The Pathfinder School's Pocket Hunter!
This patented product was uniquely designed to convert a standard Marksman #3040 Model slingshot into a compact hunting slingshot capable of shooting standard size arrows for fishing and hunting. The Pocket Hunter was designed to provide a sleek, compact, lightweight, and efficient hunting unit that can folded and easily carried in a backpack, bug out bag, survival kit, or even on your belt. Use your Pocket Hunter and the fishing spool to bowfish with. Remove the adapter and use it as a slingshot with standard hunting bands to capture potential food sources and ensure your sustainability. The Pathfinder Pocket Hunter is the hottest in survival gear.
At a closer look, you will clearly see the smooth surfaces, the rounded edges, and rounded tips of the arrow rest, the 3 distinct sitting locations, thus allowing the hunter to hold the Pocket Hunter at an angle and still be able to accurately site the intended target.
The Pathfinder School recognized that carrying standard size arrows in your pack would be inconvenient, if not possible, that is why the Pathfinder 3 piece Take Down Arrows (sold separately) are a perfect complement to the Pocket Hunter. With a 40lb pull at a 28 inch draw, the Pathfinder Pocket Hunter and 3 Piece Take Down Arrows are the ultimate in survival tools.
PARTS MODLED & ASSMEBLED IN THE USA!
When using the Pathfinder Pocket Hunter, always be mindful of ricochet and always wear protective eye-gear. Before each shot, inspect the hunting bands for wear, brittleness, tears, or other signs of wear or breaking. Replace damaged or worn bands immediately! Do not use the Pathfinder Pocket Hunter until all these safety guidelines are met first!
Do not dry fire the pocket hunter or shoot steel shot, rocks, etc. without taking the adapter off first!

Solid slingbow, maybe a whisker biscuit will be ordered.
The 9,5mm nickel plated rounds do the job with the
Pathfinder pocket hunter.
It`s added to my fishing gear.

This is a GREAT TOOL. It is much more accurate than I could have imagined and at a greater distance. I would take this over a bow. It is faster to use it is PLENTY accurate and powerful for smallish game that is usually available in abundance. It is fast to get on target it is easy to keep draw weight while aiming, it is small, light easy to pack. With a couple of extra rubber bands I just don't think you can go wrong. Younger or smaller family members enjoy it more than a bow. You will practice with it more than a bow...and if need be ..it becomes a sling shot again in a matter or seconds so you can scoop up some pebbles and keep going. I hope they keep developing ideas like this. At the cost of a box of shells you can add this to your kit for an easy to maintain, quiet, multi use tool with and endless supply of rocks and reusable arrows. GREAT DEAL. And it is always a pleasure to do business with this family. Thank you all.

ordered the pocket hunter. took it out back when it arrived and i was putting arrows in the bullseye at 15 yards within the first 5 shots.set it up for fishing, used a plastic 2 liter bottle as a target, bam every time at about 20 feet.i modded my bands, cut them about a inch shorter and love them now for my draw. i plan on shooting it for fun. otherwise itll be in my bob. it may or may not be legal to hunt with here where i live. but, if im grabbing my bob im not to worried at that point!

Having essentially never used a slingshot before (perhaps as a kid, but I'm pushing 70 years young, so if I did I don't remember) and having only shot a bow once (I missed the target and never found the arrow), I found this brilliant device ingeniously simple. I hit the target first time, every time. This is the perfect item to include in a bug out bag, for hunting small game and even personal protection. I highly recommend it.

This product is fun to shoot and the 42lb bands are not to be underestimated.This product could really easily kill most animals from a small deer to a large rabbit. Or you could use a small ball berring or marble to shoot a pheasant or any other game bird.

IT WOULD BE BETTER WITH A WHISKER BISCUIT BUT I'M NOT COMPLAINING. WITH NO PRACTICE MY 8 YR OLD WAS SHOOTING A PATTERN AT 10 YARDS THAT FITS INSIDE A PAPER PLATE. HE WILL HAVE TO GET STRONGER TO PULL IT ALL THE WAY BACK. THEY DEFINETLY FEEL LIKE 42 LB. BANDS. CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE 55 LB. BANDS SHOOT LIKE.

I just got the pocket hunter took it out and within 50 min I shot 3 rabbits (not bad for a 13 year old) and it worked out amazingly good when I got home I decided to watch some of your videos you really know what your talking about and inspired me to upgrade and make at the end of the day I ended up with 9 wood common man arrows all with common man broad heads and upgraded the sling bow just like you did for the big game hunt.

An improved slingshot for hunting/fishing. Not quite a bow, but more versatile than an air rifle. Easier than either to carry. A great option for fishing. Dave's dual-use whisker biscuit might be better for hunting - I'll make one to see.

I used to fashion slingshots and shoot arrows with them as a child. This is quite an upgrade. I do wish that I had sprung for the heavy duty hunting bands though. A greater draw weight would be beneficial for shooting arrows.
