Okay, so this isn’t a typical post for us…but can you blame us for wanting to post something as cool as this ‘Old Time Slingshot’ by the Original Tree Swing?! Didn’t think so.
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.
We’re not saying carry this thing in your back pocket like your Bart Simpson, but we doubt you’ll be able to resist grabbing a few stones and setting up an empty beer can or two in the park. Available at Hickoree’s Hard Goods.
