a lot of it is personal preference. i was taught to hunt squirrels with a 22lr. had some uncles who hunted with shotguns. walking thru the woods, hunting them as you see them in the trees, i would go with the shotgun. if sitting on the ground and waiting, i would hunt with a 22lr. some places we use to hunt had lots and lots of squirrels, and you could sit down next to a tree, shoot one, wait a couple a of minutes, then get another. i use to be able to get 10-15 easy that way.
