    I haven't went squirrel hunting in a long time. I need to load my quiver with some extra arrows and do some squirrel hunting while I deer hunt...lol. I always see them then Smile.

    I like to use 6 shot versus the 7 gives you a touch more reach and less bbs to spoil the meat, But i am all for that Benjamin air rifle once the leaves are off.

    I use my 20 gauge with low brass shells or just my 22. I have had lots of success with both.
