    I have been hunting with my slingshot since last year and I have only got starlings. I want to hunt some thing bigger than a starling what would some one recommend for a slingshot?

    I'll use my compound bow for deer. I was thinking more like rabbits and muskrats.

    I just googled it and you can use the same bands to kill the oversized beaver and use 25mm steel

    Muskrats are large rodents that live near water. They have thick brown fur and a long, fur less, scaly tail. They can grow up to two feet long with tail. I was to late posting you beat me to it . THANKS!!!!

    Luckily they do not cut down trees but they feed on crops bordering waterways and they dig channels up to 50-100ft long.
    They are a big pest but luckily I got a friend to help me a snake that I have never seen before it has black/orange bands and is about 5ft long. I can't find any info on the snake so its a mystery. Thanks for information for what kind of bands/ammo to use! One more question steel or lead?

    Rabbits but not foxes. You need something bigger like a rifle or bow for foxes.

    I don't know if I would kill a fox with a slingshot my limit is rabbit ,muskrat or the mystery snake if I see it. Before I shoot any thing with my slingshot I have to take care of a coyote before it gets are calves and piglets. I'm going to try to take it with a compound bow.

    I use to have a donkey,but it got to mean so I had to get rid of it. If I kill the coyote nothing will go to waste because I will tan the hide,European mount the head and feed the meat to my Dermestid Beetles that we use to get all the flesh off of the bones so we can European mount the animal.
