How big animals is it possible to hunt with a sling?

I think deer and such would be out of the question, unless  you have a very large sling. Might be possible to temporarily stun them though.
  It sounds feasible to take out fox and yotes with them. Distance would be a determining factor in the strength of the shot.
  Rabbits and such, go for it.

When I was in Scotland this summer, there were rabbits, hundreds, everywhere!
Oh, if I just had my sling then...

I was in walmart today and they started playing Christmas music, which is one of the three things in this world that can send me off into a rabid fit without delay, and I started patting my pockets, looking around for my sling, which I remembered I had left in my truck. Bad time to be without a sling, I thought.

What type of ammo did you use to kill a goose? Where did you hit it?
I've also noticed it's easier to hit targets in water, when trying to hit ducks.

Just check your laws and make sure it's legal to hunt.

I took aim for a goose on a lake once. I missed by about a foot, and managed to splash it. I would've tried again, but then I realized that I probably would've killed it and I had no intention of taking it home with me, so I stopped.
