    Hello everyone from SE Alaska -
    I'm new to this forum. This is actually the first forum I've joined, so be patient with me. I have a renewed interest in slingshots. Since I was a kid actually. I am very excited to start making and hunting with slingshots. I am an avid fly fisherman, and chase steelhead, salmon, and trout in the rain forest of Southeast Alaska. When I'm pounding the water with my fly rod I often run into grouse. We call them hooter here. To make a short story longer. Ha ha! I also find myself without a means to shot them. Mostly because I've left my .22 rifle in the truck. Because it's to cumbersome to carry a rifle when your chucking flies. So I thought a slingshot would be the perfect thing to reach out to those grouse. Anyway I'm very excited about this forum and learn from you guys. Oh ya I did catch a grouse with my fly rod last spring while steelhead fishing. Called it out of the trees. It landed on the bank and I casted and casted until I snagged it. A slingshot would be a lot easier. Merry Christmas everyone!

      Thanks Brother! I think fly fishing and slingshot shooting have a lot of things in common in terms of the skill set, purity, accuracy, etc. You'll love fly fishing!

      I'm sure you will fit in here just fine.
      Don't worry about messing up and not knowing what to do. If they accept me then you will have no problems here.
      I look forward to hearing what you have to contribute.

      Hello and Merry Christmas to you too! I accidently caught a seagull with a wobbler when I was a kid. As I remember I was more scared than excited about that. ;)

      Welcome,
      I spent a few summers in south east AK. Wrangell to be specific. I wonder if you have heard of the Redoubt Report news paper. It's my cousins paper.

      Anyway hope to see some post of your hunting!

      Matt

      No doubt! I caught a bat on a fly in Montana at sunset once. I wasn't trying to. That was pretty scary as well. Like your seagull he wasn't to happy! I think he thought he was catching an easy meal.

      Welcome aboard. Sounds like you're in a great place. Feel free to post pictures of your catches, we have a fishing section. Hope you can get a few grouse to show as well.
