Just for the “what the heck” aspect of it, I ordered “The Ultimate Guide to Squirrel Hunting: Everything You Need to Know to Hunt This Popular Game Animal” by Bob Gooch. The book was out of print, but via Amazon, I found a seller (kbooksusa) that could get me a “like new” condition hardback for $7.52 + shipping.
In The Ultimate Guide to Squirrel Hunting, here’s everything you ever wanted to know about the critter Americans love to hate—and hunt. There are concise descriptions of the differences between the Abert’s squirrel and the fox squirrel, and the sluggish western gray squirrel and the faster, feistier eastern gray squirrel. Maps show the ranges of these animals, and profiles explain where they live, what they eat, and how they move.
I doubt the author covers airguns; a Beeman R1 is certainly a worthy way to take down one of these pesky tree rats that decides to raid a birdfeeder. The book also covers cooking.
Could be entertaining. Seriously. Squirrels and feisty in the same sentence, much less book? Good stuff is sure to follow.
