I live in an area filled with pine and oak.  During the summer, nothing short of a cannonball will get through.

 

I build and air launcher and it works fine in the fall. In the summertime it’s pretty much useless.

 

A drone won’t be any better (or at least not much) but I want one anyway!

Invest in some PVC and you can pick a reel up at a yard sale. The air launchers really do work. I have short trees, but 100" is realistic.

I'm a master at 'hitting' limbs with a slingshot and a couple of sinkers.  I'm much less talented at getting the sinkers to go OVER the branch.

 

It's amazing how fast those sinkers will come back at you - DIRECTLY back at you - after hitting a limb.

I had previously bought a cheap compound bow and taped a 1/2 oz weight to one of the arrows and can hit limbs up to around 75 feet.
