If you don't find a place, you could consider a good pellet rifle for use at the apartments. All the same firearm safety laws apply. Shoot from the window where no one can see you and panic.

If the local laws allow. I suspect C3 would know all about that, he lives in Virginia.

Ah, Woody me lad- ye should have asked SOONER!

And it is trouble you would be in for certain- In Virginia, those tree rats are considered GAME.
As in Dept of Game and Inland Fisheries.
As in Game Warden.
As in Perch Police.
As in Squirrel Sheriff.
As in season will end 29 Feb.
As in "Could you please loosen these handcuffs just a little?"

You WILL need a small game hunting license. PM going out to you.

That's what they say here, but i have thoroughly enjoyed sending many to squirrel heaven, both in the yard "in town" and in the woods. In the yard, you want to make sure you can show some "squirrel damage" to your home or "crops". However if you plan to dine on them, you should be aware that the town squirrels don't limit themselves to the food sources used by their "cleaner living" country relatives. Your mileage may vary given our geographical dispersion.

Don't forget to protect your nuts.

Sorry, Woody- as I said- it is late in the season. But you got a day in the woods out of it, so should not be a total loss.

This spring get familar with the woods you are going to be hunting in. Look for nut bearing trees. Hickories seem to like ridgelines, atleast thats where I've notice downhere. Acorn producing oak trees. After the nuts and acorns, squirels like large pine trees for the cones. Maybe the land borders a cornfield.

For me shooting a squirel is a bonus for being in a setting that is nice. Good luck.
