    I shot this rabbit today while teaching a young man how to shoot and hunt. I didn't have steel balls with me but the opportunity was there and I knew marbles would work. 15 yards, 1 shot to the head and it was instant death. I was using my Claw Wedge I make. Anyway Mr rabbit is cleaned and in the freezer. The first picture was taken from where I was standing when I took the shot. There was a small window between the branches that I could shoot through and that was after it went through a field fence that was in the way.

    @vetryan15 ...I like to use them when I'm out just practicing anymore but the opportunity arose so a marble got used. They are very fast and do the job!

    @RUBEN_CO ....when I first seen him I wasn't sure if I should take the shot then I seen a 6 inch window and had a clear path to his head.

    @ntjones ....thank you!

    @Diabloslinger ....me too brother! Marbles will work that's for sure.

    @oldmiser ....thanks! Here's a link to that slingshot. https://www.slingshotcommunity.com/threads/claw-wedge.7940/#post-87743

    @Fletch. ....we need to go hunting soon. And we are so close we can share some games and dinner. Thanks buddy!

    Thanks. When I looked at the wound it took part of the skull off. It did massive damage.

    Marbles are sweet to use i use them alot. I use cats eyes on a sunny day. You can see them fly 50-60 yards in sun light. I just let one fly to get where I want it to go then home in on bout the third shot I got it. The white marbles I can see for a short distance then lose them, but the cats eyes I can do super long range with an can nail anything.

    I've gotten a couple videos that show the cat eyes flying through the air really good.

    Nice shot! Marbles will do the deed with good shot placement, I do prefer lead for most hunting though.

    I normally use steel or lead to hunt too. I didn't have any steel in my pocket at the time but had marbles and it worked like a champ. Only 1 shot needed and it became dinner.
