Ok so i have been wanting to get into hunting lately but due to multiple thing i cannot hunt with a fire at the moment( I gotta wait for my aunts boyfriend to buy a gun he has his foid already). But for now i wanted to hunt small game (rabbits,squirrels,certain birds?,etc.) I would eat certain things but if i can hunt pests i would do that as well. I own an air rifle that is pretty dang powerful and i put a 4x32 scope on it the box said it was detuned to 700fps but it is still pretty powerful. I would use that to kill small game of course i would only hunt things i know i can kill, i dont want to wound anything and have it suffer. Now here are my main questions what do you guys think of me using my air rifle to hunt? I usually shoot at a public field about 2 blocks from my house (i live in a suburb are not ****cago.) Whenever i shoot there nobody complains. People usually walk there dogs and play sports at the beginning of the field but i go farther down to shoot. I have shot my potato gun there and some homemade air rifles and my pellet guns and nobody ever complained. i use a dirt hill as a back stop. The whole field is about 2+ acres and seems at least 100 yards long and 75+ yards wide. I am wondering if it is legal for me to shoot there? there is also an are farther back that has a bunch of trees, brush and a small stream. is it legal to shoot and eat certain rabbits or squirrels seen there? If not what do i need to do and where do i need to go to legally hunt small game? I did research but couldent really find anything on hunting with pellet guns.
