Today I was hunting at my new spot, (under a huge over pass) and I got a well placed head-shot on a big fat pigeon that was sitting on an end stanchion (located on each support pillar)...Usually they flap their wings as their brain shuts down, and they fall to the ground, but this guy was back to me, and I shut him down like a light switch...He simply tell over, and stayed on the stanchion....I tried everything from throwing rocks to knock em off (which worked the last time this happened) to using my fishing rod with a treble hook, to fish em off... Without luck..
This really bothers me because it feels wrong...Taking a life all for nothing...Feeling pretty bad about it 😔
I suppose all I can do is not take the shot unless it's a garantee to drop to the ground...So, no shots when they are perched on the end stansions...Which sucks cause they are always the best opportunities...
Anybody have any good ideas on how to avoid this...Maybe crop shots instead of headshots?

I am a professional musician with a slingshot addiction!
I am also a proud Mi'kmaq (First Nations aboriginal) and a practitioner of our peoples culture and traditions; including hunting and spiritual rituals.
I also enjoy bow hunting, fishing, survival tactics, primitive weapon and tool crafting, ice hockey, hockey card collecting, and most of all, spending quality time with my kids!
Which hand do you hold your slingshot in?
What is your preferred shooting style?
