Still trying to beat the Guinness world record With my slingshot. As part of my practice for that I have been shooting down drones, cans and Balloons. It has been a little while since I tested myself to see how many cans I could get in a minute. But I practice daily, sometimes an hour a day. I think it will take me at least 2 more years to build up the speed and accuracy needed to knock down more than 24 cans in a minute at 33 feet. But I feel like I'm well on my way And a lot of that is due to the fact That I started using a new slingshot pouch. Warrior Slingshot pouchs reached out to me recently and provided me with a full selection of the slingshot pouches they make. They make a very unique slingshot pouch which is laminated Synthetic Cloth Stuck to leather. Previously the pouches i was using would end up all twisted up after each shot and make me fumble the reload. The slingshot pouches Warrior provided me are a bit stiffer and spring back straight after each shot so they are ready to receive the reload. Combine that with the new tubing I purchased from Simple Shot Slingshot Company I've increased my slingshots efficiency Buy at least another 50%. Which is ultimately the most important part of all this right now. Because it doesn't matter how fast you are If the slingshot is all tangled up when you go to reload. Now it's just a matter of more practice It is winter comes on I have begun to build a slingshot range inside the house. In a year and a half since I came up with the idea of try To beat the Guinness world record of how many cans you can knock down in a minute with the slingshot My speed and accuracy has increased I thousand percent. Of course that's easy to say now because I had almost no speed for accuracy a year and a half ago. Right now I believe PF shooter to be the fastest man alive with the slingshot. PS shooters speed Shooting capability with a slingshot as far as I can tell is unrivaled. But there can be only one and it is my to someday be the fastest man alive with the slingshot and to that end I practice daily. And Like everything else I set my hand to I will never give up, I will never surrender.
Growing up with dyslexia And being made fun of by the teacher in first grade before they found out I had dyslexia Has given me an interesting perspective on how to deal with haters On YouTube and on the Internet. Especially since from a very young age I had to deal with Being bullied by my teacher and picked on by my peers after her example. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining I'm just explaining. Everything I've been through his made me the man I am today And if it wasn't for the trials I may not have had the strength to do some of the wonderful things I've managed to do already. Dealing with haters In life Has only contributed To my success.
So this is purely hypothetical I'm not under contract right now for a season of History channel Alone All-Stars. But I do take it for granted that it will happen unless the show goes under completely Which I don't see happening. It's just a matter of time and what a better way to spend my time but Preparing. After all I'll be going up against Alan , Dave, Jim and Ted's excellent adventure And I suppose a few others by the time they put it together All of which will have never quit. My brain has been busy coming up with new hacks for my gear And refining my 10 items list. I don't intend to change Any of my items. With the exception The slingshot Which won't be Swapped out for something different as much as Upgraded. I was only allowed 30 pieces of ammo for the slingshot which I painted pink so I could recover it and shoot it as many times as possible. In the end I pretty much just shot rocks every day for practice And brought all but two or three of the pink ammo home. There was Almost nothing to shoot the slingshot at But when that day came I was ready and got that one bird with my slingshot and a rock i was saving for the day. I cooked it for like two hours in the fish head soup and after 70 something days Of fish that was the best thing I had ever eaten. But I'm going to have to do a lot better than that if I'm going to out survive the others next time. I feel like I dropped the ball little bit by not making arrows out of the bamboo there and making a slingbow to shoot fish. The odds of that being successful are very slim but it may have been a better use of my time then making 200 spoons for Christmas Presents. But if I just started off with the right slingshot that could shoot arrows and still be a slingshot I could probably bring home the bacon. As long as there was something to shoot. So if the archers going out on Alone can bring a bow and six arrows. It shouldn't be too hard to get permission to bring a slingbow With six arrows. I'm thinking 2 with broadheads, 2 with fishing heads, and 2 with Practice tips. I have to make a primitive spool for the front the slingshot But I don't see that being too difficult when it comes to the fishing. I've even managed to shoot fish With regular slingshot ammo but that means you have to jump in and get them. I haven't shot my bow since I picked up the slingshot three months before heading out on Alone. And back then I made my arrows by hand from the sitka spruce of old boats masts. They were gorgeous but not the most durable things in the world when you missed as often as i did.
I'm thinking Fiberglass arrows might be the most Durable arrow to bring. What do you guys recommend?
And I've been shooting simple shot Hammer but I want something that goes in my pocket so it's always with me and the hammer is a little big. Has Anyone Tried Shooting arrows With a slingbow braced only with a lanyard?

After watching Bill Hays how to cut a card with a slingshot video i thought i try my hand at it. I didn't do to bad at my first ever try at cutting a card with my slingshot at 33 feet.
Found The Zombie playing cards at the grocery store for 3$ They cost nine something on Amazon. So check your local grocery store before you go spending nine bucks on Amazon. They make great targets for rifle and slingshot Even if you just shoot at the Zombie head.
Special thanks to Simple Shot And Warrior slingshot pouches for providing me with the Awesome gear I used in the video.

You will be surprised to see the simple but elegant solution i found that keep my knife blades razor sharp in the bush. This week ill show you how i sharpened my tools out in Patagonia and how to sharpen a knife without a sharpener in the bush. As well as get the wattle walls on the new shelter started. I had the Multi tool as one of my 10 items out there but the Swiss tool spirit dose not have any way to sharpen its self so i had to be creative. And the stones that i found there were not good for knife sharpening.
Isn't that just the way in life I was ahead two weeks ago On my videos. And all of a sudden I find myself behind. No worries. I'm going to take this next week To do some repairs to the YouTube channel. Basically a new intro video And some other behind the scene stuff. And by the end of the week It will be business as usual. And episode 9 Of 87 days We'll be outNext Sunday all about my Shelter building and How I sharpen my tools without sharpening stone on Alone.
