If your planning on taming a raptor a good method is to use a bola on the raptor and then keep hitting it in the head with the sling shot, make sure you take one or two more spare bolas just in case things go south or if the the raptor breaks out of the bola. Make sure to keep a bit of distance though due to the raptor being able to jump on top of you if you are close enough to it.
