Survival Slingshots

Your guide will lead a DIY course on how to build a slingshot from a natural tree fork, duct tape and simple office rubber bands. The result is a custom-built survival slingshot, capable of providing fun and challenge, or improved for use as a hunting tool in a wilderness survival scenario.

How It Works:

You can either meet us at our location, or we can travel to a wooded area near you. Your guide will take you through the steps for building a slingshot and then teach you how to use it!

  • Building the Catapult Frame
  • Building the Slingshot Bands and Pouch
  • Attaching the Bands to the Frame
  • Making clay ball ammunition
  • Slingshot Target Practice on the Range

Building the Frame

We'll find and cut a natural fork tree branch that fits nicely in the hand, and then shape it into the perfect slingshot catapult with a knife and sandpaper.

Banding the Slingshot

We'll use either regular rubber bands (size 32 or 64) or "flat bands" (size 107) latex rubber bands, fashion a "pouch" out of duct tape, and use a special jig to help attach the elastics onto the slingshot frame.

Slingshot Range

Now that we've built the slingshot, we'll head over to the firing range to learn how to safely load, aim and fire your survival slingshot using a variety of eco-friendly forms of ammunition.
