I read you guys saying 12 ga and such things . I hate biting down on lead pellets that have been cooked into my food so I use a 22 mostly . Have some small game points for my archery gear . Have only killed a bothersome groundhog with that . I managed once to injure a squirrel bad enough once with a wrist rocket (bean flip) that I was able to run it down and stomp it to death . I don't recommend that approach though . I was lucky the thing didn't turn on me . My brother has harvested squirrel with a blowgun . I've been wanting to try an old style sling (like David used ) . Also have a 800 or 900 ft per second air rifle that I have been thinking about using . Don't know if it is legal here in Arkansas . When my kids were little we had some lighter than legal for deer hunting bows . I asked a warden about using them on rabbits . He said it is ok . I figure it probably the same for squirrel .
