I think with a bigger gun the sholder is ideal, but with a 17 u need to be a little more precise

Why would you aim for a shoulder when you can just shoot them in the head? We're talking rabbits here.

I'd say use a bigger gun but shoot him right behind the shoulder and that should bring him down pretty quick.
