I'm a little afraid to go after gator gar until I am sure I have the power in the slingshot. Currently, I am setting up the slotted bottle reel on my crossbow. I don't want to lose another monster like last year with the recurve. Many of the shots at Texoma are over 4' deep. I don't think my slingshot can penetrate. Chief AJ is comming down in a couple weeks and we are going out together. I hope to learn some slingshot "tricks of the trade"

4' foot is pretty deep. I'd have to crank my oneida up for that situation.

ChiefAJ is an amazing shot. I hope you guys have a great time. Take lots o' pictures and good luck!
