if you hit the animals fatally then yes, it would kill it.

That's more than enough, my grandkids target shoot with bows of that poundage and even their blunt headed little twigs sink into the foam of my 3-D fairly deeply. Bunnies aren't very sturdy, and squirrels won't run far when they're pinned to the ground.

I dont think that you could ever kill a squirrel with that. If you did it would run away with your arrow. Rabbit ..YES.. i have killed plenty with a junky pellet gun. They are easy to kill. Have fun hitting them with a bow though..I have gotten yard bunnys with my bow, never while actually hunting for them though.

I saw a Roger Raglin show where they were hunting rabbits,jump shooting them with light poundage recurves,they killed several that day,I was amazed shooting a rabbit isn't that hard if you are close and they are sitting still,but running?I have killed a squirrel with my little bear recurve that was about 30 years ago,it was a twentyfive pound pull,just remember shock kills small animals better than penetration,and blunt points will be a lot easier to retreive than a sharp one that sticks in dead logs or other stuff.KNOCK THE FUR OFF THEM AND HAVE FUN!!

Easily, use a judo tip so you don't do as much damage to the meat.
