Hickoree's Old Time Sling Shot

Always wanted one of these.
This classic sling shot is hand made from branches of the Buckthorn bush, a European hedge plant commonly found in suburban neighborhoods in Minnesota, and now considered an invasive species. Buckthorn's hard "Y" branches are perfect for sling shots, and harvesting Buckthorn wood helps with efforts to control the species.
