For game birds i use 8mm steel balls and never shoot out i dont think i can kill, i shoot no more than 15 yards, and i use 12mm lead balls on rabbits but never shoot out bigger than that, jeff
From how many meters can you kill a rabbit?With what bend setup?

I only shoot rabbits from about 10 yards, ones that are sat tight in the long grass, and never outside there holes, incase of a miss hit, i use a double black thera band, i also take one of my dogs with me when i can, i do a lot of shooting out of my car window, you can get up close, jeff

this is what a few rabbits can do to the famers crops in a few weeks,



head shot with a 9mm sleel ball, sorry if this photo offends any one that dont hunt, jeff

The only thing i shoot what you cant eat is rats because there a pest, a few from the other day , jeff
Yikes!

Rats are not nice at all! Do they often die on the first shot? I heard that rats are tough to kill
What do you shoot them with...
Seagulls are terrible at our factory, they are attacking people and screaming so we want to get them to calm down a bit...

I use any of my slingshots fitted with the thin tubes, find them easyer for fast action, they dont always die with the 1st shot, they sometime spin a bit, but when i go ratting i always have these little darlings with me and the finish the job, ha ha jeff,

I can't understand anyone who kills an innocent animal,
just for the second of joy you archive,

get yourself a paper target or something,
not a living animal!
I do it for pest control, rats pee all over the place and can cause blindness they are horrible, and all the other things i kill cause a lot of damage to the crops and cost money, slingshot are not a toy they were not made to shoot at targets, if you dont like hunting dont click on the post, it says Went hunting today, its a good job your not a member of my hunting site ha ha, jeff

Absolutely Shot in the Foot, and great reasoning Smitty!!! We really need to get back to the land and our roots as much as possible. I believe it's healthy and makes sense. Hunting, gathering, simple farming, and don't tell me you live in the city and can't. I live in the city and we are doing quite a bit of what's called "Urban Homesteading". We transformed our backyard into mostly garden with a section for 5 hens (for eggs) and a pygmy goat (for some milk or cheese later) and two small functioning barrel "aquaponic systems" that we have grown edible fish and veggies in as well. I also hunt and fish whenever I can.
Is'nt it funny what is a pest over were you live is a pet over here, this one go's round the schools with all my daughters other animals to give wildlife takes,
me and Rocco, ha ha, jeff

My arguement would be, that there is a percentage of legal hunting shots taken, that are not quick takedowns. This would include large and small game with rifle, shotgun, and archery. The flip side to that is, the percentage of quick takedowns with a slingshot is realistically higher. I'm all for hunting and the movement to legalize slingshots for small game hunting, but all facts need to be addressed. This is why this forum is a great tool to discuss issues just like this.
we have some silly rules over here, we can hunt with slingshots, but not bows or crossbows, i nearly always have a dog to retreave game that i have shot incase of not a clean kill, and i dont shoot at silly distances, jeff
