recurve and "stick arrows" made of cedar. Someone forgot to tell the natives it could not be done.

This is a 2011 chrono test of a slingbow 206-216 fps. Those speeds have been eclipsed many shooters via heavier, doubled and/or more dynamic tubes. Most deer size hunters are using spear gun tubes or similar.

Why would you want to piss off a bear let alone maim an animal?

You must disapprove of bow hunting then, or you lack knowledge of this type of hunting and its capabilities?

Yes but only if a backup weapon is disallowed.

Re: Controversial Topic And Poll: Brown Bear & Slingshots

Slingbow style devices are pretty common in Mexico. Guns are illegal so the elastic energy of bands is utilized more than here in the US. We built them off of 2x6 boards that would definitely kill about anything. I killed several 2000lb Brahma cross cattle down there with one. Would shoot groups better than a bow. Basically a slingcrossbow.
