The slingshot is to "quietly" add to the food larder. Grouse, squirrels and the very occasional rabbit/hare. I'd just cut the meat up and boil it with 1/2 a Top Ramen. Camp meat can add a couple of meals and extend your stay by a day or so. I use it only to replace a meal, not to supplement a meal. With a lightweight sleeping bag or wool blanket strapped to my day pack along with a small tarp and I would stay in about 3 or 4 days if there's water available. Camp was anyplace I got tired. I don't do it as much anymore because I need to get back and tend the pack animals but it's still a good way to scout.
Of course this was only when I hunt/scout alone. I'm almost always a little hungry and talking about it makes it worse. Come to think of it, Beef Stroganoff is sounding pretty good!
