[Joe Clark and Ron Unternahrer Toss Up a Target Egg for Slingshot Milligan]

Description: Photograph of Joe Clark and Ron Unternahrer tossing up a target egg for Slingshot Milligan to shoot. In the image both men are wearing towels around their necks from the splattered egg matter. The two men are practicing the height of the egg being tossed in the air for the photograph they are making where Milligan shoots the egg with a Milligan Special slingshot.

To add to the difficulty the object was also to miss the photographer, the assistant and also the camera which is directly behind the trajectory of the egg and in the path of the stainless steel ball bearing used for target shooting.
