A varmint is the boy that picks up your 16 year old daughter on a Saturday night and brings her home after curfew with her hair messed up and blouse partially buttoned.

Make sure you check your Regulations Digest before you shoot anything. For example, rabbits may be a pest in your area, but if they have a season as they do in my state, then you'll need a special permit to hunt them year round.

You might want to check your regulations, because, like rabbits, some states require you to have licenses to shoot those.

There's a two a day limit on those. No silencers are to be used and the shot must be taken within fifty feet with a centerfire rifle. The ideal placement of the shot is the mouth or voice-box area.

Edit: Oops, forgot to put this . I hope nobody thought I was being serious. I thought it would be obvious sarcasm was used but you never know.

Or you can just clean your guns when hes over to pick up your daughter .

To OP:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varmint_hunting

it gives a good list of varmints

"The term varmint is a US colloquial term for vermin, though it refers more specifically to mammal or bird pests, including:
predators, such as coyotes, wolves, foxes, or feral dogs, which can kill farm animals
rodents, such as rats, prairie dogs, squirrels, rabbits, and groundhogs, that can damage cropland or pastures or carry disease
invasive species, such as starlings, that are displacing desirable native species"
