I admire and respect animals, I can't imagine killing one for sport or trophy.
Hunting is a sport to most, trophies come from time dedicated in the woods scouting, practice shooting, etc. I kill animals for three reasons; sport, trophies, and eating.

I realize some who participate in canned hunts get trophies with little work at all, and are not the majority in the hunting community.

I cut them in quarters, then let them soak in buttermilk overnight.
Then, I roll them in a batter mix with special spices and fry them in a fry daddy.

MMMMM fry daddy; ever make the fake beignets? That always was a kick, just some quartered canned bisquits & some powdered sugar, but everybody seems to love them.

Where I live, the only legal means of hunting them IS a shotgun. I use a 2 3/4 #4-#6 shell. Aim at the head and eat'em up.

Just remember, if you think you found some shot, spit not swallow.

Theres nothing wrong with using a shotgun for squirrels. Its a range game. I do it all the time. I use a remington 870 20ga, 2 3/4" shell with 7 shot, steel. Id use a .410 but finding a shell in steel is next to impossible

I don`t see anything wrong with hunting squirrels with a shotgun, I do .410 with 3in. #4`s that way you don`t get a lot of shot in them.

Oh crap, do you mean we are supposed to use steel shot on squirrels too?
