I read a post by Kepis Bushcraft earlier tonight about a slingshot that he had made and it got me thinking about the basics of designing a slingshot. I had taken a few pictures of my most recent slingshot, designed a week or so ago. I have spent quite a bit of time over at the Slingshot Forum reading posts and looking at custom designs. The most important thing that I have learned about slingshot design is that a slingshot is a simple thing. It's not much more than a forked piece of wood with some elastic bands and a leather pouch.
I took a few pictures of some mushrooms that popped up in the front yard. After doing some research I found that they were not edible, not that I was planning on eating them anyway. I can identify a grand total of two edible mushroom species. Anything else I wouldn't risk eating. Mushrooms are certainly something you do not want to take chances with.
I hope you all have a great weekend and are finding ways to stay cool on these hot summer days.
