PocketPredator.com I was asked by a few to show a little more of the stalking aspect of rabbit hunting with a slingshot... so here it is. I saw this little guy out in the grass so set up a camera and went out to show how I do it if there's no way to set up a distraction or lure. It took me about 3 minutes to get into position for the stalk, a lot of boring air so I just cut to the "meat" of the stalk, when I was close enough to the rabbit for it to really notice me. I know it's difficult to see the whole thing, but watching it in full screen does help. Basically, you walk slowly in a loop to the backside of the rabbit. If it seems like he's reacting to you, stop and wait until his attention is off of you and then move. Your goal is to get in line with the back of his head and then slowly move towards it without making any noise. Usually I can get to within about 35 feet of the rabbit, but on this one I stepped on a twig and he hopped a little... knowing he was now aware and a little spooked I went on ahead and took the shot. His head and neck was not a viable option so I went for his heart... he hopped a little ways after impact and then died.
Ammo used was .41 lead, and the slingshot used was my Scorpion banded up with single per side 1" X 12" gold theraband... this propels the ball at about 250 fps, which is more than enough to go all the way through the rabbit.... as you can see in the following video, which shows this rabbit being skinned... which is interesting because you can see actual damage the .41 lead ball caused: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0wHpM...
